Parry Park to take shape

Parry Park to take shape Transforming Lakemba’s Parry Park into a thriving, vibrant and connected sporting and leisure hub is one step closer, with the master plan given the green light at the last Council meeting. Yes  

Transforming Lakemba’s Parry Park into a thriving, vibrant and connected sporting and leisure hub is one step closer, with the master plan given the green light during this week’s Council Meeting.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, said the project was long overdue and timely, considering the deficit of open space in the area.

"As we’re infinitely aware by now, our City is lacking in open space," Mayor Asfour said.

"That is why we need to undertake improvements to address this issue, so that we can provide a precinct that is more accessible and people friendly in the future."

Mayor Asfour said there was no better time to undertake a project of this magnitude.

"Our Canterbury Open Space Strategy and Needs Review identified a significant gap in open space in Lakemba, and also recognised the potential for the park to be a major recreation destination and sports hub, which is exactly what it will be once we’re done," Mayor Asfour said.

Mayor Asfour reiterated additional amenities would make the park bigger and better for all to enjoy.

In the future, Parry Park will boast a new playground, picnic area and exercise equipment, as well as extra walking and cycling paths, an events precinct with parking improvements to existing sporting fields, extra community facilities and street parking.

The first stages of the park upgrade will include:

  • Delivering a new children’s playground through Stronger Communities funding;
  • Renovating the sportsfield;
  • Designing a creek to flow through Parry Park; and
  • Upgrading Koala Road, Lakemba.
