Masterplan and Plan of Management - Meadowbank Park and Memorial Park

Consultation closed on 04 November 2018

For the latest project updates, please see the Latest Updates below.

The City of Ryde is seeking your input to create a Masterplan for Meadowbank Park and Memorial Park, and a Plan of Management for Meadowbank Park. 

Located in Meadowbank on the Parramatta River, these parks currently include sports fields, sports courts, playgrounds, the Ryde Outdoor Youth and Family Space (under construction), walking and bike paths, amenity buildings, picnic facilities, car parks, memorials, bushland areas and waterways.

Why is a Masterplan needed?
Council delivers a wide range of sport and recreation services through a network of regional, district, neighbourhood and local open space, parklands, sportsgrounds and indoor and outdoor facilities.

While the network has served the community well for many years, Council recognises that within the context of a rapidly growing and changing area, the roles and functions of our facilities need to be reviewed and updated to meet the community's needs. 

The purpose of the Masterplan is to identify and meet the current and future sport, recreation and leisure needs of the community, whilst enhancing the environment and sustainability of the parks and the Parramatta River corridor.

What is the Plan of Management?
The Plan of Management will proposes strategies that guide the future use and management of Meadowbank Park.
