Gore Hill Park Redevelopment

Consultation has concluded

Council is currently seeking feedback on the Gore Hill Park redevelopment Draft Plan of Management and Draft Concept Plan.

The long term plan for Gore Hill proposes a synthetic playing field, on-site stormwater detention system, regional playground, exercise stations, barbeque picnic areas and an indoor sporting complex. The redevelopment is proposed to meet the needs of a growing and changing population in the St Leonards CBD and the wider Willoughby, North Sydney and Lane Cove areas.

The works will be constructed accordingly as funds become available. The oval is proposed to be re-orientated and converted to a synthetic sports surface to improve its capacity for high demand and community participation. Further to this the new regional playground shall provide for varying age groups, combining play equipment and natural play elements in a unique play setting.

The multi-purpose indoor sporting complex is proposed to be located on the Pacific Highway frontage for easy public access. The centre shall have underground car parking which allows for the removal of the northern car park for more landscaped parkland.

Please visit this page for details of further consultation activities to take place between 22 June and 4 August 2016.

    • The construction of a modular building including pavilion, change rooms and toilet facilities
    • Upgrading and re-aligning the Southern car park.


    Willoughby Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney said the redevelopment will provide a greater range of much needed active and passive recreational opportunities at Gore Hill Park, while at the same time, creating a park and playground for use by local residents, workers, visitors to the hospital and the wider community.

    Stage 1 is expected to be complete by the end of 2018. A latter stage will be funded by a Voluntary Planning Agreement associated with the development of the nearby Gore Hill Technology Park.
