The City of Sydney through its contractors, Regal Innovations, began its works to improve the park land in Palmerston Ave in late July. It should be finished by the end of the year. The plan is multifaceted. It will provide a greener space, remove noxious weeds, improve drainage and allow people to move around more easily. 

The result will be better access along Palmerston Ave with new stairs, a concrete path, handrails, pram ramps and more welcoming entry points. A larger entry plaza to the light rail station will be a feature.

More native plants and grasses will enhance biodiversity. And new seating, a bubbler and a tap will make the space more pleasant for people wanting to spend some time outdoors.
