Charles Street Square Upgrade
Charles Street Square, adjacent to the Ferry Wharf at Parramatta Quay, is the place where people travelling along the Parramatta River arrive at our city. It’s a gathering place for locals and visitors and has been that way for thousands of years.
The City of Parramatta has developed a draft concept design for the Charles Street Square upgrade that draws inspiration from the curved geometry of the river, the surrounding landscape, and the site’s unique history. The upgrade features new ramps and stairs, a wide riverfront walk, flood-resilient and sustainable design elements, and more trees for shade and a parkland experience.
Plans for the Charles Street Square upgrade are on exhibition from 25 February 2020 to 16 March 2020. Visit City of Parramatta Council’s community engagement portal Our Say to have your say. For more information, contact the Charles Street Square project team by calling the City of Parramatta on 1300 617 058 or email CharlesStSquare@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au.
Anticipated for completion in 2022, proposed upgrades to Charles Street Square are part of significant ongoing investment in the transformation of the Parramatta City River Foreshore. Along with the Escarpment Boardwalk, these projects will create an accessible, green, and vibrant foreshore that is connected to our City.
