The new, city-wide voice for public green space and parks, Greater Sydney Parklands brings together some of Sydney’s most iconic places: Centennial Parklands (including Moore Park and Queens Park), Western Sydney Parklands, Parramatta Park, Callan Park and Fernhill Estate.
Combined, Greater Sydney Parklands oversees more than 6,000 hectares of parklands across Sydney and hosts over 40 million visits each year.
The priority for Greater Sydney Parklands is to develop new ways to involve Sydneysiders in meeting local community needs, and to expand and improve public green space and parklands, to reinforce Sydney’s global reputation as a “City in a Park”.
In partnership with communities, state and federal government agencies, and local councils, it will champion the NSW Government’s new 50-Year Vision for Greater Sydney’s Open Space and Parklands.
Meanwhile, each individual park trust remains in place, along with related legislation, heritage listings and plans of management. These are overseen by a consolidated board and managed by each park’s experienced and dedicated staff. The combined expertise of these public parklands professionals has enabled Greater Sydney Parklands to deliver a number of key milestones since its inception in October 2020.
