As a NSW government agency, Parramatta Park Trust is governed by legislation enacted by the NSW Parliament.
The Park has rules and regulations to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all visitors and to help protect the Park’s heritage, plants and animals.
Parramatta Park Regulation Remake
In accordance with Section 5 of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989, the Parramatta Park Trust is currently reviewing and remaking the Parramatta Park Regulation.
The objectives of the Regulation are:
- To create a common sense framework to manage the Park and protect its facilities and environment.
- Help people equitably enjoy Park facilities, promoting visitor enjoyment and safety in the park
- Provide for organised events and activities in the Park and allow the Trust to charge for commercial activities in the Park.
The existing regulations are functioning reasonably well and no significant stakeholder concerns have been raised with the existing arrangements. However, updates are required to improve the management of contemporary issues in park management such as the management of events and related security issues as well as a review of penalty notice values to improve consistency with other agencies.
Public consultation has closed on 19 July. Submissions are currently being reviewed and final regulations will be published on our website shortly.
