SEVERE WEATHER EVENT - April 2022

A severe weather event occurring across Greater Sydney is currently impacting conditions in our Park.

Western Sydney Parklands may be subject to increased rainfall and high winds that could cause flooding, fallen trees and hazardous conditions for visitors. These conditions are on top of the recent significant rainfall across Sydney that has impacted the regular maintenance of our lawns, garden beds and bushland areas. Please be mindful that the tracks and trails network may be more severely affected, particularly in the northern Parklands tracks around Eastern Creek.

The safety of our park users is paramount. Please rethink your visit to our Parklands during this time and check this page regularly for updates on closures.

If you are in our Parklands, please be aware of your surroundings and do not go near or enter flooded water bodies and cross flooded roadways. As always, our rangers are here to help so please follow their directions and take note of emergency signage. If you need assistance, please contact our dedicated ranger on 0459 883 834. Remember, if it is an emergency call 000 before calling the rangers.
