Glenfield Parklands

Parks for People

Through the Parks for People program, the department has been working with the community on a master plan for 43 ha of future public open space, located on the banks of the Georges River in Glenfield.

This master plan considers the potential of the site to become a unique riverside location for relaxation, play, and enjoying nature. It provides the community with better access to the Georges River while protecting the Aboriginal cultural landscape.

There is no current commitment to build the park. The master plan has been informed by the feedback received from community engagement completed in 2023 and will set a vision for a future parkland.

About the new park

The Glenfield Parklands master plan has been developed in close collaboration with the local community, key stakeholders and design experts.

We want to make sure that the environmental, cultural, and community values of the area are well understood and reflected in the master plan.

Design process

Step 1

We found out what can be achieved on the site. The top priorities are to protect the unique environment and scenic beauty of the area, providing access to this place and offering places to connect in a sustainable way.

Step 2

We gathered ideas and feedback from the community and key stakeholders through in-person information sessions, an online survey and an interactive design board. The insights will inform the Glenfield Parklands master plan.

Step 3

Further community consultation will be undertaken when funding is secured.


The 43 ha site is in the heart of Glenfield. It provides the local community with many direct access points to open space and bushland pockets that adjoin the Georges River.
