The Heritage Park Wetlands project is a treatment system that improves the water quality of Blayney’s stormwater and consequently its impact on the Belubula River. Native species have been planted to support filtration and attract wildlife.
The Belubula River flows downstream into the Carcoar Dam.
The Wetlands project was completed around 2000 and was jointly funded by Blayney Shire Council and the NSW State Government.
The Bird Viewing Platform opened in June 2010 is the result of another collaboration between Blayney Shire Council and Nestle Purina Blayney. It was funded with a $25,000 grant from Nestle Purina’s annual Community Environment Program.
The Heritage Park project participants were - Blayney Shire Council, NSW Department of Sport and Recreation, Newcrest Mining, Nestle Purina and Country Energy. The Park was completed in 2008
Heritage Park is an attractive and pleasant place to spend time. It has many shade trees, a sensory garden and the meandering creek which provides a relaxing setting and a connection to nature. With the park located on the edge of town there are also attractive views across The Wetlands to the hills and farmland beyond.
