Improving local parks and playgrounds

We are committed to improving our local parks and playgrounds through innovative urban design.

While we make improvements to existing facilities we also aim to create more green space with new parklands across the local area.

Before we start work on our parks and playgrounds, we ask for your feedback about the plans and designs on our Sydney Your Say website.

Current works

Renwick Street playground upgrade

We are upgrading Renwick Street playground in Alexandria, to make it a more pleasant space for children and families to enjoy. The playground will be closed during the upgrade for safety reasons.

We are repairing and restoring the sandstone perimeter wall and sandstone features in and around Hyde Park.
