Jury comment

Integrating ecology, play, stakeholder management, engineering and sustainable water management requirements within an existing and well-loved inner-city park is a difficult brief in any context. The collaborative approach taken to tackling these issues at Sydney Park has successfully addressed them all and led to a highly resolved, considered and thoughtful design. The project beautifully expresses the forms, shapes, context, ecology and management of water, while also focusing on people, place, habitat and ecology. Diverse users coexist easily within the park, which raises awareness of the value of well-managed, well-designed, functional and valuable inner-city green space.

This latest stage in a significant urban renewal project is well conceived and executed. The result is a nationally significant green infrastructure project that responds to the needs of the local community and delivers an educational, scientifically rigorous and enjoyable place.
