Formed in the 2000 from the merger of Concord and Drummoyne Councils, the City of Canada Bay Council is located in Sydney’s inner west, about 6-12km from Sydney’s CBD. With its 36km of waterfront, the area is known for its picturesque landscapes and vibrant communities.
The City of Canada bay Council serves over 96,000 residents, providing and maintaining facilities and services for residents, including over 190 parks, recreational areas and sports facilities.
The $84 million Concord Oval community and sports precinct is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the City of Canada Bay.
This new recreation project has been four years in the making, with the last major upgrade in 1985.
Open in January 2023, the precinct provides the community with:
• Green, open spaces
• An indoor recreation centre with a gym, multipurpose sports courts, and group fitness rooms
• Rooms for community programs, activities, and functions
• Match day facilities for local sports clubs
• A Centre of Excellence for the Wests Tigers.
The Redevelopment of Concord Oval is proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with the Australian Government, the City of Canada Bay, and Wests Tigers.
On 18 November 2023, the $8.7 million McIlwaine Park upgrade was completed, proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with the City of Canada Bay.
The upgrade has transformed the foreshore park with a new beach area and sandstone seawall, discovery rockpools, picnic shelters, barbecues, and more.
This is a fantastic new space to connect with nature, relax, and catch-up with friends and family alongside the Parramatta River.
