City of Ryde Draft Open Space Future Provision Strategy

Consultation closed on 07 February 2021

The draft Open Space Future Provision Strategy provides a road map for enhancing both the capacity and accessibility of the City’s open space, sufficient to meet open space, recreation and sports facility needs to 2036.

The Strategy is based on a study that found that the City’s open space and sports facilities (with the exception of indoor courts) meet most current needs. However, based on existing participation rates and population growth, there will be need by 2036 for:

  • An additional 135 hectares of open space to maintain per capita supply at current levels
  • 13 additional full-size ovals (or equivalent)
  • 12 additional indoor courts
  • Nearly 700m2 of swimming pool space

The study also assessed the accessibility of open space and sport and recreation facilities and found that all suburbs in the City have areas where access to open space could be improved.

The draft Open Space Future Strategy proposes a strategic framework for addressing the open space and sport and recreation facility service gaps comprising of:

  • Vision and objectives
  • Strategies
  • Actions (i.e. projects)

Council is now seeking your comments and feedback on the proposed strategies and actions. Your comments will help Council to ensure that the City of Ryde’s open space and sports facilities meet the community’s recreation needs well into the future.
