Penrith City Council has transformed the Penrith City Centre and unlocked the precinct to major opportunities with the delivery of a new City Park. At approximately 7,000sqm, City Park is a significant open space in a prime location on the corner of Henry Street and Station Street, Penrith.

City Park is 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.

The $19 million City Park project was funded through the NSW Government’s Western Sydney Infrastructure Grants Program ($8.23 million) and Public Spaces Legacy Program ($4 million), in partnership with Council ($6.81 million).

Community consultation 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.

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 be integrated.

Throughout 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 features provides interactive opportunities for the community, particularly in the warmer months. This increase in greenery, tree canopy and water features will have a positive impact on mitigating the heat island effect and cooling our City.
