A public meeting about the future of Callan Park will be hosted by Inner West Council at Leichhardt Oval on Thursday 15 February, 6.30pm.
Council will be presenting its vision for the future of the 60 hectare historic area and this meeting is a good opportunity to find out how you can help the council lobby for this important parkland and site.
In a press release, Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne noted that the site is still facing demolition by neglect despite the former Leichhardt Council submitting the Callan Park Master Plan to the NSW State Government. He added:
We are committed to a future for the site that protects its open space and heritage, provides space for recreation, and develops health, community and education facilities…As Mayor, I am committed to establishing a Trust to secure the future of Callan Park, delivering upgraded sports grounds and a new skate park, helping to make Iron Cove swimmable again, and expanding services for children and families at the Refugee Welcome Centre.
When: Thursday 15 February 2018, 6:30pm
