Sienna Gardens open space upgrade

Project update

Consultation with the community has now finished, and Council would like to thank the community for their time and input, which has led to the development of some concept plans for both parks and additional street planting.

The feedback we received has informed both plans, as well as consideration of the available space, safety and environmental concerns, and budget.

Final designs for the project are now complete. The final concept plans are available in the documents library on the right hand side of this page. The plans show what play and recreation facilities will be included in developing these parks, as well as the location of trees in the street tree planting plan.

We are now working to get these plans underway, and a full progress timeline can be found in the key dates on the right hand side of this page.

Council recently invited tenders for the construction works, with the tender closing date 17 October. Council intend to award the contract in December, subject to Council approval, with the anticipated commencement of construction in January 2019.

Some elements of the construction will depend on budget, including the trampoline and associated works in Caddens Road Park, the Bushwood Balance Trail and its associated works in South Western Neighbourhood Park.

What are we doing?

Sienna Gardens is another new and exciting residential community in Penrith City. Soon, two new play and recreation facilities will be constructed within two reserves in Sienna Gardens and we want your input and ideas on what you would like to see in them. Also included in the project will be the development of a street tree masterplan.

Utilising funding from the Claremont Meadows Section 94 Development Contributions Plan an expert consultant has been engaged by Council and they will be designing the open spaces in Sienna Gardens with input from the local community.

The overall project has three components and the current scope of works proposed are as follows:

Caddens Road Park (south eastern corner) - a half basketball court, adventure play equipment, two picnic areas and shade shelters

South Western Neighbourhood Park - play equipment, seating and pathways

Street tree planting - in Buttercup Street, Cherrywood Street, Evergreen Street, Pandorea Street, Raintree Street, Redgum Street, Silkwood Avenue, Watercress Street and White Cedar Avenue.

The proposed new facilities are located in the area highlighted by the red outline on the location map in the document library in the right hand column of this page.

We want to know what you’d like to see in the two reserves in your community and you can tell us by filling out the on-line survey that is available at yoursaypenrith.com.au between 27 April -18 May. Following the community consultation, preliminary concept plans will be developed and presented at a community information workshop on Sunday 17 June.

Once the design process has been completed Council will engage contractors to carry out the construction work.

Why are we providing these facilities?

Council is committed to providing residents with quality active recreation spaces that offer a place to unwind, a place to meet and a place to take part in community life. These new play and recreation facilities encourage us to be active, and an active city is a healthy city.

How can I have my say and stay up to date with the project?

Come to our pop-up event

We will be holding an information pop-up session on Sunday 17 June at Caddens Road Park from 12-4pm, and everyone is welcome to attend. At this session preliminary design concepts and plans will be presented and residents will have the opportunity to speak directly with Council staff and the consultants.
