Tempe Lands

Off South Street, Tempe (up the hill adjacent to the golf driving range)

Tempe Lands was the site of a shale quarry in the 1920s, a greyhound racing track in the 1940s, and then a rubbish tip until the mid-1970s.

In 2004 the then-Marrickville Council began extensive work to remediate the site, and one year later it was reopened as new parklands featuring a golf driving range, a fenced off-leash dog exercise area, walking paths and wetlands.

The wetlands have since become a thriving haven for native wildlife. Local volunteer group Tempe Birdos meets monthly to survey bird life and other fauna in the wetlands. In 2017, the group recorded their 100th bird species sighting.
