GOVERNOR Phillip Park in Windsor will receive a bigger car park, improved traffic flow conditions and a number of other upgrades planned by Hawkesbury Council.

The upgrade will cost $1 million and will be jointly funded by Hawkesbury Council and the state government.

The parking will be expanded to provide more room for boats and trailers, while the traffic flow will be altered.

Concrete bollards will also be installed, while new plants will be added to the park.

The work is being completed as part of the state government’s Regional Recreational Trail Enhancement Project and is part of the Windsor Master Plan.

“It’s fantastic seeing places like Governor Phillip Park being upgraded because it shows our commitment towards better outcomes for our local community for health, sustainability and climate change,” Hawkesbury Mayor Mary Lyons-Buckett said.

“This strategic project will improve a regionally-significant open space which offers links between our park, Windsor Town Centre and our beautiful Hawkesbury River.”

The state government will contribute $500,000 to the project, with Council matching that figure.

“It’s wonderful that Council has received $500,000 in funding from one of the longest running grant programs in Sydney, the Metropolitan Greenspace Program, through the Greater Sydney Commission,” the Mayor said.
