I encourage you to join me at Bicentennial Park, Glebe from 10am to 2pm on Saturday and help us shape the future of Harold Park.
The City is hosting a community event where residents can speak to the project team while enjoying a free BBQ and children's activities.
I will open the event at 10.30am and you will get the chance to have your say on plans for a major new public park on the former Harold Park site.
We have been working with the lead developer, Mirvac, to ensure more than one-third of Harold Park becomes open space with paths to connect neighbourhoods, new park furniture and public art.
We have secured nearly four hectares of previously private land to create a new green space for relaxing, playing and exercising.
As our city's population grows, space for inner-city dwellers and visitors to take time out from the pace of city life and relax in a beautiful, natural setting becomes more important than ever.
Our plans for Harold Park include:
- A series of open spaces and areas of habitat linked by the cliff line;
- Paths to connect neighbourhoods and parklands;
- Playgrounds, picnic areas and open grass spaces;
- Harvesting and treating stormwater;
- Historical interpretations and art opportunities; and
- Lighting and park furniture.
