Volunteers sought to restore park into nature reserve

Umina Community Group is seeking volunteers to participate in the rejuvenation of Guyangil (Gwung-gil) Park.

The park, in Australia Ave, Umina Beach is the vacant lot adjacent Umina Child Care Centre car park.

Group secretary Mr Peter Springett said: "It's a beautiful little park, just unloved for some time, so we hope this project will see it become a park for future generations to enjoy.

"Families might recall the good work done by the group and community volunteers in restoring the Runway Park in Woy Woy, which was a huge success," Mr Springett said.

"Guyangil will be a similar project but on a smaller scale."

Umina Community Group has been awarded a small Federal environment grant to restore Guyangil Park into a nature reserve.

Mr Springett said the aim was to provide a habitat corridor for native birds using native trees, shrubs and grasses.

"When completed, the park will be a place for families to escape their busy lives and connect with nature," he said.

"For this project to be a success, we need the community's help.

"Preparation of the site, planting and watering is the major focus for volunteers.

"If you can lend a hand at any stage, weekday or weekend, morning or afternoon, between the months of April to October this year, please get in touch by sending an email to

The project will be co-ordinated by Umina Community Group members Debbie Sunartha and Jenn Rochford.
