New cove and public park to be developed at Sydney’s Barangaroo

New cove and public park to be developed at Sydney’s Barangaroo
April 26, 2017

A new Sydney Harbour cove, a one-hectare public park, an expanded waterfront walkway and a public pier are the key features that will be delivered in the next section of Barangaroo’s public domain.

The Barangaroo Delivery Authority, on behalf of the NSW Government, has released a proposal for the two hectares of public space that completes the design of Barangaroo South, as part of the Authority’s commitment to delivering more than half of Barangaroo as open public space.

Lendlease, the developer of Barangaroo South, will construct the public space, due to open in 2021. World renowned landscape architects Grant Associates, who designed Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, have created the park and garden design. 

The design includes Waterman’s Cove, a fully-accessible amphitheatre-style boardwalk on the water, which will be a magnet for visitors and Barangaroo office workers. It also includes the extension to Wulugul Walk around the Crown Sydney Hotel Resort.

The one-hectare Hickson Park will provide a green link from the CBD into the heart of Barangaroo’s retail and dining precinct.

Craig van der Laan, Chief Executive of the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, explained “this is an exciting proposal for the creation of more beautiful public spaces at Barangaroo, which will be of enormous benefit to the people of Sydney.

“The new harbour cove and public park represent the next step in the extraordinary transformation of Barangaroo from a 22-hectare concrete container terminal into a world class, vibrant waterfront precinct.”

Architect Bob Nation AM, the Authority’s Design Adviser who has overseen the design development, said the plans provide extensive public benefit and a completely different park experience to Barangaroo Reserve and the waterfront parkland proposed for Central Barangaroo.

Nation added “the Reserve catches a lot of direct sun, as will the western-facing parklands in Central Barangaroo. Hickson Park will get the northern sun in winter, but will be more sheltered from the wind and the hot western sun in summer.”

A Development Application will be lodged with the Department of Planning and Environment, and be available on public exhibition as part of the planning process.
