Boorooma Parklands

Consultation has concluded

UPDATE: The City of Wagga Wagga would like to thank Boorooma residents for their ideas and input into creating two natural, recreational reserves. Masterplans for Explorer Park and Lineal Park are now complete. Boorooma residents will notice works taking place in the designated parklands in the coming months.


Share your thoughts on the parklands below by clicking on the GUESTBOOK tab.


EXPLORER PARK will be three-hectares, located in the eastern corner of Boorooma, and will make the most of the steep land contours.

The parks design includes an elevated viewing platform with binoculars, more than 800 metres of pathway through natural parkland, two play areas and a fenced dog off-leash area.

LINEAL PARK will be a six-hectare, open space featuring natural wetland and woodland areas.

Located alongside Amundsen Street, Lineal Park caters for family-friendly fun, featuring a playground and a sheltered barbecue area.

Both parklands are part of Council's long-term plan for Boorooma, which also includes streetscaping and footpaths.

The combined total for the parklands is $1.2M, mostly funded through Section 94 contributions.

Preliminary works, weeding and fencing to establish boundaries, had already started.

Construction will kick off in August (weather permitting) and the completed parklands are expected to be ready by June 2017.

  • Boorooma Parklands take shape

    over 3 years ago

    Boorooma's dual parklands are ready to take shape with masterplans for Explorer Park and Lineal Park now complete.

    Both parklands take advantage of the suburbs’ natural landscape, and it even features in each design.

    Onsite rocks will be used as seats under trees and additional native plants and grasses will be planted to complement the already established greenery in the area.

    Manager Environment and Recreation Services Mark Gardiner said the parklands will provide public access into the nature reserves and a range of recreational opportunities.

    Manager Environment and Recreation Services Mark Gardiner said the parklands will provide public access into the nature reserves and a range of recreational opportunities.

    "During the design phase Boorooma residents were asked to provide ideas and input into what they would like from the reserves," Mr Gardiner said.

    "Council has taken these suggestions on board and designed two spaces that will offer a range of outdoor activities for residents, from bushwalking to picnicking, all while retaining the natural landscape of the area."

    Explorer Park will be three-hectares, located in the eastern corner of Boorooma, and will make the most of the steeper land contours.
