Parramatta Park boasts a rich array of natural, Aboriginal and historical heritage values. To evaluate likely impacts, constraints and opportunities, Western Sydney Parklands Trust commissioned Artefact to complete a suite of assessments. This work included a detailed heritage survey, plus consultation with Aboriginal stakeholders to establish local cultural values and guide archaeological excavations. Together, they revealed many possibilities.
The planned upgrade works were able to proceed under an Aboriginal Heritage Impact Permit secured by Artefact.
Park’s planning constraints. This collaboration within legislative restrictions ensured that Western Sydney Parklands Trust can continue to plan enhancements into the future. But for now, visitors are delighting in the park’s new facilities.
