About the new park
Carrawood Park is in Carramar, a diverse and vibrant suburb in the Fairfield City Council local government area. It is used for a wide range of recreational activities and is a special place for the local community.
The upgraded Carrawood Park supports the health and wellbeing of the community and is free for all to enjoy. The aim was to create a relaxing and peaceful experience, promoting a range of activities and play for locals and visitors.
The centrepiece of the park is the new inclusive ‘Big Bass’ playspace. Inspired by the site’s Prospect Creek location, this unique experience is informed by the department's Everyone Can Play guideline, and encourages people of all ages and abilities to play.
Preserving the natural setting and unique assets of the woodland and creek was also a key element of the approach. The park’s stretches of Cumberland Plain Woodlands have inspired new tree planting along major pathways and at the main hubs of activity. This helps create cooler, natural corridors for people to rest and relax as well as improving local ecology.
Importantly, the design encourages people to gather and come together to celebrate and learn about the diverse, vibrant and growing community of Carramar.
