Gipps Street Recreation Precinct underway

A sod turning by Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen and Penrith City Council’s General Manager Warwick Winn at the 32-hectare Gipps Street Recreation Precinct has signalled the official start of the multi-million-dollar project.

The precinct, when complete in 2023 will deliver multiple sports fields, full amenities, inclusive children’s area featuring water play, a dedicated Youth Precinct including a skate park and our City’s very first pump track. There will be outdoor gym equipment, an off-leash dog park, shaded picnic areas with BBQs and beautiful nature walks too.

“This facility is going to be something truly special for the people of Penrith and I can’t wait to see it delivered for our community,” Cr Hitchen said.
