Stage one works

The City of Parramatta has completed stage one upgrades to Sherwin Park! Construction began on Wednesday 27 September 2023 and ran for approximately 12 weeks.

For more information on stage one upgrades, see the 'What's happening here?' board here or under the resources section.

Background

Sherwin Park in North Parramatta has a sunny space which has been earmarked for a community garden.

In late 2022, Council sought community feedback on a draft concept plan which proposes to transform the space with raised garden beds, an orchard, central lawn, pergola, greenhouse and more!

Construction of the garden is being delivered in stages, as funding becomes available. The first stage of construction will begin in Spring 2023, and take up to twelve weeks to complete. The first stage will include soil remediation, a water connection, thirteen raised vegetable garden beds, site fencing, compost bays, a paved delivery area and decomposed granite pathways. The Sherwin Park Garden Committee will work with Council to deliver a small greenhouse and a temporary shipping container for storage.

Please note, the workroom/meeting space, entrance pergola, orchard and central lawn shown in the Draft Concept Plan, will be delivered in a separate stage of works.


Who will care for the garden?

Community members and volunteers helped by the Sherwin Park Community Garden Committee (a Council endorsed Park Committee) will look after the garden. Learn more in Frequently Asked Questions.
