Project updates

Project details

King George Park is one of the Inner West’s most popular sporting grounds used throughout the year by thousands of locals taking part in organised soccer, rugby league or little athletics. It is loved by the broader community for recreational use as part of the Bay Run.

It is time to plan for its future.

In November 2020 we sought community input on how to care for and manage King George Park over the next 10 years. That feedback has been combined with expert advice and other information in the draft Plan of Management (POM) and Master Plan. The drafts are now on public exhibition for review - did we capture your ideas?

  • Upgrade playground
  • Upgrade seating and BBQs
  • New pavilion for sports equipment storage
  • Resurface sporting ground with natural turf and improve drainage
  • Upgrade sporting ground flood lights to meet Australian Standards
  • Formalise car parking spaces for safety and efficiency
  • Investigate adaptive reuse of the heritage listed former pumping station into a café

There are two ways you can inspect the documents during public exhibition:
1. Download a copy - See Documents (on the right)
2. Contact Mandy Smith to request a paper copy posted to your address.

The last day to provide feedback is Thursday, 7 October 2021.

All feedback will be reviewed. Changes to the Draft Plan of Management and Masterplan will be made where possible before reporting back to the Elected Council for endorsement Part of King George Park is owned by the State Government. Their approval of the POM is required before Council puts the plan on public exhibition one more time.
