Centennial Precinct Central Ponds

Published: Monday, 24 June 2019 at 11:16:04 PM

The City of Albany is undertaking works to redevelop the Central Precinct in Centennial Park. Currently existing within the central precinct are two man-made ponds that are used for irrigation and recreation. The primary recreation that occurs is the sailing of Radio Controlled boats. The projects objectives will meet some of the current issues associated with the site, such as:

  •  Inefficient water reuse including poor summer rainfall attenuation and overuse of the bore to sustain high water levels in the Eastern Lake.
  • Providing pedestrian link (promenade) between Lockyer Ave (eastern Precinct) and Sanford Road (Western Precinct).
  • Existing eastern pond (sailing pond) is too small to hold significant remote control sailing boat events.

The general scope of work includes:

  • Construction of a retaining wall to form the Northern edge of the new pond.
  • Construction of a weir on the Northern edge of the pond.
  • Expansion of the Western pond and appropriate edge treatments.
  • Filling of the Eastern pond.
  • Installation of boardwalk over new weir.
  •  Construction of a footpath (promenade) linking from East to West.

Civil works are expected to be completed by the end of May 2019 with associated infrastructure expected to be installed by the end of August 2019.
