Western Sydney gets a $15 million ‘Super Park’

Super Park - Bungarribee - Treehouse

 

March 11, 2015. NSW Premier Mike Baird today unveiled the design for the 200 hectare Bungarribee Super Park, which will provide Western Sydney residents with a playground to rival the world’s best urban parklands.

Mr Baird and Environment Minister Rob Stokes today visited Western Sydney Parklands to announce the $15 million project, which is due for completion by 2018.

“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is building the transport, roads, hospitals and schools needed in Western Sydney and also ensuring local residents have access to world-class recreation facilities,” Mr Baird said.

“The new Bungarribee Super Park will become as iconic for Western Sydney as New York’s Central Park and London’s Hyde Park.

“It will be a place for locals to relax, explore and picnic in the great outdoors and for international tourists to experience the wonders of Australia’s bush in a unique urban setting.

“The last expansion of recreational facilities on this scale in Western Sydney was almost 30 years ago, when Bicentennial Park at Homebush was built.”

Mr Stokes said the Bungarribee Super Park will include 15,000 trees, four kilometres of bike and walking paths with bridges and lookouts, multiple playgrounds, cafes, an events space, 400 parking spaces, and a magnificent forest of gum trees.

“The Bungarribee Super Park is located in the northern section of the Western Sydney Parklands, and is surrounded by the communities of Mount Druitt, Prospect, Seven Hills, and Blacktown,” Mr Stokes said.

“The communities of Western Sydney should not have to travel to enjoy world class recreation facilities and this park will cut the need for them to commute to other parts of Sydney to enjoy the great outdoors.

“The park also includes a unique playground, with an aeroplane shaped treehouse at the same height as the tree canopy that will provide children with a ‘bird’s eye view’ of the entire 200 hectare park.

“Under the Baird Government, Western Sydney Parklands has become a major tourism destination, and the Bungarribee Super Park will complement other attractions in the parklands, including Wet‘n’Wild, the Tree Top Adventure Park, and the Wylde Mountain Bike Trail.”
