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

The Drying Green

Green Square’s central park will be named The Drying Green to celebrate its industrial past. Lawns, trees, barbecues and shade structures will create a wonderful place for friends and family to gather and play.
