As part of the Rozelle Interchange project, a new park of up to 10 hectares will be constructed at the old Rozelle Railyards site.
Once complete, Rozelle Parklands will include a wetlands with a boardwalk, picnic and BBQ areas, play equipment, pedestrian and cyclist paths and green fields for leisure activities.
The Rozelle Interchange project has prepared an Urban Design and Landscape Plan (UDLP) in consultation with Inner West Council, community and businesses. The UDLP determines items such as landscaping, tunnel portals, tunnels, service buildings, bridges, retaining walls, pedestrian and cyclist access, lighting and wayfinding, heritage, monitoring and maintenance.
While the Rozelle Interchange UDLP includes provision for two sports fields and four multi-purpose courts, it does not determine the potential recreational and sport use and maintenance for facilities not described in the UDLP.
The NSW Government called upon community members to apply to be part of the Rozelle Parklands Working Group, alongside representatives from the NSW Government and Inner West Council.
The purpose of the Working Group is to determine the optimal uses for the Rozelle Parklands that includes the recreation and sporting fields and to ensure all perspectives are considered across government, council, community and relevant groups, to provide the best outcome for the local community. The Working Group will provide a forum for collaboration between group members to enable a fair, sustainable, productive and sensitive outcome.
Up to three community representatives who are recognised as having a leadership role in their community will be chosen.
