Consultation has concluded

Over the coming 20 years, the number of jobs, students and residents in Bankstown CBD is expected to double, putting more demand on our parks, streets and cultural facilities – including Paul Keating Park.

Council is preparing a master plan to create a vision for Paul Keating Park and guide its development as Bankstown’s premier shared public space over the next 20 years.

The master plan is a high level document that will inform future public domain capital works. It will aim to improve on what’s currently working and incorporate community insights to create a welcoming, diverse and inclusive space for all.

We want the project to be informed by community requirements and aspirations for Paul Keating Park, so we’re creating ways to speak to the huge range of community groups, residents and local property owners who care about the park.

What is the study area and where is Paul Keating Park?

Paul Keating Park Precinct is the centrepiece of Bankstown’s civic area. It is located in the heart of the northern CBD and includes:

  • the award-winning Bankstown Learning and Knowledge Centre (BLaKC) designed by FJMT Architects;
  • Council Civic Tower;
  • the future Western Sydney University (WSU) site;
  • Thurlow Fisher House (69 The Mall);
  • HOYTS cinema; and
  • Bankstown Court reserve.

The grey dashed line indicates the study area. Existing buildings are not included in this project.

How can you be involved?

We asked you for your ideas and feedback to ensure meaningful input into the vision and principles which will guide the master plan. We aim to recognise how you celebrate your culture and how Paul Keating Park can continue to bring people together.
