Australians love the outdoors. It’s where we play, grow and connect.


The goal of the Office of Open Space and Parklands is for everyone in NSW to enjoy attractive, safe and accessible parks and outdoor spaces. Our focus is building and promoting places that meet the needs of our unique communities, and are used as a part of everyday life.


By continuing to champion new programs, we want all NSW citizens have access to spaces of celebration, exploration, activity, and memory making where everyone belongs.
