Communities in Sydney’s west can provide further input to the creation of a new park and public space in Leppington as part of the Parks For People program.
The draft concept design for the new park in Leppington on Camden Valley Way, opposite the Forest Lawn Memorial Park, is now open for review and public feedback.
Through the Phase 1 Community Engagement online, it is significant that 177 community members from 30 different cultural backgrounds helped create a clear vision for the new park. Their main priorities were:
- a space that helps people become healthier and happier;
- a place that enables play and activity, brings people together, and creates a sense of calm.
Peter Sidgreaves, Member for Camden, said the community responded to the first round of engagement in October 2020 by sharing their vision for the new park, which has helped shape its draft concept design.
“The people of Leppington, Austral, Edmondson Park and surrounding suburbs will be the custodians and beneficiaries of this wonderful new park so they should be involved in its creation,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
“It’s now time to consider the draft concept design and allow people to have their say on potential design features for an incredible public space.”
The draft concept design is now available on the Department’s social pinpoint digital engagement platform. Construction is expected to commence in late-2021 with work scheduled to be completed in 2022. CLICK HERE for more details.
Parks For People is an initiative of the NSW Government’s $150 million Strategic Open Spaces program.
