Hudson District Park
On 1 March 2019, the Hudson Park Golf Course permanently closed and work commenced on an Urban District Park. The existing Driving Range will remain open until construction of a new Driving Range within the park is completed.
Closing the golf course and creating a district park, will cater to the leisure and recreational needs of the whole community, rather than the golfing needs of a few.
As there is a pressing need to improve the environment and reduce increasing urban heat by planting trees, the necessity for effective utilisation of green space has become prevalent.
The Strathfield District Park will transform currently under-utilised space into a flourishing green area for sports and passive recreation. The plan includes:
- Upgraded driving range
- Sports courts
- A playground
- Picnic areas
- A scenic lake
- Substantial tree planting
Stage 1 Complete!
Stage 1 of the Hudson District Park project has been completed. This included extensive turfing, installation of a lake and water fountain! The lake has been filled with past rainfall and water harvested from stormwater drains.
