On Friday 17th July, the Minister for Planning approved a $10 million listing of Callan Park in a newly formed Greater Sydney Parklands agency. This places Callan Park alongside sites like Centennial Park.
Callan Park used to be a psychiatric hospital and is located on the harbour’s edge on the north bank near Leichhart. This development has been approved after a 20 years of campaigning by stakeholders and the local community.
This record $10 million funding will be used to deliver the Landscape Structure Plan which aims to make Callan Park a more beautiful and useable space by restoring heritage buildings and landscapes.
