Landscape design contract awarded for new St Marys park


Penrith City Council has reached a new milestone in the transformation of the St Marys Town Centre, with the awarding of the landscape design contract for St Marys Central Park.  

The appointment of landscape and urban design specialists, Moir Landscape Architecture, to develop the design of St Marys Central Park brings the delivery of a new civic green heart for St Marys one step closer, said Mayor, Todd Carney.

The $21 million St Marys Central Park project is funded through the NSW Government’s Western Sydney Infrastructure Grants Program in partnership with Council. It was identified by the community as a key project during the development of Council’s St Marys Town Centre Structure Plan which establishes a long-term vision for the future of the area.  

“We heard from hundreds of residents and business about their ideas for St Marys Central Park when we consulted with the community on the draft St Marys Town Centre Place Plan last year, and the Structure Plan before that,” Mayor Carney said. 

“We’re excited to share the draft design with the community later this year for their feedback and to make sure we’re on the right track.

“St Marys Central Park will become a vibrant community hub, connecting Queen Street to local shopping precincts, facilities, and infrastructure beyond the main street of town, encouraging people to explore more of St Marys.” 

An entertainment area for people to enjoy local and regional talent will be a key feature of the design, along with natural shade, a central lawn, play areas, public artwork, and more.
