Situated in Budjar/Canterbury Ward, the project site is located on the western side of Bexley Road, Kingsgrove between the M5 motorway and Homer Street and includes:

  • The former Transport for NSW (TfNSW) works compound used for construction of the WestConnex M5 project; and
  • Beaumont Park, Kingsgrove.

Early consultation conducted by WestConnex for the development of the M5 Linear Park highlighted the community’s desire for informal, passive and low-key active recreation opportunities to enhance active uses and the recreational value of the park. Opportunities identified during the early engagement included ideas such as skate parks or basketball courts. Due to the proximity to residential properties and Bexley Road, Council are investigating alternative options for the site.

This proposal

Council are working with TfNSW to re-imagine the former works compound and transform it into an urban forest, with recreational infrastructure that will include (but not limited too) new landscaping, recreational elements and pathways.

In addition to this, we are proposing to deliver active play elements through the installation of fitness equipment in Beaumont Park, near the existing play equipment.

The key objectives of this proposal are to:

  • Provide residents of Kingsgrove and the surrounding suburbs with a new recreational space with accessible open space to walk, run, exercise and play; and
  • Enhance connectivity for residents and cyclists to the M5 shared pathway.

This proposal aligns with the recommendations of our Playground and Play Spaces Strategic Plan which guides our efforts to increase and broaden the activity opportunities of existing playgrounds and play areas.

We are now seeking your comments / feedback on the concept design detail below.
