Recreation Upgrades

Council is working with award-winning youth space and skate park design company, CONVIC, to design an exciting new mixed recreation space in Bennett Park, St Marys.

Key features of the new mixed recreation space will include:

  • skate spaces
  • pump track
  • climbing and obstacle-style equipment
  • social spaces
  • variety of play equipment and features for a range of age groups
  • multi-sport court
  • shade
  • pathways
  • toilet amenities
  • formalised car park, and
  • connections to existing infrastructure.

Following community consultation on the draft design in late 2022, the final design is being developed.

Construction is due to begin in 2023.

This project is being funded by the NSW Government through the WestInvest program ($1.5 million), Council ($610,000) and the Australian Government through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program ($590,000).
