A group of local residents formed Turramurra Park Bushcare in October 2006. They have been working to regenerate a corridor of Blue Gum High Forest along Lovers Jump Creek which runs through the park, joins Cockle Creek and flows through Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park to Cowan Creek at Bobbin Head.

The group has 20 members on its mailing list, with a core group of about seven regularly attending the working sessions which are held on the fourth Sunday of each month. The aim of the group is to restore a healthy bushland corridor along the creek line and they are concentrating on the section of creek between the two pedestrian bridges near the cricket nets. Their long term goal is to link up with other groups working on both public and private land downstream.

Maintaining a healthy bushland in urban settings is very rewarding. Council and community volunteers have planted large numbers of native trees to replace those destroyed by the 1991 storm.
