Robert Pymble Park: Have your say on the NEW design!

Robert Pymble Playground
The park’s new playground design is based on a theme based upon the area’s former use as a fruit farm by its namesake Robert Pymble.

Robert Pymble Park is slated for a makeover, and now’s your chance to have your say on any equipment you think would improve the playground!  Ku-ring-gai Council are inviting our community to give their feedback on the new design planned for one of Pymble’s most popular parks.

A tractor, a farm-inspired climbing frame and fruit-shaped rocking ride-on equipment are just some of the ideas Ku-ring-gai Council are considering for an overhaul of Robert Pymble Park, at Pymble.

The park (and the suburb West Pymble) is named for Robert Pymble,  a silk weaver from England, who was granted land near what is now Pymble Station in 1823. By 1828 he had transformed the area to an orange grove, which is why the new concept playground will have a fruity theme!


Some of the proposed play equipment

The new playground forms part of a bigger upgrade planned for the park, following public consultation last year on its future and a masterplan completed in March this year.

Other proposed features are new seating, picnic areas and cycle parking, plus a circuit track for younger children to ride scooters and bikes. Nearby toilets will also be upgraded.

Accessibility will be incorporated into all aspects of the playground, in keeping with the Council’s philosophy of inclusivity for its playgrounds.

You can view the proposed design and submit a comment until 5pm on Thursday 22 October 2020.

Robert Park Pymble: The Plan

The current playground facilities do not meet the requirements of a District Level Park due to the limited play opportunities currently available to Park users.

This proposal will incorporate the following elements in the playspace or nearby:

  • The installation of Park furniture such as seats, tables, bin, bubbler, bicycle parking and toilets
  • Improved accessibility for users of all age groups and abilities, including entry points and circulation throughout the space
  • A circuit track for younger children to ride bicycles and scooters
  • A variety of robust materials including concrete, sandstone and softfall
  • New planting and areas of turf
  • The installation of play elements inspired by Robert Pymbles fruit farm, encouraging the development of skills such as spinning, balancing, climbing, rocking, sliding and swinging
