A number of parks and precincts in Canterbury-Bankstown are one-step closer to undergoing
major improvements, with Council overnight approving plans to help guide future
The Plan of Management (PoM) for Deepwater Park and Kelso Parklands drew significant
community interest, with more than 100 submissions received.
Mayor Khal Asfour said a major element of the PoM was determining the future use of the
former Panania Bowling Club site.
"The PoM will see a change in the land categorisation from ‘sportsground’ to ‘general
community use’,” he said.
“This will allow for a broader range of community-based activities, unlike before when it was specifically just for sporting uses, and enable us to seek expressions of interest (EOI).”
The PoM covers seven recreational areas - Deepwater Park, Kelso Park (north), Kelso Park
(south), Marco Reserve, Kelso Beach Reserve, Killara Reserve and Horsley Reserve.
The next steps include an EOI process conducted for the former bowling club site, and
additional planning for sporting field layouts at Kelso Park and Marco Reserve.
Mayor Asfour said there were also plans for Belmore Sports and Recreation Precinct.
“This is a 20-year plan for the future of the Belmore Sports Facility Review,” he said.
“It’s clear from the submissions received, the community’s vision is to transform the heart of
Belmore, with the park opening up to the neighbourhood, with space for people to play, relax
and celebrate not only on NRL game day, but every day.”
