10-year plan for Dulwich Hill Parks:Laxton Reserve, Arlington Reserve, Johnson Park and Hoskins Park

Each of the parks cater for a range of recreation opportunities with organised sport, children's playgrounds, exercise equipment, picnic facilities, barbecues, public toilets and open space. The parks are a retreat for locals who like to walk, watch sports or play with their dog. Others jog, play on the grass or rest under the shade of the large shade trees.

Council is developing plans to manage the park’s future use and facilities over the next 10 years. Everyone who uses them or lives in the local area is invited to give us feedback to ensure the plans meet the needs of the community now and in the future.

View the parks' locations and the scope of the plan here

Council conducted initial engagement on the plan in late 2016. Read the feedback report here.


What happens next?

Council staff will draft the plans for the parks which will be published on this project page in 2018 for further community comment.

  • November 2017 - Comment on new landscaped stormwater options for Hoskins Park

    11 days ago

    Council is working with Sydney Water to understand how waterway health in Hoskins Park can be improved. Sydney Water is seeking feedback from the community on options for new landscaping in the grassed areas of the park that would treat stormwater. The benefits to waterway health would be:

    • cleaner stormwater entering the Hawthorne Canal
    • new habitat areas for native plants and animals

    The landscaped treatment area may also offer new natural play areas.

    Have your say

    · Onsite at a pop-up engagement: Saturday 11 November 2017 2pm – 4pm

    · Online at: www.sydneywatertalk.com.au

    Feedback closes 30 November 2017


    Next steps:

    If a landscaped stormwater treatment area is supported by the community, Sydney Water and Inner West Council will work closely to include the stormwater landscaping in Council's Master Plan for Hoskins Park. Council is currently developing the Master Plan based on community feedback. A draft Master Plan will be publicly exhibited in 2018 for further community feedback.

    At the end of 2016 Council asked the community how best to manage the future use and facilities of the Dulwich Hill parks. We have listened and summarised what you had to say in a report. Read the feedback report here We are now using this to develop the master plans / plans of management. Look out for the draft plans that will be on exhibition in 2018.
