Through an agreement with Sydney Water, Strathfield Council has secured new green space for the enjoyment of local residents in Strathfield.
The green space is parallel to Liverpool Road in an area between Fitzgerald Crescent and Cooks River, totalling 2,459 square meters of open space. The space was originally owned by Sydney Water, fenced off from the public, and used to access the water pipelines that lie underneath the ground.
Under the agreement, Sydney Water has already removed the fences, and the space is open to the public. Moving forward, Council will be responsible for the maintenance of the area including grass mowing, and may embellish the property for community use including adding shade, BBQ’s, pathways and seating. Sydney Water will have continued access to the water pipes for maintenance.
Strathfield Council Mayor, Cr Matthew Blackmore said “open, green space is vital for the health and wellbeing of our community and Council is committed to providing this to residents. The new space is a big win for our community, and aligns with resident priorities and feedback which were identified in our Community Strategic Plan.”
