Why are there two surveys about recreation and open spaces?
While the Sport, Recreation, Play and Open Spaces Strategy and Public Open Space Reinvestment Project seem similar, they are 2 separate projects, with different objectives, and targeting different parts of the community.

Below is a summary of the key differences between the projects.

Local vs City-wide

  • The Public Open Space Reinvestment Project (POSRP) is mostly focused on older, established neighbourhoods – Erskine Park was first, now we are looking at South Penrith and Jamisontown.
  • The Sport, Recreation, Play and Open Spaces Strategy (SRPOS) is a City-wide project, engaging with the whole Penrith community and regional stakeholders.

Surplus land vs all facilities

  • POSRP is looking specifically at under-utilised parcels of passive open space in areas where there may be surplus
  • SRPOS is looking at all facilities (indoor and outdoor) used for sport, general recreation, play and leisure.

Reinvestment vs 10-year plan

  • POSRP is investigating the possibility of selling under-utilised land in specific areas to fund improvements to other local spaces.
  • SRPOS is developing a strategy for how to manage, change and improve all sport, recreation, play and open spaces across the LGA, to account for population growth and community needs, for the next 10 years.
