We are developing a plan of management for pocket and neighbourhood parks in the Inner West Council area. We would like you to help us plan the future use of those valuable community resources.



Overview

We recognise the importance of quality open space in making high density urban areas attractive and liveable. The Inner West Council area has an established and well distributed network of neighbourhood and pocket parks. The ability of Council to expand open space is limited by land supply and budget constraints. Council, therefore focuses its investment on improving the existing network of open spaces.
