THE PROJECT

The revitalisation of Tench Reserve at the Nepean River continues with the announcement of a new $10 million open space park to be developed and delivered by the NSW Government.

This project is being funded through the Department of Primary Industry and Environment’s Parks for People Program which aims to improve communities’ access to high quality open space areas and increase green cover.

Consultation for this project is set to begin in September 2020 with the community invited to share their ideas and thoughts about the new open space area at Tench Reserve in an online survey: https://dpie.mysocialpinpoint.com.au/tench-reserve

HAVE YOUR SAY

The NSW Government is asking the Penrith community to provide input into the vision and design of a new green open space at Tench Reserve. This is your chance to share your ideas including the activities and experiences you would like to have there.

Your ideas and input at this stage of the project will inform the development of a concept design for this new open space area at Tench Reserve. Head to https://dpie.mysocialpinpoint.com.au/tench-reserve to fill in the short survey before 22 September 2020.

BACKGROUND

In 2013 Penrith City Council commissioned the Our River Masterplan which was developed with the community and outlined a shared vision and a strategic framework to celebrate, activate and protect the City’s favourite natural asset.

Community engagement over the past 12 years has continually highlighted the Nepean River as a key part of Penrith’s sense of place, with the most recent engagement showing that open spaces and recreation areas are more important than ever before.

This year has seen the delivery of multiple projects integral to Council’s Our River Masterplan and Council’s commitment to protect and celebrate the Nepean River and better connect the community and residents to this spectacular natural resource. 

In Tench Reserve, Council has constructed a shared pathway between Jamison Road and the M4 overpass, new accessible parkland paths as well as two new waters-edge decks. These new elements offer a wide range of leisure and recreation opportunities.

The delivery of this project at Tench Reserve and Council’s ongoing program of work to revitalise the Nepean River is set to strengthen Penrith’s position as Western Sydney’s most liveable city.
