Governor Phillip Park is set to receive a $1 million makeover including new gardens and avenue plantings, new park entry signage, bollard fencing and a carpark upgrade which will improve traffic flow and parking capacity for boat trailers. The project will be jointly funded by Hawkesbury City Council and the NSW Government as part of the Regional Recreational Trail Enhancement Project.
Situated in Windsor, and one of the main access points for boating on the Hawkesbury River, Governor Phillip Park is a well utilised park that is both a meeting place and a major boating events area.
The Governor Phillip Park Regional Recreational Trail Enhancement Project is part of the implementation of the Windsor Foreshore Master Plan. The project will be rolled out in stages during 2018. The Windsor Foreshore Master Plan was developed in 2016 in conjunction with user groups to improve the amenity of the park and to provide additional facilities to complement the existing function of the park.
Additional Council funding of over $600,000 will be used for staged works which will include a new playground, river bank stabilisation and new pathways where South Creek and the Hawkesbury River join.
