The future of Moore Park South

Project Status: Under review

Public consultation period to

Project background

In late 2020 we consulted the community on a proposal to convert part of Moore Park Golf Course to a public park.

We proposed the changes because there is a need for:

  • A backyard for inner-city residents

    80,000 people will be living within 2 kilometres of the area by 2040.

  • A large and green space for passive recreation

    Centennial and Moore Park Parklands is Australia’s largest community sports precinct, with over 120 facilities for more than over 30 different sports including golf, cricket, athletics, equestrian, tennis, soccer, netball, basketball, rugby league, rugby union and AFL.

    What our area needs now is more open space for passive recreation, such as walking, picnicking or simply relaxing.

  • Accessible for everyone

    Once the fences come down, our large and growing community around Moore Park will be able to freely enjoy this beautiful parkland.

  • The lungs of the city

    The parkland at Moore Park could have thriving wildlife habitats and increased tree canopy, giving locals living in high density a space to enjoy nature.

We also proposed creating new public paths around the perimeter of the course improving access to other parts of Moore Park and Centennial Park as proposed in the Moore Park master plan.

What’s proposed?

Greater Sydney Parklands is now exhibiting a discussion paper on the future of Moore Park South and are welcoming input from the community on plans to make this space accessible for all of the community.

The City of Sydney will work closely with the NSW Government to ensure that as much public parkland is available for the community while retaining the Moore Park Golf Course club house, driving range and a 9 hole golf course.

Consultation closes 10 April 2024
