Have your say on future of Wiley Park

Residents can have their say on a bold new vision, to help guide the upgrading of Wiley Park over the next 20 years.

Key aspects of the proposal are:

  • Redeveloping the park to improve accessibility, shade and toilets;
  • Building a new large (destination) playground, with inclusive play elements, water play and climbing structure;
  • Installing shelters, picnic facilities, exercise equipment, half courts and improved fields;
  • Improving access and function of the amphitheatre and building;
  • Extending and creating a new pathway network around and through the park, along with new seating, lighting, signage and drinking fountains;
  • Restoring the ponds and improving water quality; and
  • Rehabilitating the existing grove of native trees and planting new native plants, to provide a green buffer to Canterbury Road.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the masterplan would be transformative for the east of the City.

"Wiley Park is an extremely important open space in the Wiley Park and Lakemba areas, because it’s the only large park in the two suburbs," Mayor Asfour said.

"This masterplan aims to create a place that provides a diversity of public uses, including passive recreation, active recreation, playspaces, a cultural community performance space and improved amenity.

"Community feedback played an important part in developing this draft plan. They said they wanted us to focus on creating a connected park, a community park, a healthy park and a park that celebrates water, and I think we’ve incorporated their vision into this plan."

To view the draft masterplan and provide feedback, visit Two community consultation sessions will be held at the park on Saturday 18 May (11am-2pm) and Tuesday 21 May (3-5.30pm).

A park that is already well underway to being transformed is Ewen Park, with Council overnight giving the green light to proceed with detailed designs for:

  • Lang Road Bridge, including a kayak launch area;
  • Construction of a pathway from Younger Parade to Lang Road; and
  • An outdoor education and community meeting space at Hurlstone Park Memorial Reserve.
