Parks of Parramatta

Following the wetter than predicted Christmas holiday period many parks, reserves and passive areas have become overgrown. All locations have now been inspected and sites have been prioritised. The Parks Operations team have been operating with reduced staff throughout January and have in a number of instances been redirected to emergencies - for example a large clean-up exercise following heavy flooding along the Parramatta River, which has caused further delays. We anticipate that all locations will be serviced within 4 weeks from Monday 22nd January 2024, subject to site conditions. We thank you for your understanding and patience.

 

City of Parramatta has over 300 beautiful and diverse parks and reserves for residents, visitors and workers to enjoy.

These open spaces offer a variety of opportunities for active and passive recreational activities for all ages. Many of our parks include barbecues, picnic facilities, playgrounds, water play, dog off-leash areas and outdoor exercise equipment. 

 

 

Park Upgrades

 

Our Parks and Open Space team are committed to delivering world-class facilities for the community. A number of parks and reserves have been upgraded with new facilities, repairs, additional parking and amenities. There is also many more that are listed for future upgrades.

 

Temporary Vehicle Access

 

Council may permit temporary vehicle access through parks and reserves for non-recreational purposes for works within or associated with adjoining properties. All temporary vehicle access within parks and reserves is subject to Council approval, with all requests subject to individual assessment. 

 

Park and reserve committees

 

City of Parramatta encourages community participation in the development and management of our parks and reserves through our voluntary park and reserve committees. We currently have about 20 committees appointed by the City of Parramatta to assist in the care, maintenance, management and development of parks and reserves in accordance with the provisions of Sections 355 and 377 of the Local Government Act 1993.
