Why is this important?

Quality green, open and public space is for everyone – these spaces include parks, green spaces, plazas, libraries, streets, landscapes, museums, and public transport. Great public spaces that delight communities are especially important in growing cities and towns.

Walkable, connected and accessible public spaces promote healthier lifestyles and bring people together. A network of welcoming and connected public spaces will create communities where people love to live.

How are we tracking?

Creating better and green public spaces will take a local, place based approach. We will work with local government and communities across NSW to identify the improvements that will offer the greatest benefit to them.
