​Work will start shortly on a new playground in Lakemba, in the next stage of improvements planned for Parry Park.

Overnight, the City of Canterbury Bankstown committed $1.5 million to the project.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the new accessible playground will be the largest construction project carried out in the City’s parks in 2019-20.

"It follows considerable public consultation, where resident feedback was used to determine what work will be undertaken," he said.

"More than 10,000 residents, businesses and community groups told us that promoting active lifestyles should be a priority in CBCity.

"Residents also told us they want accessible parks and open spaces, catering for all ages, and that’s what we’ll be delivering in Lakemba."

The start of the new playground follows the completion of work to upgrade four playing fields, covering 31,000 square metres at Parry Park, including:

  • New irrigation and drainage systems;
  • Field re-levelling; and
  • Returfing.

A total of $3.5 million has been allocated by Council to parks-related projects in 2019-20, as part of a record $100 million capital works program. Parry Park is among 8 locations where playgrounds will be installed or upgraded. Others include:

  • Mount Lewis Park, Mount Lewis;
  • Northcote Reserve, Greenacre;
  • Killara Reserve, Panania;
  • Garrison Point Reserve, Georges Hall;
  • Bazentin Street Reserve, Belfield;
  • Anne Pringle Reserve, Lakemba; and
  • Wagener Oval, Ashbury.

The sites listed will be upgraded in accordance with Council’s Playgrounds and Play Spaces Strategic Plan.
