New Warriewood Family Park a little closer
Local Warriewood families will soon enjoy more open spaces and recreational facilities at Lynne Czinner Park.
Council passed park management plan, greenlighting construction of new picnic areas, shared trails, bridge over Fern Creek, bike pump trail, amenities fitness and additional parking spaces.
Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the new park will boost open spaces in the area and provide a fun recreation space for local residents.
“This great new park provides a great open space for families to stroll and explore, ride bikes, kick a ball around, exercise, or just relax and unwind,” Mayor Regan said.
“The council has been gradually acquiring land in the Warriewood Valley for over two decades now, creating a wonderful green corridor for the community.
“Lynne Czinner Park is one of the key links in our open space network, providing green space that everyone can enjoy.”
The concept plan was developed in consultation with the Warriewood Valley Residents Association and local families and received strong support when presented late last year. Of the 67 submissions received, 95% supported the concept plan.
The management plan will encourage passive recreational use in the park, conserve biodiversity, protect local flora and fauna, restore and regenerate natural bushland, and restore and protect natural waterways, including Fern Creek.
The bridge over Fern Creek will connect the reservation to the local playground affectionately known as Rocket Park.
The reserve was named Lynne Czinner Park last year, in honor of the former councilor and mayor of Pittwater.
“This new park is a fitting tribute to the late Lynne Czinner, who was an ardent and passionate conservationist,” said Mayor Regan.
Work will begin later this year and is expected to be completed by mid-2023.
