Have your say on the Inner West’s pocket parks

Thursday, 15 August 2019

Inner West Council is seeking ideas on how to best use the 200 small parks dotted throughout the local government area. The Council is consulting the community on a new plan of management covering all pocket parks across the Inner West.

“The Inner West is one of the most populated communities in Australia – and that makes these little pocket parks so much more precious and valuable,” said Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne.

“They might be small, but they contribute a lot to our quality of life.

“When local kids have little to no backyard, every inch of open space becomes so much more important.

“That’s why I urge everyone to have their say on what they like about our pocket and neighbourhood parks and what could be improved,” Mayor Byrne said.

The plan of management will contain key principles and priorities to deliver high quality parks which are welcoming, accessible and enjoyable.

Everyone is invited to have their say on what improvements they would like to see.

Go to Your Say Inner West for ward maps of these parks:

Ashfield Ward – Djarrawunang (Magpie)
Balmain Ward – Baludarri (Leather Jacket)
Leichhardt Ward – Gulgadya (Grass Tree)
Marrickville Ward – Midjuburi (Lillypilly)
Stanmore Ward – Damun (Port Jackson Fig)

Everyone who gives feedback will be notified when the draft plan is placed on public exhibition for final community comment.

Following the public exhibition, the plan will be finalised for decision by the elected Council.
