Bank Street Park communications and engagement support
The NSW Government is planning for Sydney’s future and transforming public access to Blackwattle Bay. The redevelopment of Blackwattle Bay offers an exciting opportunity to reconnect the harbour, its surrounding neighbourhoods and the city; to showcase Sydney’s living culture and stories of Country; and to build an inclusive and iconic waterfront destination that celebrates innovation, diversity and community.
As part of the redevelopment, there will be a new harbour foreshore walkway that connects to and throughout a new one hectare waterside park at Bank Street, Pyrmont, currently known as the Bank Street Park.
The park will surround the southern pylon of the Anzac Bridge and is a rare and exciting opportunity to create a new open space for the existing and future community.
The new park will:
- expand the offerings of recreational, community and cultural amenities in the Blackwattle Bay Precinct
- maintain and enhance the connection to water through views, uses and activities, and
- create a place for everyone that is inviting, unique in character, socially inclusive and accessible.
In June 2022, Infrastructure NSW engaged Cred Consulting to design and deliver two phases of community engagement. The outcomes of Phase One Community Engagement will help inform the design brief of the new waterfront park. Phase Two Community Engagement will test design options for the park with the community.
