Play Space Concept Design

Consultation has concluded

About the project

Canterbury Bankstown Council is upgrading Parry Park to provide the community with an improved open space and recreation resource into the future.

In 2018 we gathered your ideas and aspirations for the park. Using your feedback, we prepared and Council adopted the Parry Park Masterplan. The Masterplan will guide improvements to the park over the next 20 years. Projects identified in the masterplan have already commenced with upgrades to Parry Park sportsgrounds. The play space is the next project to be realised.

This proposal

Council has prepared a draft concept design for Parry Park Play Space. The play space will include opportunities for all residents, visitors and age groups to engage and play in their own way. From our earlier engagement in the Park, you have told us the play space should:

  • Be a family-friendly space with seats, tables and picnic shelters,
  • Provide a range of play experiences including chill out zones,
  • Have water and sand play;
  • Provide bike paths and kick around areas,
  • Feel safe for all users.

We asked you to submit your comments and feedback on the concepts so as to assist us in the development of the concept design of the Parry park Play Space.

The exhibition period for this community consultation for Parry Park Playspace is now closed. Feedback and comments closed 12 midnight on Wednesday 13 May 2020.

Thank you to all those who have provided their feedback. Submissions are now closed and under review with Council.

If you have any questions or to discuss this project, please contact Nina Kierath on 9707 9000 or the Engagement team on 9707 5902.

Background and masterplan engagement

Consultation for masterplan has concluded.

The community provided feedback on the future of a major precinct in Canterbury-Bankstown.

A master plan for Parry Park, in Lakemba is now adopted.

Parry Park is a highly accessible and functional open space precinct. Council’s Open Space Strategy and Open Space Needs Review has identified a significant gap in open space in the Lakemba area.

It is hoped that the masterplan will enable Parry Park to become a major recreation destination and sports hub enabling approximately 30,000 community members who would use the area.

The draft plan is on Public Exhibition until the close of business Tuesday 27 February 2018.

Four community consultation sessions were hosted on:

  • Saturday 10 February (9.30am-12.30pm) at Parry Park (next to Lakemba Sports Club – central building opposite Colin Street)
  • Monday 12 February (5.30-7pm) at Parry Park (next to Lakemba Sports Club – central building opposite Colin Street)
  • Tuesday 13 February (3-6pm) at Lakemba Station (northern station entrance on Railway Parade)
  • Saturday 17 February (10am-noon) at Greenacre Town Centre (McGuigan Place playground at 154 Waterloo Road, Greenacre)
