The Hills Shire Council is inviting you to have your say on a Draft Plan of Management for Arthur Whitling Park in Castle Hill.

The Draft Plan of Management proposes how Arthur Whitling Park, located above Castle Hill Metro Station, is to be managed and improved for a range of community purposes.  

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said it was an opportunity for residents to shape the future of one of the Hills Shire's favourite play spaces.  

"Arthur Whitling Park is perfectly located within Castle Hill CBD - close to the Sydney Metro and the retail hubs like Caste Towers,” Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said. 

“We want to hear from you on how we can maximise on this important community space. 

“This is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to working with you on creating a truly special place that can be enjoyed by all,” Mayor Byrne added.

Arthur Whitling Park was officially reopened to the public in August after it was resumed by Transport NSW [now Sydney Metro] in 2012 to facilitate the construction of the Sydney Metro Northwest and Castle Hill Station.

Upon completion of the new public transport route, the park was returned to the community by means of a 99-year lease to Council from Sydney Metro.
