Project updates

Project details

We have developed a proposed Plan of Management and Master Plan for Dulwich Hill Parklands (includes: Laxton Reserve, Arlington Reserve, Johnson Park and Hoskins Park).


In late 2016, we asked the community how they use the parks now and how they would like to use them into the future. Around that time the former Ashfield, Marrickville and Leichhardt Councils amalgamated to from Inner West Council. Unfortunately developing the Dulwich Hill Parks Plan of Management has taken longer than we would usually expect.

The proposed Dulwich Hill Parklands Plan of Management (POM) and Master Plan have been developed using that community feedback along with research and expert advice.

We are required to have Plans of Management for all community land in the Inner West. In November 2018, Council adopted an Inner West Open Space areas Plans of Management Priority List.

What is happening now?

We have developed a proposed Plan of Management and Master Plan and want to know what you think about it.

  • Read the Plan of Management PDF which covers the planning, use and management of the parks over the next 10 years and includes leases and licences.
  • Read the Master Plan PDF which outlines a vision and actions for improvement over the next 10 years.

The last day to provide feedback is Thursday, 5 December 2019

What happens next?

After the engagement period, the Parks Planning team will review and consider community feedback before finalising the plans. The draft will then be considered by Council for adoption,

Part of the Dulwich Hill Parklands is owned by the NSW Government and requires a land categorisation. This land is managed by Council for community benefit, however we require the NSW Government to approve our categories before the Plan of Management is finalised.
