Cooks Riverside Parklands upgrade

Inner West Council is implementing a 10-year plan to improve the Cooks River Parklands – a connected series of open spaces that form the northern corridor of the lower Cooks River.

The current upgrade includes general park improvements, playground upgrade, and bio-retention stormwater treatment systems. Glascott was awarded the project with a scope of works that entails:

  • Upgrade to the existing Steel Park playground, creating a new all abilities play space and social hub including nature play elements, new shelter, seats, paths, fencing, and planting.
  • Construction of two swale drain type stormwater treatment systems at Steel Park North to improve the quality of stormwater draining to the Cooks River.
  • New paths to improve accessibility within Steel Park, Robinson’s Lookout, and Warren Park.



  • New lighting to part of the Cooks River shared path and Steel Park North.
  • Improve the overall park amenity and aesthetics with planting and new park furniture, and provide a new accessible pathway from Thornley Street

Works commenced in December last year, with the project expected to be complete by June 2019. Site establishment will follow along with 6-months of maintenance so that plants and vegetation can develop.
