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!
Give opportunities for athletic sports - given the large amount of space a circuit could be set up similar to the cycle track at lidcombe oval or the running track at olympic park, but it would be available for public use.
People from the Northern side of Victoria Rd can safely access the excellent current and future community spaces South of Victoria road. Victoria road already has too many pedestrian crossings that slow down traffic and are frustratingly slow to cross safely as a pedestrian and cyclist.
Be safer on the bridge
My ideas to improve Ermington would be to place a ferry wharf along the Parramatta River, plant lots of Magnolia Soulangea trees for street landscaping and beauty, hold a weekly event like a night market/food stalls/farmers market along Ermington Shops carpark and to upgrade the existing playgrounds in the area such a water activities and to add water activites along the Ermington River area for residents and visitors.5So that people can utilise the river for travel and leisure, residents can enjoy the beauty of Magnolia Soulangea trees with low to no maintenance, current businesses at Ermington could potentially increase their income and marketing exposure if markets were held along the carpark once a week and playgrounds would offer families and visitors a chance to sit back and relax if playgrounds were upgraded with more activities for the kids and older kids to play.
Go places without having to trek up the hill to the bus
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.
Commute to Parramatta and the City without using the roads.
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
I want this to be installed so people can stop and rehydrate while doing physical activities.
