Discovering Parramatta North Open Day

Discovering Parramatta North Open Day

On Friday 26 and Saturday 27 May 2017, UrbanGrowth NSW, opened the historic Parramatta North site to the community. Visitors to the site were able to see some of the restoration work being undertaken on heritage buildings, and to view first-hand the archaeological excavation works in progress and the artefacts found on the site.

The event proved popular, with over 350 people visiting the site over the two days.

Visitors were able to enjoy food and drink provided by our community partners, Liverpool Community Connections and the Lions Club of Carlingford-Dundas.

Representatives from Parramatta Female Factory Friends and North Parramatta Residents Action Group also had displays on the day, and shared their thoughts about UrbanGrowth NSW’s future plans with visitors to the site. And the Parramatta Light Rail Project Team was present, showing off their model light rail carriages and explaining the project to people.

Take a look at the video below to see what visitors thought about the day. 


The NSW Government is working to renew about 30 hectares of Government-owned land at North Parramatta.

UrbanGrowth NSW is the masterplanner for this program of urban transformation. We are making a significant upfront investment of more than $310 million over the next 7–10 years to enable the delivery of this new precinct, which will have heritage conservation at its core.
