We’re redeveloping the pond located at Fordham Gardens to improve the aesthetics and amenity of the park for the community to enjoy.

About the project

In 2010 and 2015 we sought community feedback on two concept plans for the redevelopment of the pond.

Funding has now been approved for the detailed design and redevelopment of the pond (through Council's Capital Works Renewal Program) and construction has commenced to deliver on the final design. 

The pond redevelopment will involve the following key activities: 

  • re-lining and refilling the pond
  • adding aquatic plants and feature boulders to the pond
  • re-installing paths and access points
  • refurbishing the newly planned cascade rock feature in place of the previous open ponds.


Works commenced in early December 2018 and construction is estimated to take approximately 10 weeks.

During the construction period, the pond will be fenced off to ensure residents’ safety.
