    The Green Square town centre really started to take shape in 2016, along with new facilities, parks and developments around the wider area.

    Highlights have included the launch of the colourful Wulaba Park in April 2016, along with our welcome party for new residents. We spoke to hundreds of residents at our Have Your Say day in May, and the open day at the Green Square Community and Cultural precinct in July gave everyone a great "behind the scenes" look into the progress at the former South Sydney Hospital site. See the photos on this page.

    Residents have provided feedback on plans for new streets and open space, including Garraway Park in Rosebery, a small park at 904 Bourke Street, a new park at North Rosebery, and important projects including the upgrade of Joynton Avenue, and the Green Square to Randwick cycleway.

    Members of our Construction Liaison Group for the Green Square Town Centre – North, have given up their time to give us valuable feedback on the impacts of construction in the area so that the City and developers can resolve these as quickly as possible. You can see construction updates on this page or the City's Green Square web pages.

    As a result of community feedback, we have increased our parking patrols and cleansing services around the town centre construction sites.

    There will be new opportunities to participate in these groups in 2017, as more private development commences, and the City commences work on the Drying Green, Gunyama Park Aquatic Recreation Centre and Gunyama Park.
