Knapsack Park Plan of Management

Blue Mountains City Council
Knapsack Park Plan of Management
Community Consultation on Saturday afternoon

Blue Mountains City Council will be holding a Community Consultation day on Saturday 29th July from 12pm-4pm at Knapsack Park. An area near the gate will be cordoned off to house their display. Interested people will be able to provide a submission on their preferred vision for the use of the many parts of Knapsack Reserve. This will assist Council to prepare a 20 year development plan.

Many people will be aware of the significant role that the Blue Mountains Soccer Club have had in developing the sports park since the 1970’s, and that we are very proud of our role.

Knapsack Reserve, of which the sports park is a part, extends from the highway near the railway tunnel and old sewerage treatment works to Lennox Bridge and down to the railway line at Emu Plains.

These parts of the reserve will be considered in the plan as well as other features such as its lookouts over the escarpment. Other activities that occur such as bush walking and mountain biking, with its historical aspects such as Lennox Bridge, the oldest bridge in Australia and the Zig Zag railway nearby will also be considered.

All members of the club are invited to visit the Council display on Saturday and have their say on the management of the sports park and the whole reserve.
