2014 National Award for Planning Wianamatta Regional Park Masterplan Environmental Parnership NSW

Jury comment

This masterplan was prepared to guide the establishment of a new regional park – a rare opportunity and major responsibility for the landscape architect-led team to shape a regional open space. The area, covering approximately 900 hectares, is part of the former Australian Defence Industries site at St Marys.

The masterplan seeks a sustainable relationship between natural and cultural conservation and recreation, focusing on the creeklines and remnant endangered alluvial Cumberland Plain Woodland. The park has to accommodate recreational functions for the surrounding urban development sites while managing the park’s remnant flora and fauna as a biodiversity refuge.

This project is respectful of client needs and addresses the need for biodiversity conservation while providing a spectrum of recreational opportunities for present and future generations.
