Penrith City Council will celebrate the opening of City Park at a special community event on Saturday, March 16.

The free garden party will run from 10am until 3pm, with family-friendly activities including mini golf and face painting, a scavenger hunt, live music, food trucks, and more.

Western Sydney artists, Christine Huynh and Tammy Porter, will hold drop-in art workshops for children and residents of all ages to unleash their creativity and make their own piece of art to take home.

Residents can also have a go of spinning the prize wheel to win a $25 gift voucher to use at a participating Penrith business.

Penrith Mayor Todd Carney encouraged the local community to take the opportunity to head to City Park and enjoy a day of fun in the City Centre.

“We’re very excited to celebrate the opening of City Park with the community and showcase everything it has to offer,” Carney said.

“City Park is located on the corner of Henry and Station Streets, just outside of Westfield and a short walk from the train station, making it easy for everyone to come along and join in the festivities.

“After the event, people can finish off a great day with some shopping and a meal at one of our local restaurants and cafes.”

The park features a central lawn, 78-metre sunken rain garden, water features, amenities building with green roof, trees which will grow over time to provide natural shade, four pergolas, seating, and public artwork.

It has been open to the public since just before Christmas.
