Parramatta City River Strategy

Front cover of Parramatta River City Strategy with Parramatta NYE

The Parramatta City River Strategy is a plan for revitalising the foreshore of the Parramatta River between Gasworks Bridge and Rings Bridge, O’Connell Street.

It aims to improve connections between the river and the city and create more recreational opportunities for city residents, workers and visitors. This includes better spaces for walking, cycling, picnicking and for hosting major city events by the river such as New Year’s Eve and Loy Krathong.

The strategy creates a new vision for the area and reclaims the river and its foreshore as a vibrant public space for the city.
