Charles Street Square
City of Parramatta Council is preparing concept designs to transform Charles Street Square at Parramatta Quay, one of a number of planned foreshore improvement projects that will strengthen the connection between our city and its river.
The project will bring to life Charles Street Square, attract more visitors to the Parramatta Quay precinct, and create a memorable experience at one of the major gateways to our city.
The Charles Street Square project will resolve some of the issues identified through earlier stakeholder and community engagement. This improved urban design will provide a more attractive, accessible and useable public space. The Charles Street Square project will also complement the NSW Government’s upgrade of the ferry wharf to create a vibrant meeting place for visitors and our community.
- March - April 2019 - Site investigations, stakeholder consultations and concept development
- Mid 2019 - Stakeholder and community engagement and public exhibition of concept designs
- Early 2020 - Design approvals and tender
- Mid 2020 - 2021 Construction.
Where can I get more information?
City of Parramatta plans to work closely with owners, residents and businesses in the Charles Street Square precinct to create a place of special character. As the project design takes shape there will be opportunities to provide feedback.

From March 2019, City of Parramatta and its consultants will begin early site investigations and environmental studies in and around Charles Street Square.
