Moore Park must be managed for its recreational opportunities and I am concerned that its poorer cousin status could encourage the new Greater Sydney Parklands that is to take over from the Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust to use Moore Park as an income generator or transfer it to the powerful SCG trust.
I met with the minister last week to urge him to ensure that the new trust is tasked with defending the parklands from encroachment and alienation and has a strong local community voice. I also stressed the need for the new trust to deliver the Moore Park Master Plan 2040, particularly the removal of event parking on the grasslands, and argued for halving the size of the golf course to deliver much needed public green open space for expanding populations in the surrounding neighbourhoods.
