The Neighbourhood Parks Program is a four-year program aimed at enhancing our community's neighbourhood parks. The $6.1 million program is funded by the NSW Government’s Western Sydney Infrastructure Grant (WSIG) program.

Over the course of this program, Council will upgrade 16 parks across the four Wards of the Blue Mountains. In each Ward, there will be four parks upgraded - one each year, over four years.

Consultation is now open for the parks to be upgraded in 2025: Melrose Park, Katoomba; Wilson Park, Wentworth Falls; Bundah Park, Winmalee; and Hall Park, Mount Riverview.

While each park’s upgrade is subject to considerations due to budget, heritage and environmental considerations, your feedback will help us understand how our parks are used, how you would like to use them, and what you would like included in your parks.

The focus for these projects is on renewal of the things that are already in the park and has been developed with consideration of other potential grant sources which may be used for other needs at each facility.

It's important to remember that Council can't provide everything in any one neighbourhood park. We aim to provide a little bit of everything across the neighbourhood parks in each ward. When you think about what you would like in any park, please also consider what is already available in the other parks around you.

Each park has a budget of approximately $300,000 per park with a total budget for each ward of $1.2 million. The budget for each park may be adjusted, but the budget for each ward is fixed. If needed, unspent budget from some parks may be diverted to other parks within the same ward.

We have created an interactive survey for each park, where you get to choose what you'd like in your parks. Each of the choices has a number of points assigned to it, and each park has 100 points to 'spend', allowing you to prioritise what's important to you, within the funding budget.

It's easy and fun to use - and your suggestions will help shape the future of our parks.

The first round of consultation has already taken place for the parks to be upgraded in 2024: Medlow Park, Medlow Bath; Golden Horizons, Hazelbrook; and Thomas Park, Blaxland.

Buttenshaw Park Small Pump Track in Faulconbridge is also part of the 2024 program, however this will be focused on a new small pump track, based on previous community consultation. Council will release the exciting details of this project separately.
