Parks for People is an ambitious NSW Government program that sets a benchmark for high-quality public open space. In partnership with local councils, we are delivering diverse and community-driven parks across Greater Sydney.
These parks will be legacy spaces, taking the vision and ideas of the community and combining them with innovative design to deliver the right type of park for future generations to enjoy.
About Parks for People
Parks for People is a $50 million program to create better access to public open space across Greater Sydney.
In partnership with local councils and the community, we are delivering new and improved parks that can be enjoyed by the community as a place to relax, exercise, have fun, connect with families and friends and breathe in the beauty of well-designed public open spaces.
Each park will be planned and developed in close collaboration with local councils and the community to make sure the specific environmental, cultural, social and economic values are considered in the design.
The vision and ideas of the community and its stakeholders, combined with innovative design, will help create the right type of park for each community.
Concept designs began in 2020 and 2021m with construction starting in late 2021. We expect the parks to be completed from early 2023 onward.
Timelines for each of the parks vary and are updated on the specific project pages.
In June 2020, we confirmed the location of the new and improved parks across Greater Sydney.
- New parks at Appin, Beaumont Hills, Leppington and Glenfield.
- Park improvements for Carrawood Park, George Kendall Riverside Park, Nandi Reserve and Tench Reserve.
