The People's Loop
Trialling changes to your cycling and walking experience in Parramatta Park
The People's Loop Trial has now ended. The two-month trial transformed walking and cycling in World Heritage-listed Parramatta Park from 18 May to Sunday 19 July 2020.
With COVID-19 restrictions placing a stronger emphasis on the vital role parks and public spaces play in supporting mental and physical health, we are creating more space in the Park for you to walk and cycle in the fresh air while observing safe social distancing, through temporary changes to vehicle access, parking and circulation. See our response to COVID-19 via our side menu.
Normal traffic conditions resumed from Monday 20 July.
The People's Loop Trial ended on Sunday 19 July 2020.
The eight-week trial was based on the People’s Loop project, a future Parramatta Park plan, and received over 1000 survey responses from the community.
Changed traffic conditions
The Park will remain open to vehicles during the trial but changed traffic conditions include:
- Queens Road Gate will be closed to vehicles at all times. Macquarie Street gates will remain open as normal for vehicles to enter and exit the Park.
- Cars will be re-routed to travel northbound one way on Long Avenue, creating a car-free, pedestrian, and cycling loop in West Domain area . Roadside car parking along the West Domain area will be closed for the duration of the trial.
- Pedestrians on Long Avenue will use the alternate ridge-top footpath. Cyclists may use Long Avenue northbound one way.
- Vehicle access to Old Government House and the long stay car parks at the Bowling Green and O’Connell Street will remain as normal.
Normal traffic conditions resume from Monday 20 July, 2020. Trust staff will be on site, please take care and follow all directions. Thank you for your understanding.
As a trial, the Trust is keen to see how the community will support this new Park experience.
