Penrith City Council is transforming the Penrith City Centre and unlocking the precinct to major opportunities with the delivery of a new $12 million City Park. At approximately 7,000sqm, City Park will be a significant open space in a prime location on the corner of Henry Street and Station Streets, Penrith.

City Park will be a vibrant, thriving, green space with something for everyone and plenty of opportunities to meet, retreat, eat, be active and celebrate together. These aspects are expected to strengthen its appeal as a destination for residents, workers, and visitors and stimulate the day and night time economy.

Design

Community consultation has helped shape the City Park design. The detailed design was released in late 2020 and provides us with an exciting glimpse into the future of the new park. You can view a selection of artist impressions located in the photos folder on this webpage.

The design delivers on Council’s vision and our community’s aspirations for City Park to service many functions including the opportunity for future place activations, beautiful landscapes and showcasing smart technology and innovation. Importantly, the design includes an understanding of how future redevelopment surrounding the park can integrate.

During consultations the community has expressed a strong desire for City Park to bring nature into the city. The design responds to this by significantly increasing the tree canopy on the site celebrating the existing tree on site and proposing a combination of endemic, ornate, and deciduous trees which enables use of the park through all seasons.

A variety of water elements including a rain garden, misting clusters and ponds are also featured to provide interactive opportunities particularly in warm weather. This increase in greenery, tree canopy and water elements will have a positive impact on mitigating the heat island effect and cooling our City.
