Garraway Park, Rosebery

Consultation has concluded

Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback on the concept design for Garraway Park, a new local park at Rosebery. The City received submissions and feedback in person at our Have Your Say Day at East Village Shopping Centre in May 2016.

For Garraway Park, at more than 8,000 sq metres, people were very excited about a new kick about area, sports field and play equipment. A circulation path and children’s bicycle loop was another popular part of the design.

All of the feedback received will be considered by the City and will inform the next stage of design development.

We’ve had lots of feedback about places to play sport, and skate, which is also being considered as part of our park design and future planning for the area.

We’ll keep you posted on the progress of these parks, which will be constructed as part of Voluntary Planning Agreements with private developments.

About Garraway Park
The site is a former industrial estate and on completion will be a residential neighbourhood in the North Rosebery precinct of Green Square.

The proposed 8,000 square metre park will be framed by four new streets and located within two privately owned sites, which is currently under development. The park will be located at sites 67-77 Epsom Road and 87-103 Epsom Road.

Garraway Park is planned to provide active and passive recreation; and play and community uses. It will have the following facilities:
  • A large playing field and events space;
  • An informal kick-about space;
  • Circulation path for casual walking and learn to ride children’s bicycle loop;
  • Children’s play spaces and water play;
  • Public art;
  • Practice netball ring;
  • Barbeque facilities;
  • Shade structures;
  • Social seating areas;
  • An amenities block with public toilets;
  • Fitness stations; and
  • Water Sensitive Urban Design initiatives.
The park design has been developed to reveal and foster a greater understanding of the site’s past uses, geography and heritage.

The design references the sand dudes of the Waterloo swamp and the site’s rich 1920’s industrial heritage. Garraway Park is named after the Gadigal language word for sulphur-crested cockatoo which inhabited the area.
