Party in the Park: Parramatta celebrates local upgrades with outdoor cinema series

Grab your popcorn and a comfortable spot to celebrate the official opening of three City of Parramatta Council parks with a series of outdoor movie nights this school vacation.

From April 15-17, the events will take place in the recently renovated Dundas Park in Dundas Valley, the John Wearn Reserve in Carlingford and the Gallery Gardens in Old Toongabbie. There is also live music as well as film snacks and drinks at every event.

“I am delighted that we can celebrate so many local improvements here in our great city,” said Cr Bob Dwyer, Lord Mayor of Parramatta City.

“Outside areas play an important role in the health, wellbeing and prosperity of our community. It is therefore important that these spaces meet the needs of our growing population.

“The council is committed to modernizing our parks and playgrounds to ensure that the community has access to world class facilities near where we live in our area.

“These movie nights are a wonderful opportunity for us to come together in a COVID-safe manner and celebrate our fantastic facilities.”

Upgrades at Dundas Park include the new $ 2.1 million Alan Hayes Pavilion, as well as new solar lighting around the Foodpath Circuit and two new street libraries.

The John Wearn Reserve was renovated for $ 5.2 million and has a new safari-themed play area, toiletries, parking lot, dog park, BBQ facilities, a stage with seating in the amphitheater, and more.

As part of their upgrade, Gallery Gardens will receive resurfaced tennis courts, modernized tennis facilities, a new playground, fitness station, seating, signage, and an expanded area for bush regeneration for $ 830,000.
