Rozelle Parklands Playing Fields

The State Government has recently opened the new Rozelle Parklands on the site of the former Rozelle Railyards where the WestConnex building works were recently completed.

When completed the Parklands will include a new floodlit rectangular playing field and an oval with associated amenity facilities. The Club Executive has been discussing the proposals with the State Government and Inner West Council and has requested priority access to the new space.

This is the only location in our area where there is any real opportunity for new playing fields to be created and we consider it critically important to our future to be provided with access to this new space. Many of our members live close to the WestConnex works and have been living with the impacts of the works for years. The Club considers it important that the new park provides facilities for local people and will continue to seek the support of the State Government and the local council for priority access to the parklands.
