Project updates

Keep up-to-date with our progress on the Wimbo Park redesign.

Project details

We will create a bigger, better, and more pleasant Wimbo Park, extending from Bourke Street to South Dowling Street in Surry Hills.

In 2015, we asked the community for ideas on what the new park could look like. These ideas helped us develop a concept design.

Last November, we sought community feedback on the concept design, which includes:

  • a new urban plaza
  • 5m wide shared path
  • an outdoor classroom
  • in-ground trampolines
  • and a sunken forest.

You can view the concept design.


Consultation has now closed and we are refining the design based on feedback received.

A development application for the new park will be lodged next year.

We are working closely with the NSW Government to develop the new open space alongside the light rail construction.
