The state-of-the-art water recreation space is set to revitalise the heart of Campbelltown City and become a landmark facility for Sydney.

Billabong Parklands is taking shape

The swimming lagoons are starting to take shape as excavation works proceed on the site to create the children's play areas and splash zones that will connect down to the deep water bodies.

A sandstone coloured, reinforced concrete pile wall now spans the upper side of the 4 ha site, reaching heights of up to 7 metres across a distance of over 200 metres.

Landscaping is continuing with hundreds of trees and native plants already in the ground, establishing themselves as the parklands continue to develop. The plants selected vary in size from young tube stock to more mature trees, some many metres tall, to provide shade and shelter for people using the facility as well as habitat for native birds and animals.

Project funding

The project is funded by Council, the Australian Government and NSW Government under the Western Sydney Liveability Program ($31 million) and additional funding for gateway areas around the site provided by the NSW Government Public Spaces Legacy Fund ($4 million).

The project includes a range of recreational water play facilities, landscaped areas, parklands and amenities over the four hectare site, including a stream, swimming lagoon and a zero-depth play area.

The landscape features of the design are based on the local Dharawal National Park and Georges River to reflect the importance of our local environment and Aboriginal culture.
