Last year Council installed shade sails at 13 parks across the Inner West to make sure playgrounds can be enjoyed year-round, especially in the warmer weather. Now we’re continuing the program with a proposal to install nine shade sails in parks across three Council wards.

This financial year we are spending $275,000 to install shade sails in parks across three Council wards. The shade sails will provide shade over playgrounds to promote a healthier lifestyle and create a safe play environment. The proposed sites are:

Ashfield Ward - Djarrawunang

  • Carrington Street Playground, Summer Hill
  • John Paton Reserve, Short Street, Summer Hill

Stanmore Ward – Damun

  • Brighton Street Park, Petersham
  • Matt Hogan Reserve, Camden Street, Newtown
  • Salmon Playground, Station Street, Newtown

Marrickville Ward - Midjuburi

  • Louisa Lawson Reserve, Roach Road, Marrickville
  • Ness Park, Hollands Ave, Marrickville
  • Tempe Reserve, Holbeach Avenue, Tempe
  • Wicks Park, Victoria Road, Marrickville
