North Granville Community Facilities Masterplan
The North Granville Community Facilities Master Plan is a strategic document that provides a long term vision to support North Granville resident's wellbeing and liveability. The Master Plan identifies future community and recreational facilities including improvements to F.S. Garside Park and the Alfred Street Cycleway.
Stage 1 - North Granville Community Facilities Masterplan
City of Parramatta is working with the NSW Government to revitalise public spaces as part of the Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP).
As part of our commitment to the PRUAIP, Council has developed a Master Plan. The Master Plan identifies improvements to community and recreational facilities to support the future population of North Granville. The Master Plan area is bounded by Parramatta Road (south), Alfred Street (west), Gray Street (north), Onslow Street and Duck Creek (east).
Stage 1 of the Master Plan was adopted by City of Parramatta at council meeting 16 December 2019 and includes improvements to F.S. Garside Park and Alfred Street.These improvements are being funded under the NSW Government’s Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP).

Please note that the timeline on this page is indicative only until completion of the detailed concept design.
Improvements to F.S Garside Park
Council has completed site investigations across June 2020 to understand remediation, engineering and structural constraints. This information coupled with community feedback collected in March 2020 will inform the development of a draft concept design for F.S Garside Park. A second round of community consultation is also planned for September 2020 to ensure that the draft park design meets community requirements and expectations.
Alfred Street Cycleway
Council recently sought feedback relating to the draft Alfred Street Cycleway concept plan. Community consultation concluded 20 July 2020. The community feedback will be collated and reviewed to inform the final design. The consultation results will be published along with the final design in the next few weeks.
