Sydney Water plans for the naturalisation of the Cooks River at Whidden Reserve

Sydney Water is holding a Community Information Day with sausage sizzle to show what they intend to do with bank naturalisation work at sections along the Cooks River.

The first area to be naturalised is upstream from the Second Avenue Bridge Belfield with work due to commence late July 2013.  They will also talk about other naturalization work planned for Flockhart Park to Beamish Street Campsie. After these have been completed, work will start on Heynes Reserve next to the Cup & Saucer Creek Wetlands in Canterbury.  I last wrote about the works planned here – http://bit.ly/StsjU6

It is fantastic that the horrible concrete banks will be removed from these sections of the Cooks River. The plans show the areas to be naturalized will have many new trees & areas of substantial habitat created, which will be most beneficial for wildlife that live in & on the river.  People will benefit as well.

The Information Day event is happening –

  • This Sunday 16th June 2013
  • 10:30am to 1pm
  • Whiddon Reserve Croydon Park.
