New open space for Inner West

Following years of advocacy from Council and the community, the current NSW Government has agreed to provide an additional $20 million to Inner West Council to address deficiencies in facilities and amenities at the Rozelle Parklands.

This is a big win for our community.

The Masterplan will consider how the Parklands can be improved over time and where sport and recreational facilities that were deleted from the final plans can be delivered within the parklands or at nearby locations.

This will include an all-weather sporting field, public carparking to relieve pressure on local streets, multi-purpose sports courts and cycling and active transport links around the Parklands.

Additionally in response to Council’s advocacy, the NSW Government has committed to delivering additional facilities within the parkland from March 2024:

  • Public toilets adjacent to the children’s play area
  • Sporting ground changing rooms, a kiosk and amenities
  • Floodlighting for sports training for the two new sporting grounds
  • Provision of two multipurpose ball courts for basketball and netball

Council is creating Plan of Management and revising the Rozelle Parklands Masterplan to plan for the future of this important new green space.
