Ponds and Banks Track upgrade


Project summary

Ku-ring-gai Council was awarded a total of $1.006 million from the NSW Government's Places to Roam grant program.

The grant will be used to upgrade the Ponds and Banks Track, comprising a boardwalk and sandstone track connecting the picnic area called Lamberts Clearing with the Garden’s function centre known as Caley's Pavilion.

The track is one of the most popular within Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden and the existing boardwalk will be upgraded to improve safety and accessibility. Surrounding bushland will also receive additional protection for endangered species including the Eastern Pygmy Possum. The new boardwalk will be constructed from recycled plastic material which is more durable, low maintenance and resistant to moisture and insects such as termites. The grant funding will also be used to provide interpretative signage on the area’s native plants and wildlife and its indigenous history.
