HJ Mahoney Reserve Youth Facility

Wednesday 23 June 2021


 Inner West Council’s new Youth Facility at HJ Mahoney Reserve is part of Council’s Cooks River Parklands upgrade.

This new facility includes a new multi-purpose court, three street art walls, outdoor stage and social spaces, circular paths, native planting, and furniture.

Council committed $447,000 to the Youth Facility and a total of $1.6m to the Cooks River Parklands upgrade Stage 3. *The Stage 3 upgrade was partly funded by the Federal Government.

“Council has invested $65 million in parks, sports grounds and aquatic facilities in the past three years as part of our plan to create a healthier community and deliver first class sport and recreation facilities for everyone in the Inner West,” said Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne.

Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, said the Morrison Government’s $297,000 investment in the new public precinct was supporting Australia’s COVID-19 recovery.

“Not only will this project boost liveability for residents, especially young people, it has supported local jobs at every stage of its development,” Senator Payne said.

“I commend Inner West Council for their vision in seeing through the ongoing implementation of the Cooks River Parklands Master Plan, and for achieving this latest milestone.”

*The Australian Government contributed $297,000, which is part of the $1.6 million Cooks River Parklands Upgrade stage 3.
