What Are We?
The Blackwattle Cove Coalition (BCC) has been established from the communities of Glebe, Pyrmont and Ultimo to collaborate on matters of joint interest.

It is our primary intention to work in consultation with the Wentworth Park Sporting Complex Trust, the City of Sydney and the various State Government Departments involved in planning the future of Wentworth Park and the Blackwattle Bay foreshores.

What Are Our Objectives?
For many years much of the Blackwattle Bay hinterland has been a neglected wasteland dividing Ultimo/Pyrmont and Glebe. The Blackwattle Cove Coalition aims to pursue rejuvenation of this area and make it a significant asset to the surrounding communities by improving public access and community facilities in the Blackwattle Bay/Wentworth Park precinct. Our priorities are to achieve:

  • Development of an integrated planning regime involving relevant State and local government authorities
  • Community access to the Blackwattle Bay foreshores
  • Integration of the portions of Wentworth Park presently administered separately by the City of Sydney and the Wentworth Sporting Park Complex Trust
  • Safe access to Wentworth Park and the development of community recreation facilities in the park
  • Sympathetic development of the Bank Street, Blackwattle Bay foreshores and Fish Market sites.

Who Are We?
BCC active members are residents and business people from Glebe, Pyrmont and Ultimo, drawn from the following organisations.

  • The Glebe Society
  • Glebe Chamber of Commerce
  • Pyrmont Action Inc
  • Pyrmont Progress Incorporated (PPI)
  • Council of Ultimo/Pyrmont Associations (CUPA)
  • Ultimo Village Voice (UVV)
  • The Harris Community Centre
  • Pyrmont Ultimo Chamber of Commerce

An avenue of native figs separates Wentworth Park from the
foreshore of Blackwattle Bay.

Membership is not limited and can include other community groups who share the BCC objectives.
