Here is an extract from their Map (coutesy NBNCo.)
Walkers and cyclists on the Picton cycleway from the Botanic Gardens to Natasha Place will have noticed the works being carried out on the banks of Racecourse Creek. These works became necessary because of the gradual downhill slippage of part of the Razorback Range over a number of years.
This slippage slid in to Racecourse Creek and pushed it out of its original alignment. The resulted in serious erosion of the creek bank adjacent to the cycleway. Users may have seen that this steep erosion had crept within about a metre of the cycleway reserve. If not checked it would eventually have taken away part of the cycleway.
Jarvisfield Estate has completed Stage 1A of a new development of residential lots off Hereford Way and as a part of this project, works to repair the creek bank have also been completed. The creek bank has been sloped back and re-grassed and a substantial rock wall has been placed along the bottom of this slope to resist flood conditions.
The cycleway was re-aligned to accommodate these works.

In March 2007, almost 12 hectares of land in Fairleys Road, Picton (adjacent to Jarvisfield) was purchased by Wollondilly Shire Council for the future installation of Sporting Fields and Facilities.
Since then the Mayor, Cr Col Mitchell has been working hard to secure funding for the project to go ahead. “Wollondilly Shire Council has applied for a funding grant with NSW Sport and Recreation for $200,000 and if we are successful Council has resolved to allocate $200,000 from Developer Contributions towards the project also,” says Cr Col Mitchell.
“Wollondilly has a huge number of junior sportspeople.... We have 700 netballers, 1200 Oz Tag players, 900 junior rugby league players, not to mention soccer players, Australian rules footballers, and cricket players, as well as many other sporting groups” he says.
“I have been working closely with State member for Wollondilly Phil Costa, who has opened some doors for us in terms of meetings with the Hon Kevin Greene, Minister NSW Sport and Recreation.
“Once we have secured some funding and make a start on the project, we can then apply for further funding that will allow for the development of the facility,” says the Mayor.
Julie Mallam has been elected President of the Wollondilly Garden Club
