Sydney Real Estate Owners Encouraged To Have Their Say on Parkland

Sydney real estate owners, as well as those who rent property in central communities in the NSW capital, are being invited to have their say on a new parklands development project, which is set to offer year-round access to green spaces to local residents.

New plans spearheaded by Sydney City Council would link the Johnstons Creek parklands with other green spaces in a stretch that could extend from Glebe to Annandale.

According to the local authority, these proposed parklands would together form the longest connected open green space in Sydney, featuring recreation areas, walkways, woodlands and wetlands.

"Our growing population in the inner city needs significant green open spaces. These spaces provide opportunities for exercise and activity – somewhere to walk the dogs and a haven to take some peaceful time out," said City of Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore.

Plans for the proposed development will be discussed over the weekend when City of Sydney staff carry out walking tours to show the public where the green areas could be created. This is an excellent opportunity for real estate owners to ask questions about the proposed project, or simply to spend a bit of time outside with your family.

Marquees will be set up at two locations to accommodate the walking tours – the playground in Annandale's Federal Park and in Bicentennial Park in Glebe.
