NSW Government Public Spaces Legacy Program
The NSW Government is investing up to $250 million through the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program to support councils to deliver more and better public spaces across the state. This is the biggest injection of funding for public spaces in a generation.
Thanks to a $5.5 million share in funding Burwood Council will deliver the Enfield Village Revitalisation Project, Grant Park All Inclusive Playground and Burwood Park Nature Play, Sensory Garden and Pond Upgrade.
Public spaces are the heart of our communities, they connect us, inspire us and make us healthier and happier. Legacy projects will shape and transform the urban fabric of our neighbourhoods leaving a real and lasting positive impact for future generations. We want future generations to be able to point to these legacy projects and appreciate how they have helped shape and change our network of public open spaces in NSW for the better.
To access the funding, Burwood Council needed to demonstrate accelerated development assessment processes – helping to reduce red tape and keep the broader economy moving. This incentive helps to drive the determination of local DAs and bolster the construction pipeline through to 2024.

This project aims to return the existing area of open space back to active use, allowing for significant social benefits through the development of a new inclusive play space where people of all abilities can meet, recreate, play and ultimately have fun.
The project includes
- A new all abilities playground
- Landscaping and native trees
- BBQ facilities
- An accessible amenities block and more
This project proposes to transform the existing unused bowling green facing Shelley Street, Enfield into an all inclusive play space that will also serve to support the other wide-ranging facilities available within the Henley Park Precinct.
