Kippax Lake in Moore Park has a long and rich history. Originally a swamp, this area now serves the community as an important greenspace for leisure and recreational activities.
Everyday visitors can be seen enjoying the tree-lined walking paths, sightings of the many aquatic birds that live there and participating in actives taking place on the multi-use lawns.
With funding from Transport for NSW, construction of new amenities will begin from October 2019 with an expected finish date of March 2020. The public facilities will include toilets, bubblers and a wash trough.
This much needed upgrade will also kick start the revitalisation of Moore Park East for the community which was identified in the Moore Park Master Plan 2040.
During construction we ask that visitors take care in the area and observe the signage in place. For additional details about the new amenities block please refer to information below or contact the project managers at Transport for NSW here.
The new design will be sensitive to the landscape with a similar building footprint, durable materials, water efficient fittings and natural ventilation. A snapshot of the works include:
Demolition of existing amenities block

Shower stalls and changing rooms for community and sport bookings
Monday to Friday, 6 am to 6 pm
Saturday, 8 am to 5 pm
Out of hours (night works or weekend work) will be covered under further notifications and stakeholders will be notified in advance by Transport for NSW.
Noise and dust
Every effort will be made to reduce the impact to residents and businesses while work takes place however, visitors may experience some noise from machinery.
Where required, noise blankets will be used, and vehicles will be switched off when not in use to minimise noise. Any dust generating activities will be watered down.
There will be minimal disruption to traffic and traffic control will be in place to assist when required.
Vehicle access to the northern parking areas will be restricted during the construction period from late October to early 2020. Access will remain available to the southern parking grounds throughout the project.
Location of Works
Construction will take place at Moore Park off Driver Avenue.
