Projects, events and operational updates

Have you noticed some work going on in our park?

Our park is such a special place for many reasons, including being home to many important monuments and sites. As part of our heritage conservation program, we’re doing some maintenance work around the park.

Currently this work includes:

  • Boer war memorial is now fenced off for maintenance and repair works to the roof and cannon.
  • Bath house is being cleaned and painted
  • Pitt Street and Wistaria Gardens palisade fences are being repaired.
  • The Dairy and Ranger’s Cottage has conservation work underway.  

We will update this notice if there is any new maintenance work in our beautiful park.

If you have any questions please email us.

What we are doing in response to Covid-19

Updated 1 April 2021 

Following NSW Health orders, outdoor gatherings are now limited to 200 people. 

Please note that this is a revised order as of 29 March 2021.

Please remember social distancing and other COVID-19 safety guidelines when gathering in Parramatta Park. 

 

The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our priority.  We are closely checking and responding to NSW Health advice in this rapidly changing environment and will keep you updated as health restrictions are eased.

Parramatta Park is open and we are monitoring visitor numbers and behaviour daily to make sure we continue to provide a quality experience for everyone.

If COVID-19 numbers increase and social distancing becomes difficult, we will consider making the Park pedestrian-only and closing playgrounds again if necessary.

Here is the latest advice:

  • Help reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection by staying 1.5 metres away from other people where possible and avoiding close contact with people you do not live with.
  • NSW Health strongly recommends that you carry a clean face mask with you and wear it if you are unable to maintain 1.5 metres of physical distance from others.

  • If gatherings and planned activities are more than 200 participants, the organiser must have a COVID-19 Safety Plan and the Trust will need to approve the plan prior to booking. Please note, each picnic shelter is subject to its own capacity limit (including adults and children). Visit our shelter booking page for more information regarding picnic shelter capacity limits.

Murray Gardens amenities buiding

The brand new Murray Gardens toilets including accessible facilities is now open to the public. 

Sports facilities get a boost 

This autumn sees the first stages of a three-year, $3M project to improve youth sports facilities in the Park.

Thanks to a NSW Government grant, grass surfaces at the West Domain, Cattle Paddocks, Coleman Oval and Old Kings Oval are being top-dressed to improve playability and resilience.  Future plans include more grass work, irrigation systems and new cricket wickets.

The fields will remain open during this work but we advise Park visitors to be careful after wet weather. This round of works will be completed by the first week of June, weather permitting. There are no expected pathway or road closures during this time.
