Draft plans for a multi-million-dollar upgrade to County Road Reserve in Belrose are now on display for community feedback, giving locals another chance to make sure their park needs are met now and for the future.

Member for Davidson Jonathan O’Dea said County Road Reserve is among eight parks being created or upgraded across Greater Sydney, as part of the $50 million Parks for People program.

“At Belrose, we've had so many wonderful and inclusive ideas for County Road Reserve – from an upgraded sports field, to bush trails and even sensory learning activities,” Mr O’Dea said.

“Local communities are the experts when it comes to designing what they need, and that’s why we are relying on them to tell us what best suits them and what they value most in their open spaces.”

Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how important parks and public spaces are to everyone, every day.

“It is clear that our public open spaces play a vital role in maintaining our health and wellbeing,” Mr Stokes said.

“One of my goals as Minister for Public Spaces is to create a city within a park, and this means we need a green grid to link our parks together and this program facilitates that.”

Parks for People supports the Premier’s Priority of Greening our City, which aims to increase the tree canopy across Greater Sydney by the planting one million trees by 2022.
