Plans of Management (POM) categorise land, authorise leases or licenses and determine what development can take place. The key values of the land and its purpose are identified so they can be protected and enhanced. Council ensures public consultation happens for plans of management before they are adopted.
Allenby Park forms an outstanding natural setting of remnant bushland located adjacent to Beacon Hill and Allambie Heights. The reserve is characterised by steep valley slopes cut with two major creek lines. The Park has an irregular configuration with an extensive boundary surrounded by residential development on the higher plateaus and industrial development in the lower valley area.
Significant features within the Park include remnant Coachwood rainforest, waterfalls and creeks. The Park provides a unique opportunity to enjoy magnificent bushland scenery in only a short stroll from heavily developed industrial areas, providing a distinct contrast not evident elsewhere in Warringah.
Dogs must be on a leash at all times in this reserve and cats are not allowed here at any time.
Berry Reserve and adjoining foreshores are an integral component of Narrabeen's open space network. The combined reserve area forms a lineal corridor of public foreshore open space along Narrabeen Lagoon from the Esplanade in the south to Loftus Street in the north. The Plan of Management provides management direction for Community, Crown and Department of Urban Affairs and Planning land parcels that constitute the reserve. The lake-side setting provides opportunities for a diverse range of recreational activities and experiences. In addition to the park area, the Plan of Management incorporates a broad range of community buildings and facilities, including the historic Tram Terminus building.
The Reserve links with Jamieson Park to the south to provide a contiguous open space area along much of the southern and eastern shore of Narrabeen Lake.
The primary purpose of this Plan is to provide the community, users and Council with a clear direction on the future use and management of the land and building.
Brookvale Park is a significant recreational facility which plays an important role in both the local and national sporting environment, as well as providing much needed neighbourhood park areas. The land is bounded by Pittwater Road, Alfred Road, Federal Parade and Pine Street.
Brookvale Park was officially opened in 1911 and was home to the Brookvale Show for over fifty years. The Park has been the home ground for the Manly Warringah Rugby Leagues Club since 1947 and is now a major sporting and event facility within Warringah. Passive recreational opportunities are provided within the neighbourhood park areas which also include a regional playground and cricket nets.
