Use to wash hand and drinking water for all including pets. Installing BBQ placements and seating huts will have families enjoying more family time and everybody getting active. Fix tennis ground in George Kendell and install bicycle racks in all 3 parks.
Could use a nice make over at the end of Hughes Avenue giving access to the walkway along the river like the one at the end of Wharf Rd.. At present the current situation is unmaintained - messy and dangerous
Walk safely along the streets without tripping on uneven ground or being forced to walk on the road outside parked cars if wheeling a pram, wheelchair or walking frame.
There is mix of young parents and older residents who need a footpath.
Enjoy the park with its extensive walking tracks, BBQs, seating areas and play equiptment but no toilets.
Small children and others get caught out and are forced to go in the bushes. This is most undesirable.
This is the only park I have ever met that has water, BBQs, eating areas and play equiptment but not toilets.
so that we can improve the quality of life of some of our elderly, disabled, or isolated community members, whilst bridging generations and creating discussions between families, neighbours, et al. all whilst supporting education and sustainability.
A community garden in Bruce Miller Reserve, with a pedestrian crossing for safe access to the park could be just the thing our little community is looking for!
The traffic and parking around the shops is a mess, deterring local residents from shopping here. Design a one-way system to ease the congestion, minimise accidents and encourage local residents to use their local shopping precinct.
The off leash dog park is very popular, however a number of individuals with their dogs arrive after work often at night after 6pm to about 8pm, and require flood lighting and protection from rain over the seatings. plus decent car parking ceiled are instead of rocks & gravel.
Give some life to this peaceful park
Be safe, connect with community and have fun.
know that Ermington - took its name from the mansion of Major Edmund Lockyer, the founder of the settlement at Albany, WA and later Police Magistrate to Parramatta. Before that 'Ermo' was part of the Eastern Hills and the Field of Mars region where Governor Phillip had granted land to eight marines around 1792 and was known as One Tree Hill - also once a signalling station.
'Ermington House' was completed in 1828. Lockyer acquired more land in the area and by 1830 had over 1900 hectares on which grazed 1280 sheep and over 300 cattle. The riverside farmland, that was once Ermington produced fruit and world famous wines, was gradually transformed with young couples (people) buying cheap land subdivided by the Government after World War II. A large amount of public housing was constructed by the Housing Commission of NSW and is mostly extant today, 70 years later.
Travel easily using the unique rivercat ferry. Add a wharf, some coffee shops and place that attracts people to the area for dinner or a relaxing afternoon drink. Too many people crammed onto the congested road system or under provided bus - options to get to the city are limited. Build a ferry wharf, that is the seed to start a whole river fronted community.
enjoy bbq facilities and days outside with the kids family and friends
the play equipment is out dated and worn out
water bubblers and toilets to assist in extended play time
Commute to Parramatta and the City without using the roads.
I want this to be installed so people can stop and rehydrate while doing physical activities.
