The Future of Marrickville Park


Since 2012 Council has been seeking feedback from the community and stakeholders to find out how Marrickville Park was being used, what the future needs are and how best to deliver services and facilities to meet these needs.

This feedback has been used to develop a Draft Master Plan and Draft Plan of Management which will guide the park’s use and future improvements over the next 10 years.

Have your say

We’d now like to hear from you again before we adopt the plans. This will make sure that the park meets the needs of the community now and in the future.

Complete the form below to tell us whether you support the draft plans and provide any comments you may have. Submissions are invited on the plans until Tuesday 23 June 2015.

Community information session

Talk to Council Officers about the plans and complete a submission at the community information session.

Wednesday 3 June 2015 – drop in anytime between 5 and 7pm at the Tennis Clubhouse on Livingstone Road, Marrickville.

Public Hearing

The draft plans propose the re-categorisation of areas in Marrickville Park. This requires a public hearing to provide opportunity for community input. The proposed categorisation allows the continuation of existing leased areas and will provide greater flexibility to provide a variety of activities, leases and licences in the future. Anyone can attend the public hearing which will be held on Wednesday at 6pm on 27 May 2015 at 2-4 Fisher Street Petersham.

What happens next?

Following the public exhibition process, the community’s feedback will be collated and reported to Council recommending any appropriate changes and adoption of the plans.

Upcoming works at Marrickville Park

The sports oval performs an important flood management function. Recent legislative changes require the wall around the southern side of the sports oval to be strengthened. These works are scheduled to commence in June 2015.

Following community feedback on safety concerns, the gate on Porter Avenue will be locked to vehicles other than for maintenance, emergencies and deliveries.
