civic link framework plan
The Civic Link will be a green, pedestrianised public space and cultural spine that connects public life from the heart of Parramatta CBD to the River.
It will respond to the environmental challenges of an urban, river city as well as to the City’s rich and vibrant history, expressive of and welcoming to people and place; past, present and future.
The Civic Link Framework Plan sets out the vision for the Civic Link, which extends across four city blocks through the heart of the Parramatta CBD, connecting Parramatta Square and the transport interchange to River Square, the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) and the broader foreshore precinct. This strategic document establishes the long term aspiration, strategies, design ideas and recommendations that will define the new pedestrian spine and allow an arts and cultural precinct to flourish within it, with spaces for local businesses, small bars and cafes, makers and collaborators.
