New parkland opens in Sydney’s west

New parkland opens in Sydney’s west
September 28, 2019

Ismay Reserve, a new 2.5 hectare park at Powells Creek, opened today transforming an unused corridor in Sydney’s west into a new recreation and green space for the local community. The new park includes a children’s playground, barbeque facilities, ping pong tables, exercise stations and futsal court.

NSW Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes noted that Ismay Reserve, located next to the New M4 just north of Parramatta Road to Pomeroy Street at Homebush, is another example of the NSW Government’s commitment to creating new green open spaces.

Minister Stokes advised "this is the first new park to open as part of the WestConnex Legacy project and unlocks a previously inaccessible area for the local community that will be enjoyed for many years to come. Almost 6,000 homes are within 10 minutes’ walk of this fantastic new park.

“There’s also a new shared pedestrian and cycle path between Parramatta Road and Pomeroy Street that connects to Sydney Olympic Park to make it easier for people to get outside and enjoy the outdoors.”

WestConnex worked closely with Strathfield Council and the Greater Sydney Commission to create Ismay Reserve, which is located on the site of a former brick pit.

About 160 trees have also been planted in the new park, with another 5,500 trees to be added to the local tree canopy as part of the New M4 project.
