Carrawood Park final design
We are excited to be working closely with Fairfield City Council to improve the much-loved Carrawood Park. Construction for Carrawood Park is expected to commence in early 2022, and completed mid 2022.
Following two rounds of community engagement, site studies, technical investigations and design work, the final design for Carrawood Park is now complete and available to view here:
About the new Park
Carrawood Park is located in Carramar, a diverse and vibrant suburb in the Fairfield City Council Local Government Area. It is currently used for a wide range of recreational activities and is a special place for the local community.
The upgraded Carrawood Park will support the health and wellbeing of the community, for all to enjoy. The aim is to create a relaxing and peaceful experience, promoting a range of activities and play for locals and visitors.
The centrepiece of the park will be the new inclusive ‘Big Bass’ playspace. Inspired by the site’s Prospect Creek location, this unique play space will encourage play for all ages and abilities following the Department’s Everyone Can Play guidelines.
Preserving the natural setting and unique assets of the woodland and creek is also a key element of the approach. The park’s stretches of Cumberland Plain Woodlands have inspired new tree planting along major pathways and at the main hubs of activity. This will help create cooler, natural corridors for people to rest and relax as well as improving local ecology.
Importantly, the design encourages gathering and coming together to celebrate and learn about Aboriginal culture and the diverse, vibrant and growing community of Carramar.
Underpinning the design is the community’s desire for more accessible spaces and opportunities for cultural exchange and learning, particularly from the traditional custodians of the land.
