Sydney’s newest Discovery Park will be open for public access for the first time in 2019.
Park Manager, John McLean, said the park was an opportunity to give back to the community.
“I know we’ve been inundated with the number of people who have expressed interest in taking part in the park, and the park has been able to tap into the community’s desire to be a part of the community and help it thrive,” he said.
“We hope that we can bring this park back to its original form and have the park be a destination for everyone, so it can thrive again and be something people come back to when they visit.”
A new visitor centre will open in the spring of 2019 to cater for the park’s growing population.
Mr McLean said there was also a desire to extend the park to include a small town.
“The city has been doing a great job of providing a small community to play around with, so we’ve also thought about expanding it to include the city, which will provide a bit of a unique experience for visitors and locals alike,” he explained.
“It will also help to get people out of their cars and onto the grass.”
Mr Mclean said the parks team would also be adding a few new features for the visitors to enjoy.
“The new visitor center will allow us to showcase our new attraction, and offer some fantastic new things for visitors to do,” he told the FourFour Two.
“And then in the summer we will be adding an area for kids to play and a smaller, more intimate section of the park for them to get their own little bit of privacy.”
