Storey Park is set to become a fabulous new destination for the local community of Hornsby, Asquith and beyond! Almost 15 months after demolition works began in November 2018, a brand new park in Hornsby is now open! The park features a brand new community centre, and a fabulous fully-fenced playground for kids of all ages.

There’s lots to get excited about! The playground at Storey Park features many of the things that are important to parents…
- Fully fenced inclusive play environment that includes an adventure area allowing people of all age groups and abilities to play together
- Plenty of shade and seating
- Bike & scooter paths
- BBQ and picnic area (tables & benches)
- Accessible toilet and baby change room
- Drinking water station
- Onsite parking
It’s fully landscaped with 100 new trees, and some of the older ones have been kept too.
Janelle McIntosh, Hornsby Shire Councillor shared on her Facebook page:
‘The playground has a wonderful mix of activities for the youngest to the oldest, and suitable for all abilities.
There’s also lots of thoughtful inclusions for families such as an accessible toilet and baby change room; drinking water station and shade, lots of shade. There’s plenty of seating right near the equipment, picnic and bbq areas and a bike track around the playground. The playground is fully fenced.
The park has preserved two of the lovely old trees that many of us climbed as kids and added over 100 new trees and extensive landscaping.’
Storey Park Facilities
Storey Park Community Centre
Storey Park features a brand new state-of-the-art Community Centre, with multipurpose rooms that are be ideal for a wide range of events and activities.
Hornsby Shire Mayor Philip Ruddock said:
‘The community has waited a long time for this and there is a lot of excitement amongst our residents.
One of the most rewarding aspects of this job is to see something so important become a reality, having watched it advance from an idea on paper. This is a very special facility, as it will help us to meet the growing needs of the local community. In a world that is ever more fast-paced and fractured, it is vital that we retain these community spaces – similar to the town square and communal fireplace of old – where people can come together.
It’s hard to pick a single highlight, but I’m particularly pleased about the inclusive play area. In all of our new playgrounds we make a special effort to offer a fun space for everybody, regardless of their age or abilities, and this is no exception.’
