We are developing Henson Park's 10-year Plan of Management and Master Plan and want to know how you use the park and how you would like to use it.


Area covered by the plans. Click on image to view in more detail.


Overview

In 2018 the State Government amended the Crown Lands Act. As a result, we need to update and adopt Plans of Management for all Crown Lands public open space. In November 2018, Council adopted an Inner West Open Space Areas Plan of Management Priorities list.


Plan of Management

Council is preparing a Plan of Management (POM) and Master Plan for Henson Park. The POM is a guiding document which directs the future planning, management and use of the park. The POM is accompanied by the Master Plan which outlines the vision and actions required for improvement over the next 10 years.

Henson Park is a well used multi purpose park with several facilities used by organised groups and the community. We want to know how you currently use the park and how you would like to use it. The feedback we receive will be incorporated into the POM which will go on Public Exhibition in 2020.


Proposed upgrades

As part of the Plan of Management, we are proposing a variety of works to upgrade the functionality of Henson Park. These proposed works include:

  • Building reorganisation
  • Upgrade to the sporting ground
  • Upgrades and improvements to the King George V Memorial grandstand
  • Improvements to make the park more inclusive for women's and girl's sports.


Have your say

Tell us how you use Henson Park and how you would like to use it

The last day to provide feedback is Sunday 17 November 2019


Drop in sessions

Come along to a drop in session in Henson Park in front of the grandstand. Speak to the project team and share your ideas and comments.

  • Wednesday 6 November 2019, 5:30pm - 7pm
  • Saturday 9 November 2019, 10am - 11:30am


What happens next?

Your feedback and input from other stakeholders will be used along with research and expert advice in the development of the draft Plan of Management and Master Plan. The documents will go on public exhibition for any final community comments before going to Council for adoption.

    Concurrent to the master planning process, Council is :

    • Upgrading the oval turf to elite sport standard
    • Installing a storm water harvesting and treatment system to reduce the use of town water for irrigation
    • Rearranging the storm water drainage network across the field
    • Installing a new field drainage system, including water recycling
    • Upgrading the irrigation system
    • Rectifying the long-term sinkhole in the centre of the field
    • Renewing sports light pole wiring


    When will the works finish?
    Construction started in October 2020 and is planned to continue until March 2021, weather permitting. The oval and a portion of the park (in the south east corner) will be closed for public access during the construction.
    Council will make sure noise and disruption are kept to a minimum by enforcing hours of work from 7am-5.30pm Monday to Friday, and 7am-1pm on Saturdays. Thank you for your patience during the construction period.
