Our neighbourhood

Green Square includes the suburbs of Beaconsfield and Zetland, and parts of Rosebery, Alexandria and Waterloo.

Much of the current development within the Green Square neighbourhood is happening in
4 distinct precincts, each with their own unique history and character.

As each precinct evolves, wonderful parks, public art and community gathering places will add to their personality. While on South Sydney’s doorstep, innovative food and wine merchants, brewers and gallery owners are turning old factories and warehouses into thriving urban sanctuaries.

The City is connecting these precincts through considered and high-quality design so residents and visitors can access the neighbourhood through cycleways, interconnected pedestrian pathways and a range of public transport.

Green Square residents won’t have to travel far to tap into the culture and creativity on their doorstep.

Community development

Green Square is one of the fastest growing areas in Sydney and one of our most diverse.

To help bring this diverse community together, the City’s community development coordinator works to connect locals with community groups, events and programs.

You can contact the community development coordinator if you're interested in joining a group, setting up your own, or want to apply for a grant to run a project or event.
