In a tribute to the former Mayor, Lynne Czinner, a new park has officially opened in Warriewood this week.

The park effectively doubles the amount of park available for the Warriewood community to use at this location and complements the existing park affectionately known as ‘Rocket Ship Park’ through its new bridge connection across Fern Creek.

The park was renamed, in consultation with the community, to Lynne Czinner Park after the former Mayor of Pittwater and environmental trailblazer.

 

The new green space includes:

  • A shared path and pedestrian bridge connection across Fern Creek
  • Picnic areas with BBQ facilities, shade and water bottle refill stations
  • A fitness area
  • Network of pedestrian paths
  • Open grassed areas
  • Native plantings and landscaping
  • Car parking on Dove Lane

Northern Beaches Mayor Sue Heins said this highly anticipated open space will be well utilised by the community.

“By naming this green space after Lynne we honour her legacy. May this space forever stand as a testament to her dedication, vision, and service to our community.

“This project was fully funded by developer contributions providing a wonderful new open space for the community to enjoy now and into the future.” Mayor Heins said.

One of Lynne’s three children, Trent Czinner described his mum as being incredibly generous.

“We are so proud and thankful to the Council for choosing to honour mum in this way. Mum loved plants and nature and advocated for shared outdoor spaces, and she would have loved this park. We grew up in this area and it holds a special place in our hearts.

“Mum became a Councillor only to make a difference, but I know she would be chuffed to be recognised for her years of tireless work on the Council. In fact, I think she would cry with joy and be lost for words with the naming.

“On behalf of mum, her children and grandchildren, I want to say how humbled and honoured we are that this absolutely wonderful park carries her name, and I hope it will be a place that creates special moments and memories for all of the lucky people who live here or come to visit.”

Lynne Czinner was elected to the first Pittwater Council in 1992, serving consecutive terms until 2008. Within that period, Lynne spent four consecutive terms as Deputy Mayor from 1998 to 2002, and in 2004 Lynne was elected as Mayor.

The park was officially opened this week by Mayor Sue Heins, two of Lynne’s three children – daughter Antonella, son Trent and their families, along with councillors.
