Dence Park Masterplan

The City of Parramatta is continuing to develop a Masterplan to improve the quality of Dence Park’s facilities and open space.

We understand how important Dence Park is to the Epping community and we want to make it even better.

Using what we’ve heard from the community over the past 12 months, Council has prepared a draft Dence Park Masterplan, which is now on public exhibition for review and feedback.

Read the full masterplan document.

The Masterplan identifies upgrades for the Epping Creative Centre, Epping Aquatic Centre and surrounding green and open space. It will guide improvement of the whole park so it better responds to your needs and the needs of the future community.

About Dence Park 

Dence Park comprises around 5ha of land at Stanley Road, Epping. Located within a bushland setting, the site currently includes the Epping Aquatic Centre, Epping Creative Centre and a park area.

Community Input

The Dence Park Masterplan is being developed in consultation with the community:

  • In October and November 2018, we asked the community their ideas for a vision for Dence Park. A summary of the feedback is now available. See Summary of Consultation Stage 1.
  • Using the feedback we received last year, Council developed a draft direction for the Dence Park Masterplan. In January and February 2019, we asked the community to provide their feedback on this draft direction.
  • Using all feedback received in 2018 and early 2019, Council developed a proposed layout for the Dence Park Masterplan, including locations for upgrades to the Epping Creative Centre, Epping Aquatic Centre, and surrounding green and open space. In June and July 2019, Council sought community and stakeholder feedback to confirm proposed upgrades for each area of the site and understand priorities for delivery.

All feedback received so far has been used to develop a final draft of the Masterplan, which is now on public exhibition and includes a summary of what we’ve heard from the community over the past year.
