A new Sydney Harbour cove known as Watermans Cove, a one-hectare public park, an expanded waterfront walkway and a public pier are the key features of the next section of Barangaroo’s public domain to be delivered. The Barangaroo Delivery Authority has released a proposal for the two hectares of public space that completes the design of Barangaroo South, as part of the Authority’s commitment to delivering more than half of Barangaroo as open public space.
World renowned landscape architects Grant & Associates, who designed Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, have created the park and garden design. Lendlease, the developer of Barangaroo's southern section, will construct the public space, due to open in 2021.
The design includes Waterman’s Cove, a fully-accessible amphitheatre-style boardwalk on the water, which will be a magnet for visitors and Barangaroo office workers. It also includes the extension to Wulugul Walk around the Crown Sydney Hotel Resort.
The one-hectare Hickson Park will provide a green link from the CBD into the heart of Barangaroo’s retail and dining precinct.
A Development Application is on public exhibition with the Department of Planning here.
