Wide open spaces for Glebe

Glebe Town Hall's restoration is nearly complete, and there will be a public opening in the near future

The $10 million restoration of this significant heritage building has revealed some intricate decoration and interiors hidden under years of paint and dirt. The extensive renovation included new lifts and better access and LED lighting to reduce energy use.

The final stage of the Glebe Foreshore Walk will commence later this year to connect Wentworth Park with the rest of Glebe. When completed, the foreshore walk will allow people to go from Camperdown to Forest Lodge and Glebe, on to Ultimo and Pyrmont and into the CBD.

At the end of last year Mirvac began the Harold Park site. This redevelopment will provide new housing close to the city centre and is linked to local shops, schools and parks by two kilometres of paths for walking and bike riding.

Harold Park is well served by light rail and the Planning Minister has also committed to working with the Transport Minister to improve transport in the area as the site is developed.

More than one-third of formerly private land, totalling 3.8 hectares, will become public open space, with new parks and a variety of landscaped open spaces.

We have been working closely with residents in the area to create the new draft Johnstons Creek Parkland Master Plan - which will go on public exhibition in April. This work will help us integrate the new open space at Harold Park with Federal, Jubilee and Bicentennial Parks.
