Victoria Park

As part of our commitment to ensuring community access to excellent parks and playgrounds, a range of improvement works will be undertaken in Victoria Park, Camperdown. These works follow on from prior community consultation and approval by Council. The works include:

  • path and park lighting to improve safety at night
  • improved and more accessible park entries on City Road
  • new concrete path connections from Cleveland Street to the University of Sydney and Barff Road entry to Victoria Park Pool
  • a new decomposed granite path to the park's perimeter from Cleveland Street entry to University Avenue to improve accessibility and provide a new recreation loop
  • new seating, water bubblers and park signs
  • a new active recreation space with a netball practice court and table tennis tables
  • installing 2 new stormwater pollution traps for Lake Northam
  • removing existing sediment and installing a new recirculation system, pump and weir to improve water quality
  • installing a new bio-retention zone and a new wetland designed with reed plants to clean and filter stormwater runoff in the lake.

We consulted with the community about the works in December 2014. You can download the summary consultation report.

The City is continuing to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members to ensure cultural and historical sites of significance in the park are well acknowledged.

Victoria Park is a popular walking route and also hosts events, including the Mardi Gras Fair Day and Yabun Festival.
