Work to start on Parry Park upgrade

Work is set to begin on the transformation of Parry Park at Lakemba, later this month.

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has committed to upgrading the four major playing fields, which covers a large 31,000 square metres. This includes:

  • Upgrading irrigation and drainage systems;
  • Re-levelling; and
  • Returfing.

Mayor Khal Asfour said this is the first stage of work following the community’s support of the Parry Park masterplan.

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

"Residents also told us they want accessible parks and open spaces, catering for all ages.

"Following the completion of stage one at Parry Park, we are looking to install a new accessible playground, designing a creek to flow through the park, and upgrading Koala Road."

Council is currently investigating additional upgrades to Parry Park, which may include:

  • Development of a picnic area;
  • Installation of exercise equipment;
  • Construction of more walking and cycling paths;
  • Development of an events precinct, with parking improvements;
  • Construction of extra community facilities; and
  • More street parking.

Council has recently undertaken a number of initiatives, to improve the City’s play spaces and sporting fields. These include: 

  • The development of a Playground and Play Spaces Strategic Plan, which will guide the provision, development and establishment of playgrounds, to ensure a fairer distribution of playgrounds in Canterbury-Bankstown (it can be found at cb.city/playgroundstrategy);
  • The opening of the City’s first all-abilities playground at Bankstown City Gardens; and
  • The upgrading of a number of reserves, parks, playgrounds and play spaces across Canterbury-Bankstown, such as:
    • Bennett Park, Roselands;
    • Waterworth Park, Earlwood;
    • Clemton Park, Kingsgrove;
    • Roberts Park, Greenacre;
    • Kinch Reserve, Condell Park; and
    • Amour Park, Revesby.
