New view for Georges River’s Oatley Park

Sydney’s Georges River Council is preparing a new 10-year vision for Oatley Park – a popular regional park bounded by the Georges River, Lime Kiln Bay, and Jew Fish Bay.

Members of the public are being invited to participate in a survey to guide new uses, planning and management of the Park so it can cater to the changing demands of our community for the next 10 years.

Georges River Mayor Nick Katris said: “Oatley Park has a strong natural heritage with diverse native habitats.  It has a range of recreational attractions that cater for diverse groups from across Sydney.”

“The community involvement in developing the draft Plans will ensure this Park remains a popular spot for local residents and visitors.”

Many people from Georges River and from broader Sydney visit this important regional park regularly and have an important role to play in the development of the Plans, he said.

In addition to the survey, a webinar will be hosted on Wednesday 16 February at 6pm to ensure all park users have the opportunity to ask questions and have their say about the future of Oatley Park.

All submissions gathered from the community consultation will inform and help shape the development of the draft Plan of Management and Master Plan.

Consultation is open until 28 February 2022.
