Providing better access to the historic Corridor of Oaks in Faulconbridge and the adjacent Jackson Park is an important part of new draft Masterplan and designs for the upgrade of this significant community space.

The draft Masterplan, and draft concept designs for the NSW Public Space Legacy Program works, have now been developed and are available for the community's review and comments, which will help inform the final designs.

To view and have your say on the drafts, take part in the online survey by Wednesday 13 April 2022 at here

Council will also hold two drop-in information sessions at Jackson Park (Cnr Sir Henrys Pde and Wigram Rd, Faulconbridge) on:

  • Wednesday 6 April: 10am - 1pm
  • Saturday 9 April: 1pm - 4pm

Staff will be available at these sessions to discuss the draft plans and masterplan, provide survey forms and answer questions about this exciting project.

The planned upgrades will create a new look and feel to the site, preserving its old features and character, but making it more welcoming and accessible for all.

The works in the draft concept designs for the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program include:

Blue Mountains City Council Mayor Mark Greenhill said: "The Corridor of Oaks is a valuable space for many in our local community and beyond. It's exciting to see plans to renew the area and make it more accessible come to life through these draft designs.

"I encourage everyone with an interest in this special site to consider the designs and have their say. The community's feedback is a vital element in how we shape projects across the City."

The local heritage-listed Corridor of Oaks is significant as a commemoration of the successive Prime Ministers of Australia since Federation.

The Corridor of Oaks upgrade works are made possible thanks to a $2 million funding package from the NSW Government's NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program.
 

About the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program:

The NSW Government is investing up to $250 million through the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program to support councils to deliver more and better public spaces across the state. This is the biggest injection of funding for public spaces in a generation.

Blue Mountains City Council received funding for two Legacy projects: Blackheath Soldiers Memorial Park, and the Corridor of Oaks and Jackson Park, Faulconbridge.
