Penrith A Winner in WestInvest Funding Announcment

Penrith City Council’s vision to make Penrith the place to be is a step closer to reality following a major announcement from the NSW Government today.

Council has been successful in its application for close to $30 million of WestInvest funding for two transformational projects, a central park in St Marys and the accelerated delivery of Gipps Street Recreation Precinct, a 32-hectare sport and recreation development in Claremont Meadows.

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said these were identified by Council as key projects, set to enhance the eastern portion of the Local Government Area and create much-needed green spaces where residents will be able to connect, play and be active.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Council to transform our City into the place to be – and these two aspirational projects in and near St Marys will bring our vision to life.

“A central park in St Marys will enhance liveability by creating a new exciting space for people from both near and far to come together to relax, play and be entertained, while the Gipps Street Recreation Precinct will have something for everyone with water play areas, sports courts, a pump track, passive recreation areas, and more.”
