Transforming Hornsby Quarry into a Centennial Park-style parkland
TTW together with Environmental Partnership have been engaged by Hornsby Shire Council to assist in the delivery of what will become a significant recreational and sports precinct for both the local and greater Sydney community.
Covering 34 hectares of land, the Centennial Park of the north will house multi-use sporting fields adapted for various organised sports and provide multiple amenities, grandstands and maintenance sheds. The scope of works also includes new access roads and car parking including a new link between Quarter Sessions Road and Sefton Road, play facilities for active and passive recreation, including mountain bike, and walking trails.
Featuring many sustainability initiatives, there will be opportunities for water sensitive urban design and revegetation of the existing surrounding bushland. The park will be built on a post landfill site which will address a range of challenges, including its landfill history and context within an Endangered Ecological Community (EEC).
