Lake Gillawarna

Sprout worked with Alluvium and Bankstown Council to regenerate bird habitat and revitalise a 1970’s parkland designed by renowned Landscape Architect, Allan Correy.

Islands within the lake were re-configured to naturally filter water and densely planted to enhance bird habitat. Re-worked lake edges improve public safety and complex planting matrixes offer diverse habitat zones for a range of species.

A viewing deck nestled into the upper bank allows the public to engage with birdlife and is a popular spot to appreciate sunsets behind the island. Share path network improvements and additional furniture provides the community with an enhanced recreational amenity.

An increase in the parks visitation for weddings, birdwatching, picnics and active recreation is testament to the social and ecological outcomes the project delivers.
