Western Sydney Parklands is managed by Western Sydney Parklands Trust, a self-funded NSW Government agency. Its role is to maintain the Parklands and expand the facilities on offer to visitors.
Two per cent of the Parklands is devoted to business hubs which generate the income needed for the other 98 per cent of wide-open space, bushland, wetlands, sports fields, recreation areas, playgrounds and tourist attractions.
Business hubs are currently located at Eastern Creek, Bringelly Road, and Horsley Drive. Approval for a new business hub at Fifteenth Ave is underway – development consent has been granted. More about business hubs
The Trust generates some of its income through its commercial leases, all of which were designed to increase the activities and attractions the Parklands offers to visitors and nearby communities. Current lessees include Tree Top Adventure Park, Eastern Creek Raceway, Sydney Dragway, Calmsley Hill City Farm, Cricketer's Arms Hotel, Amoretti's Café, Raging Waters and Sydney Zoo, which is opening soon at Bungaribee.

The Parklands has an urban farms precinct which the Trust is currently expanding. The farms are located in Horsley Park and the precinct is earmarked to become a tourism destination with a farm gate trail. More about urban farms
