Dence Park Masterplan

(Back to top)

City of Parramatta Council received feedback from the community in 2018–2019, and we have prepared a Dence Park Masterplan, which was endorsed in December 2019. 

In April 2020, Council endorsed the Dence Park Masterplan Implementation Plan.

The aim of the implementation plan is to provide a clear and strict cost-controlled method for Council to develop the high level master plan into detailed design for tender and construction.
