Stewart Street Reserve Escarpment Lookout


Public consultation has now closed! Thank you for your feedback.

Council is excited to be delivering a unique lookout experience at the heart of the Parramatta River Foreshore Transformation Precinct at Stewart Street Reserve.

Council developed a draft concept plan which was submitted to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment 'Places to Roam' Program. Council was successful with the grant, which will transform the neglected open space along Stewart Street Reserve into an activated lookout over the Parramatta River.

The lookout will breathe much-needed life into the underutilised reserve and create a scenic and cultural destination for our community to enjoy. It’s at the centre of the gateway into the Parramatta CBD, linking the Escarpment Boardwalk and the upcoming Charles Street Square.

Scroll down to see what we have planned (or look under the resources section for the full legend)! Please keep in mind that the design is indicative only and the final design is subject to further site investigation and approvals. It includes new pathways, plantings, seating and a cantelevered platform.

Have your say!

Consultation closed at 5pm on Tuesday 13 December 2022.

Thank you for your feedback on the draft concept plan to help bring Stewart Street Reserve to life and create a unique lookout experience over the Parramatta River just minutes from the CBD! We are currently reviewing your feedback.
