The park will include 15000 trees, 4km of bike and walking paths with bridges and lookouts, multiple playgrounds, cafes, an events space and 400 parking spaces.
The $15 million project is due for completion in 2018.
“The new Bungarribee Super Park will become as iconic for Western Sydney as New York’s Central Park and London’s Hyde Park.” claims Baird.
“The last expansion of recreational facilities on this scale in Western Sydney was almost 30 years ago when Bicentennial Park at Homebush was built.”
Mr Baird made the announcement on his campaign bus tour ahead of the March 28 election where he retained his seat for NSW.

The Minister for the Environment, the Hon Robyn Parker announced that the Western Sydney Parklands Trust will be expanding its immensely popular pilot, ‘100 schools program’.
Over the next four years, the 500 schools plantings program will see 20 thousand school children plant 100 thousand trees in the Western Sydney Parklands.
Since the program began, 4000 school children from 75 schools in the western Sydney region have planted 15,000 native trees in the parklands. “By the end of the year we anticipate 5000 western Sydney schoolchildren from 100 schools will have planted 20,000 native trees and shrubs, which is a fantastic outcome for the western Sydney region,” she said. Western Sydney Parklands Trust director Suellen Fitzgerald said the school program was an important aspect of the trust’s work with the community, as the parklands played a pivotal role connecting western Sydney residents with the natural environment.

I had the chance to revisit South Korea last month for the third time in 9 months for work and was fortunate to be approached by Aiden for a portrait photography session in Hongdae.
Aiden is an American expat living and teaching English to university students in South Korea. She is also the host of QROK for BBSK Radio as well as performs in her drag persona on occasions. Aiden tells me she has previously been photographed numerous times and for this particular shoot, she was interested in exploring her capabilities in adapting to both her masculine and feminine side. Following are some of the images we captured that day:
