Why this petition matters

Started by NPRAG Inc

World Heritage listed Parramatta Park has had hectares of  land given away to stadiums, an RSL, carparks and rail lines- NOW it’s time to give back to Parramatta Park.

Adding the 20ha the former Cumberland Hospital grounds beside Parramatta Park is a no brainer to deliver our community more public green space

City of Parramatta’s population is set to double by 2038 so we MUST increase our public green space as the pandemic demonstrated how much parklands were vital for our mental and physical health.

The Lord Mayor Councillor Donna Davis said this week during a Parliamentary Inquiry into Greater Sydney Parklands - adding to Parramatta Park with the 20ha heritage landscapes of the former mental health hospital would be a "GAME CHANGER”.


Parramatta Council have calculated that residents are at a deficit of 212ha of green space . This is our only chance to make our public park bigger!! 

Sign this petition NOW To tell the Planning Minister and Public Spaces Minister to GIVE BACK TO PARRAMATTA PARK AND ADD FORMER CUMBERLAND HOSPITAL GROUNDS IN 2022 !
