What is happening now?

The feedback we received has been used to develop a draft Plan of Management (POM) and a Master Plan.

The Plan of Management covers leases, licences and use of the land

The Master Plan outlines a vision and actions for improvement over ten years

The Master Plan has two options for the future use of Marrickville Parklands including golf course.

  • Option A: Maintain the golf course at 18 holes with upgraded parklands.
  • Option B: After five years transform the course to 9 holes with upgraded parklands and additional community open space. This is the recommended option in the draft Plan of Management.

View the draft plans and the two Master Plan options.

Additional Option

Option C: No changes are made to the 18 hole golf course on Marrickville Parklands; full ecological restoration of the Dibble Avenue Waterhole; and Marrickville Golf Club to find alternative sources of irrigation.
