Moore Park Master Plan 2040

The ‘recreational heartbeat’ of our city since 1866, Moore Park is one of Australia’s most culturally significant parks with a rich and varied history. It is a place for everyone, providing numerous benefits for our community - a place to play, a place to relax, a place to be entertained and a place to gather.

In its 150 year history Moore Park has never had a comprehensive master plan. Developed over 2 years, Moore Park 2040 addresses this need providing a blueprint to guide the direction and management of the Park over the next 25 years. You can view and download the Plan via this link here.

Key features of the Plan

  • More trees and 'greening’ of the Park (250 trees to be planted)
  • Improved access for cyclists and pedestrians (10 kilometres of new and enhanced pathways)
  • Greater provision for passive recreation (11% increase in space for passive recreational activities)
  • Greater emphasis on heritage conservation
  • New and enhanced facilities for high performance and community sport
  • Rationalisation of car parking
  • Integration with the new Light Rail network

Consultation – how we listened to you

Extensive consultation was undertaken in two stages in developing the master plan. Initially, ‘7 Big Ideas for Moore Park’ were exhibited for a six week period in August – September 2015 to get public and stakeholder input on the future of Moore Park. Based on feedback from this process a draft plan was prepared.

The draft plan was then publicly exhibited in November – December 2016 and following a strong public awareness campaign and an eight week consultation process, over 700 responses were received (a combination of formal submissions, online surveys and face-to-face discussions).

This feedback was critical in influencing the final recommendations of the Plan.

Implementing the Plan

While Moore Park is a long term strategic planning document we have already begun working on a number of key projects recommended in the Plan including:

  • Facilitation of the NSW Government’s South East Light Rail project
  • Upgrading the Moore Park Golf Driving Range
  • Restoration of the historically significant Toll House
  • Extensive tree planting
  • Stage 1 (new car park) of the redevelopment of ES Marks Field
  • Relocation of the Anzac Obelisk to Moore Park East.

You can keep in touch with us, and learn more about the progress in implementing the plan through:

Another consultation channel that exists to make your voice heard over any matters relating to Moore Park is the Centennial Parklands Community Consultative Committee. Find out more.
