Rouse Hill Regional Park
What we're doing
Park management activities
Rouse Hill Regional Park has management strategies in place to protect and conserve the values of this park. Visit the detailed park and fire management documents. Here is just some of the work we’re doing to conserve these values:
Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats
Pests and weeds have a significant impact to the ecosystems within Rouse Hill Regional Park. NPWS carries out risk assesments for new and emerging weeds as to protect biodiversity in this park.
Weeds and pest animals cause substantial damage to agriculture and our environment, so it’s essential we manage them in NSW national parks and reserves. Our regional pest management strategies aim to minimise the impact of pests on biodiversity in NSW. We work hard to protect our parks and neighbours from pests and weeds, ensuring measurable results.
Developing visitor facilities and experiences
The upkeep of Rouse Hill Regional Park’s visitor facilities is an NPWS priority. Programs relating to the review, management and enhancement of the park’s facilities are ongoing and its amenities and infrastructure receive regular maintenance.
NSW is one of the most bushfire prone areas in the world as a result of our climate, weather systems, vegetation and the rugged terrain. NPWS is committed to maintaining natural and cultural heritage values and minimising the likelihood and impact of bushfires via a strategic program of fire research, fire planning, hazard reduction, highly trained rapid response firefighting crews and community alerts.
Bushfires are inevitable across fire-prone vegetation types within NSW national parks. NPWS prepares for wildfires by working with other fire agencies, reserve neighbours and the community to ensure protection of life, property and biodiversity. Every park has its own fire management strategy, devised in consultation with partner fire authorities and the community to plan and prioritise fire management.
