The Picton Botanic Gardens has a spanking new outdoor stage, now available for hire to host events, concerts, and screenings, enhancing community engagement.

“This outdoor performance stage, big screen and seating is a fantastic new addition to the Botanic Gardens,” said Mayor of Wollondilly Matt Gould, inaugurating the Outdoor Performance Stage along with Member for Campbelltown Greg Warren, representing Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Paul Scully.

Also present were Member for Wollondilly Judy Hannan, Deputy Mayor Matthew Deeth, Cr Suzy Brandstater, Cr Hilton Gibbs, CEO Ben Taylor, and staff.

This project, co-funded by the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program, aims to meet community needs for public spaces.

Minister Scully emphasized the importance of such spaces for growing communities like Wollondilly and highlighted the stage’s accessibility and upcoming amenities.

“With a play space that is accessible to all and further amenities to be built later in the year, I am excited to see how this space is used by the community.” Mr Scully said.

Mr. Warren envisioned the stage will soon become a hub for local creativity and entertainment.

The stage is located at the Picton Botanic Gardens at the end of the Avenue of Trees and is now open for casual hire by community groups and residents to use for private events.
