​The local community is being encouraged to provide feedback on the future of two major parks in the eastern suburbs of Canterbury-Bankstown.

Masterplans for Gough Whitlam and Waterworth Parks, in Earlwood, are set to go on public exhibition next month.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator, Richard Colley, said the locations are among the most popular of the 550 parks Council looks after.

“We want to upgrade the facilities and provide what the community actually wants and needs,” Mr Colley said.

In December last year, the former Canterbury Council appointed external consultants to complete a Plan of Management (POM) for both parks, requesting it includes an archery range, bike recreation facility and additional soccer fields However, Mr Colley said no final decision will be made until the community is given the chance to provide its feedback.

“I encourage residents, including athletes who use the playing facilities, sporting organisations, and parents of young families, to comment on what they would like to see incorporated in the final masterplans,” Mr Colley said.

“We want this park to be driven by the community for the community.”

The masterplans propose:

  • Car parking improvements;
  • An amenities upgrade:
  • Changes to the positioning of playing fields to enable more sporting codes to use them;
  • Improved lighting, landscaping and tree planting; and
  • The construction of new paths.

The Gough Whitlam Park and Waterworth Park masterplans will be exhibited early next year.

Council is also set to develop a site-specific masterplan for Parry Park at Lakemba.​
