The NSW Government has announced the 50-Year Vision for Sydney’s Open Space and Parklands. The draft vision will kickstart a community wide conversation about how our open and public spaces can grow with us.
Now is the time to be forward thinking about your aspirations for open spaces and parklands for the next 50 years. Greater Sydney’s abundance of open space and parklands is a legacy of good decision making over many years.
Public space is critical to the health, wellbeing and liveability of our communities, providing areas for recreation, visual amenity and access to nature, as well as supporting green jobs and local economies.
If you want a city with greener streets, higher quality parklands and more green connections that support healthy people and communities, we need to create an aspirational shared vision and start making it happen.
The first step has been taken to support the final vision by establishing a Greater Sydney Parklands agency. The agency will manage existing and potential new state government owned open spaces and parklands across Greater Sydney. It will bring together the city’s iconic park Trusts – Centennial Parklands, Parramatta Park and Western Sydney Parklands – and manage other key sites – Callan Park and Fernhill.
