The first comprehensive master plan for Moore Park – one of Australia's most culturally significant public parks has been released.

The ‘recreational heartbeat’ of Sydney city since 1866, Moore Park has a rich and varied history. It is a place for everyone, providing numerous benefits for our community - a place to play, a place to relax, a place to be entertained and a place to gather.

Developed over two years, and based on extensive community and stakeholder consultation, Moore Park 2040 will provide a blueprint to guide the direction and management of the Park over the next 25 years.

“In its 150 year history, Moore Park has never had a master plan. The delivery of the Plan was a significant commitment by Centennial Parklands and our commitment to ‘greening’ the green space and revitalising the built space currently in Moore Park,” said Tony Ryan, Chairman of the Centennial Park & Moore Park Trust.

“We were overwhelmed with the interest and positive support from both the community and its key stakeholders. Their feedback was instrumental in refining and ensuring that the master plan remained relevant, and delivered on its core commitment to ensure Moore Park remains one of Sydney’s most popular passive recreation, entertainment and sporting destinations.”

Key features of the Plan

  • More trees and 'greening’ of the Park (250 trees to be planted)
  • Improved access for cyclists and pedestrians (10 kilometres of new and enhanced pathways)
  • Greater provision for passive recreation (11% increase in space for passive recreational activities)
  • Greater emphasis on heritage conservation
  • New and enhanced facilities for high performance and community sport
  • Rationalisation of car parking
  • Integration with the new Light Rail network
