Contract awarded for Billabong Parklands

Landscape Solutions has been appointed to deliver the landscaping and buildings of the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands for Campbelltown Council, NSW.

The team will soon commence a connected network of pathways and seating surrounded by tree plantings and open spaces to ensure visitors have easy access to the three main pools within the Parklands. In addition to the landscaping works, Landscape Solutions will construct the entrance building, plant room, storage facilities and shade huts.

Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Project

The project includes a range of recreational water-play facilities, landscaped areas, parklands and amenities over the four hectare site, including a stream, swimming lagoon and a zero-depth play area.

Design features are based on the local Dharawal National Park and Georges River to reflect the importance of the local environment and Aboriginal culture.
