Upgraded park win for all family

A NEW and exciting $1.5 million play space is coming to Parry Park, providing opportunities for residents and visitors of all age groups to connect and play in their own way.

The project will include a sand and water play area, kids’ cycle track with a challenging bumpy terrain, dynamic play zone with swings and a spinner, and a passive lawn area for quiet play overlooking the entire area, as well as picnic shelters, barbecues and a new amenities building, with baby changing facilities.
Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour turned the first sod last week to mark the start of construction.
Excited to see a state-of-the-art play space be constructed at Parry Park, he said unique play equipment will be installed at the playground to cater to different ages and ability levels.
Expected to be complete early 2022, the park “was identified as a prime location for a major recreation destination and sports hub to address the shortage of quality open space in Lakemba”.
“It is what the community has called for and needed,” the Mayor said.
The park, located between Punchbowl Road and Koala Road, is easily accessible by public transport.
Parking has also been improved and the footpath widened to include a shared path, “increasing the accessibility and facilities Parry Park offers”.
