50-Year Vision for Greater Sydney Parklands
The final 50-Year Vision for Greater Sydney's Open Space and Parklands (PDF 3.2MB) imagines the future of Greater Sydney’s numerous and diverse outdoor spaces and parklands.
The then NSW Minister for Planning and Public Spaces announced the final 50-Year Vision for Greater Sydney's Open Space and Parklands on 24 May 2021 after consultation with the community.
Greater Sydney’s abundance of parklands is a legacy of good decision making over many years and we are building on that legacy, creating a city in a park.

The Trust is responsible for protecting our existing parklands, while also establishing new parklands to realise the 50-Year vision for Greater Sydney to become a ‘city within a park’.
