Sanctuary pop-up park now open!

11 April 2019

Sekisui House celebrated the opening of the Sanctuary Pop-Up Park on Saturday 6 April 2019. This fantastic addition was celebrated with a community event attended by more than 1,000 people with lots of fun and activities held and enjoyed by families of Wentworth Point.

Close to A$1M has been invested in establishing and maintaining a new riverside pop-up park for residents of Wentworth Point, with developer, Sekisui House committing part of its Sanctuary project site for a fully-funded public recreation area.

Located on Hill Road on the edge of Parramatta River, Sanctuary Pop-up Park is the first new dedicated green space to be created for residents in the suburb in years.  It addresses the notable lack of available green space for all Wentworth Point residents in the suburb.

A picnic setting, dog owner facilities, bike racks and repair station, sandstone-block seating, extensive landscaping and 2,500sqm of open green space has been built into the park.

While officially temporary, the park is established on a riverfront area of the site that Sekisui House will not need to redevelop within the next five years - after which, approximately 30,000sqm of fresh open green space will have been established and opened for free use by Wentworth Point residents and visitors.

Sekisui House Australia project director, Edward Natour said the new pop-up park is a taste of parks to come for Wentworth Point residents.
