Proposal Concerns

We have major concerns about the impact of the proposed development on Forest Park and the local infrastructure, removing useful (and heritage) public recreation space, and overshadowing of Forest Park…

Proposal Impact

The Forest Park Planning Proposal represents a large development which will significantly change the current Local Environment Plan (LEP) zoning for this land and decrease open space for Epping…

How You Can Help

Save Epping’s Forest Park action Group ask you to help prevent this overdevelopment in Epping, to help keep this public recreation land for future generations to enjoy and to protect Forest Park…

About Forest Park, Epping

Forest Park is a family-friendly reserve in Epping, with a playground, picnic areas, tall trees and plenty of open space, it's a lovely spot for a family day out.

Tucked away off Blaxland Road and not far from the busy traffic of Epping Road, this sunny and peaceful family park boasts a surprising amount of space. There’s plenty of shade if the weather is warm, while there’s no shortage of open, grassy space to explore. You can set up for a game of soccer or cricket (albeit on a sloping pitch), or just let energetic kids run themselves ragged. Take a moment to help us protect this local piece public recreation space. Please HAVE YOUR SAY to help SAVE Epping’s Forest Park.

Protecting our Local Heritage for Epping's Current and Future Generations

A path runs diagonally through the gently sloping park from Blaxland Road to Forest Grove. The path takes you to the park’s centrepiece, a war memorial, which is the site of an annual Anzac Day dawn service.

This memorial was actually first erected in 1922 on the corner of Beecroft Road, to remember those who gave their lives in the First World War. But the monument was obstructing local traffic and, in 1937, it was moved to its current location in Forest Park.

Heritage Site - Forest Park Anzac Memorial

In 2015, Forest Park venue was packed with almost 4000 veterans, families, and representatives of local primary and high schools wishing to pay their respects to our country.The obelisk in Forest Park was built in 1922 as a World War I memorial at the intersection of Bridge St and Beecroft Rd. The names of the 24 World War I soldiers who were killed, nine of them at Gallipoli, are commemorated on the memorial. Among the wreaths laid on it by Epping RSL Sub-Branch members, schools and Bennelong federal Liberal MP John Alexander, Epping state Liberal MP Damien Tudehope and Parramatta City Councillor Pierre Esber, were two bunches of colourful flowers. 1000 plus people have signed our Petition to help preserve this local heritage site.
