About the project

The Department of Planning and Environment approved the rezoning of the Wentworth Point Priority Precinct at the northern end of Wentworth Point in 2014. This included plans for housing, a new school, and a park for the growing local community.

Landcom managed the sale and subdivision of land owned by Roads and Maritime Services on Hill Road to the private sector.

On behalf of Roads and Maritime Services, Landcom is now delivering Wentworth Point Park, and surrounding infrastructure to support ongoing development works. Works commenced in early 2019 and are expected to continue until 2021. 

The park will benefit the community by:

  • providing a number of new community facilities, including shelters, barbeque facilities, fitness stations and an all abilities playground, highlighting our commitment to provide inclusive places for the whole community
  • incorporating water sensitive urban design principles to treat and reuse water on site and reduce pollutants entering Parramatta River.

Current works

Earthworks for the first stage of the new park is well underway, with over 10,000m3 of soil delivered to site so far. This soil will raise the land to match the level of the adjacent school and provide the base from which an extension to Ridge Road and the park will be built.

We have installed temporary fencing and erected hoarding around most of the site. The hoarding showcases artworks created by Wentworth Point Primary School students highlighting the value of parks and play spaces in urban communities. Work is continuing to design public art which will depict student’s ideas from workshops we ran in partnership with the school in late 2018.

All works are being managed to minimise impacts on the school and nearby residents. Dust and air quality monitors are in place.

Previous consultation

On 17 November 2018, we held an information session to give the community an opportunity to view the final designs for the park and to provide an update about the works program. Around 35 people attended the session.

On 28 July 2018, we held an information session to give the community an opportunity to view the plans for the new park and give feedback to inform the detailed design.

Around 60 people attended the session. Boards with information about the park were on display and members of the project team were available to answer questions and hear feedback.
