Marrickville Park upgrade Stage One now open

Stage One of Marrickville Park’s $2.7 million refurbishment has opened.

Stage One of the park upgrade includes new playground and picnic area, fitness equipment, tree and garden planting and part installation of the new park loop pathway and Sports Walk of Honour.

Administrator of Inner West Council Mr Richard Pearson said that Council was delivering a number of strategic community projects and a major program of community infrastructure projects.

"This project was a significant one for the former Marrickville Council. It encompasses improvements to local infrastructure and many benefits for our community and sports clubs.

“Along with the upgrade of Camperdown Park – Stage One will be completed there shortly, too – Marrickville Park upgrade will deliver to our residents more beautiful open spaces and many more recreational opportunities,” Mr Pearson said.

The Sports Walk honours high-achieving local sportspeople who were born or lived in the Marrickville area.

Plaques dot the new loop pathway, acknowledging the careers of sportspeople who were nominated by the local community.

Other works completed during Stage One include upgrades to the tennis club building and new sports oval picket fencing.

Lights have been installed and will be activated when power supply is provided in one to two weeks time.

The new World War II memorial sculpture by Andrew Poppleton will be officially unveiled on Remembrance Day, Friday 11 November, 3pm.

The memorial will be Inner West Council’s newest public artwork. It will feature in the rondel along the pathway in the north east section of the park, near the corner of Livingston Road and Frazer Street.

Stage Two of the Marrickville Park works will be completed early 2017, and includes multi use courts, new sports amenities building and completion of the park loop pathway and Sporting Walk of Honour.
