The Abbotsbury Precinct, in the centre of the Parklands, takes in Lizard LogThe DairyCalmsley Hill City Farm and Plough and Harrow

A new walking and cycling track to connect Calmsley Hill City Farm and Plough and Harrow East was first identified in the Western Sydney Parklands Plan of Management in 2010. This link is the final section of track to be delivered within this part of the Parklands to provide the much-needed continual walking and cycling connection from Lizard Log to Plough and Harrow via The Dairy.



The project was first initiated in 2015 when Western Sydney Parklands Trust (WSPT) prepared a Landscape and Linking Plan for the Abbotsbury Precinct.

During community consultation undertaken during 2015 and 2021, there was general support from the community for the new track. There were also concerns raised from residents directly adjacent to the Parklands around potential anti-social behaviour, privacy considerations, and potential noise impacts to their properties.

In 2020 WSPT became part of Greater Sydney Parklands (GSP).

GSP addressed these concerns in an updated concept design by proposing a revised alignment which provides a greater buffer space to these adjacent residential properties, and incorporates landscaping treatments including new tree planting, signage and fencing.

About the new track

  • 1.5 kilometre track for pedestrians and cyclists connecting Calmsley Hill City Farm with Plough and Harrow East designed to take advantage of the great natural views across Western Sydney Parklands to Sydney CBD
  • Extensive planting of native trees, shrubs and grasses
  • The track is delivering on a key management priority for the Abbotsbury Precinct outlined in the Western Sydney Parklands Plan of Management 2030
