Cunningham Park to officially open at Gregory Hills this weekend

A brand new park will be officially unveiled in Gregory Hills this weekend.

Various dignitaries will stop by the suburb tomorrow (Saturday, March 9) for the ribbon-cutting ceremony to open Cunningham Park.

The new park, which features a variety of sporting facilities, is located at the corner of Water Gum Road and Limelight Circuit.

Dart West Developments general manager David Taylor said he was proud the company had delivered such a fine park.

"In a mater-planned community like Gregory Hills, it's important to provide the community with ample amenities for families of all ages to get outdoors and enjoy their community," he said.

"Cunningham Park will be home to many sporting teams, young and old.

"These essential pieces of infrastructure are what make a community come together as a whole and really hum together."

Cunningham Park features two full-sized football fields, a cricket pitch, training nets, two full-sized basketball courts and four full-size netball courts.

Additionally there is a fully-equipped outdoor gym and modern amenities complex.

The park was named after Brother Clarence Cunningham, a Marist Brother and former principal of St Gregory's College, John Therry College and Mount Carmel Catholic College.

Cunningham Park was delivered by Dart West Developments as part of the Gregory Hills Voluntary Planning Agreement with Camden Council.

The park will be owned and managed by Camden Council.
