about 1 year ago

The City of Sydney invites your feedback on a proposed park and green link, as part of the private development of 25–55 Rothschild Avenue and 5–13 Rosebery Avenue, Rosebery.
This development will transform a former industrial estate into a new residential neighbourhood in Green Square.

The proposed 5,600 square metre park will be bordered by two existing streets and a new street. The design includes:
•a large open lawn and native plants
•barbecue and picnic areas
•shaded play spaces for children
•table tennis tables and a multi-purpose sports court
•an amenities block with public toilets
•a plaza space for community events, market stalls, food trucks and informal skating
•adjoining shops with outdoor seating.

The proposed 4,700 square metre green link for people walking and riding will connect Rosebery Avenue with Stedman and Spring streets and the new Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre on Joynton Avenue.

The site for the green link contains several mature fig trees, which will remain. The design includes:
•a lawn, picnic tables and seating
•fitness stations
•a path for people walking or riding bikes
•raised walkways among the existing fig trees
•creative lighting.

Your feedback on the proposal
We invite you to a community drop-in session at Sweetacres Park, corner of Mentmore Avenue and Cressy Street, Rosebery on Saturday 26 November from 10am to midday.

You’ll be able to see the concept designs, ask questions and give your feedback to City staff.

This park and green link will be delivered by Meriton as part of a planning agreement, and then handed over to the City of Sydney. These works will be delivered as part of a future phase of the development.
