The leafy park on Joynton Avenue is now home to barbecue facilities, a large lawn area, two new playgrounds, a water play zone, timber boardwalks and new landscaping.
The open space has been expanded to 7,000 square metres – more than a full-sized football field – following the addition of a former laneway and land handed over by private developer Lateral Estate in an agreement with the City of Sydney. The park previously measured 2,700sqm.
“I’m delighted to open this great new park which more than doubles the size of the park that’s long been here,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
“I know the local community will be thrilled to have such a well-designed place to enjoy the outdoors.
“This is one of more than 20 great new parks we are delivering for the rapidly growing Green Square community.
The Lord Mayor officially opened the space last week with children’s activities and a roving band adding to the celebrations.
