The community is invited to share their opinion on several infrastructure proposals earmarked for beautiful Freshwater Beach.

As part of the Freshwater Beach Masterplan four sites have been prioritised to start the works including a new playground, a lookout with terraced seating, designated seating areas, grassed picnic areas with shelters, picnic tables, and electrical BBQ’s as well as new ramps and footpaths to improve accessibility.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the project is highly anticipated by the community.

“Freshwater Beach and surrounds is a popular destination for local residents and visitors that bring the community together.

“These works have been some time in the making with the original masterplan adopted by Council in 2018. We now have concept designs that we are sharing with the community to get their input to hopefully move closer to implementation.

“The proposed works to the beach front are the first major renewal works undertaken since the 1980’s. The Masterplan will see upgrades to several public open spaces to meet the future recreation need of the community, improving connectivity and celebrating the heritage of the area.” Mayor Regan said.

The community is invited to view the detailed concept design and share their thoughts on the Northern Beaches Council website by 14 August. Community feedback will be used to refine the designs. Construction is anticipated to commence in Autumn 2023.

In addition, as part of the Coast Walk and Public Art project, a boardwalk extension linking McKillop Park with the boardwalk to South Curl Curl will be installed next year. This will include a commanding yet elegant public artwork at Freshwater headland and a further playful installation at Freshwater Beach.
