Park and reserve masterplans

Rydalmere Park masterplan

Rydalmere Park is an important community asset, located at a strategic position within the eastern central precinct of Parramatta Local Government Area.

The site encompasses 6.4 hectares of open space and associated facilities, including sports fields, playground, courts, and a former bowling club.

Following extensive community and stakeholder consultation, an analysis of recreation trends, and a thorough investigation of the physical condition of the site, a new masterplan was developed for Rydalmere Park.

The masterplan is designed to bring the “Park” back into Rydalmere Park. Its vision is to create a memorable park experience and destination that fulfils the needs of the growing community for open space and recreation.

The masterplan includes:

  • Enhance sporting infrastructure to meet current and future needs, including a synthetic field to meet Football NSW National Premier League requirements
  • Creative use of the former Bowling Club site for multiple community, recreational, sporting and social purposes
  • Increased vegetation, shade, shelter and seating to reinforce the park setting and create shade and amenity
  • Improved connectivity across the site, including formalised north/south access
  • Upgraded informal recreation spaces, e.g. playground, multipurpose court and circuit path
  • Maintenance of the existing amenities building.
