RYDE PARK CAFÉ AND RECREATION FACILITIES
The Ryde Park recreation precinct establishes a new café and recreation hub within the existing established heritage focused district park, designed in association with Day Bukh Architects. The new facilities expand the current recreational opportunities and diversify the uses within the park. The recreation facilities include play area, multi-use courts, bocce court, cycle loop track and large picnic areas. These provide for a range of ages and abilities, encouraging visitors to the park to stay longer. The new café is centrally located, opening out to the grassed open spaces and play areas, providing a new civic presence in the park. The new park facilities are carefully integrated into the park setting and around existing trees, taking advantage of the mature park character.
