Griffith Park

We are delighted to share that Collins and Turner, Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture and WSP Specialist Indigenous Services have won the Griffith Park Precinct and Community Centre design competition run by Canterbury Bankstown Council with City Lab.

The design knits Griffith Park into Bankstown centre’s established framework of streets and places to interlink the revitalised public space with a diversity of cultural and commercial activities and opportunities, bringing the life of the street through the precinct.

A series of rills, rain gardens, and wetlands will structure the park, linking it to past connections to Salt Pan Creek and a strong First Nations heritage and identity.

The community centre forms a soft, welcoming southern edge. Spaces for movement, gathering, meetings, and learning are unified beneath a dramatic sweeping roof – a contemporary verandah conceived as a richly coloured three-dimensional tapestry, an architectural celebration of one of Western Sydney’s most vibrant multicultural communities.
