Ivanhoe Park Masterplan to go on Public Exhibition

By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 27 May 2021
A proposed new grandstand for Manly Oval and reclassification of the Scout Hall for general use are part of the draft Masterplan and Plan of Management for Ivanhoe Park, soon to go on public exhibition.

The public exhibition is planned to commence once the Minister of Planning, Industry and Environment provides consent, as the Masterplan covers Crown Land.

Mayor Michael Regan said the draft Masterplan respects the history and heritage value of the Park and reflects the unique landscape of the site.

“Our idea for the grandstand is that it blends in with the Park rather than being the dominant feature of the park. It would provide equitable access, fit for purpose change rooms, storage, amenities and security. It would be subject to State or Federal Government funding.

“Council is also proposing to make the Scout Hall available for community use, and plans to consult with the community about this.

“Ivanhoe Park is a significant heritage site with a rich cultural landscape and sporting history. It is also an important open space for the people of Manly and surrounding districts.

“The draft Masterplan and Plan of Management, if implemented, will transform Ivanhoe Park into a safer, accessible and more enjoyable park that will become a hub for the community; whether through sporting activity on the Oval, or enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful Gardens or through celebrating events held on the Oval. Encouraging greater use will provide social, physical and cultural benefits in the community.

“It will protect and enhance the State Heritage listed landscape character of the Park and support the native and Victorian plantings found in the Botanic Gardens.”

On 23 August 2019, Ivanhoe Park (including Manly Oval) cultural landscape was listed as a heritage item on the State Heritage Register.

Following this heritage listing, Council resolved to prepare a Masterplan, a Conservation Management Plan and a Plan of Management for the whole of Ivanhoe Park.

As part of this process, Council asked the community via public consultation in late 2020/early 2021 what they liked about all areas of the Park and what improvements they would like to see.

This feedback has been incorporated in the draft Masterplan and Plan of Management.

The Park is formed by two parts, the passive recreation area known as Ivanhoe Park Botanic Gardens and the sporting precinct incorporating the Manly Oval, Bowling Club and Tennis Club facilities.
