Edmondson Park: A Community on the Move

Edmondson Park - ALAND

As Australia grapples with a chronic housing crisis, the spectacular growth of Edmondson Park, in Sydney’s south-west, is a glimpse of what the future could look like.

In just 16 years this former farming area has become one of Sydney’s fastest-growing urban enclaves – and one with excellent services, shops and transport infrastructure.

Edmondson Park’s population, currently just over 12,000, is forecast to grow rapidly over the next 20 years, reaching 26,000 by as early as 2031.

Studies reveal that Edmondson Park is attracting mostly young, university-educated professionals, many of whom have young children. The average age of residents is 31, well below the state average of 37; with around 30% aged 17 or under. [1]

With its mix of freestanding houses and modern apartment developments, the suburb is particularly attractive to first-home buyers, especially those with children, who apricate its green open spaces, sports facilities and nature reserves.

“This suburb is very close to the city and for people travelling to the city, this suburb is a dream,” said one resident.

“It’s very safe to walk and cycle as the streets are filled with smart electric cars and bikes driving at low speed. Having the Ed.Square shopping centre is another plus.”

Celebrating the Great Outdoors

Over the next decade the suburb is expected to welcome thousands of new residents. To maintain a high-quality urban lifestyle the authorities have allocated plenty of green space for walking and cycling.

In addition, there is more than six hectares of open green space around Ed.Square Town Centre, with cross-community links joining several other regional parklands.

“Over the next 10-15 years the suburb will become home to approximately 25,000 new residents, who will live in about 8200 homes,” according to Liverpool City Council.

“Edmondson Park will offer an urban lifestyle with plenty of open green spaces to encourage cycling and walking.”[2]

Other highlights include Edmondson Regional Park, which was created in March 2015 and covers 48 hectares. The park offers plenty of hiking and bird-watching opportunities. Highlights include remnant strands of Cumberland Plain Woodland and the endangered Cumberland plain land snail.

Recently completed Maxwell Creek Oval is part of a wider commitment to building 21st Century sports and recreational facilities across Edmondson Park. The new oval offers two rugby league pitches, a synthetic cricket pitch and football pitches. The $1 million amenities building includes high end change facilities, a canteen and equipment storage.

Positioned for Future Growth and Jobs

Located only 7kms (12 min) from Liverpool, 14kms (17 min) from Campbelltown and 20kms (20 min) from the new Western Sydney International Airport, Edmondson Park provides easy access to some of the fast-growing employment hubs in NSW.

As part of the state government’s South- West Growth Area, Edmondson Park is going through rapid change. While the region is already well supplied with schools, universities and medical facilities, new infrastructure is planned.

Western Sydney International Airport at Badgerys Creek is on track to begin operations in 2026. Once completed, the airport will be at the centre of a major new economic hub. The Western Sydney Aerotropolis will generate 200,000 new jobs in defence, logistics, aerospace, education, and research industries for local communities, including Edmondson Park.

NSW government has identified Liverpool as a Strategic Centre. Liverpool’s competitive advantages lie in the areas of health and medicine, distribution and logistics, professional services and advanced manufacturing services.

Liverpool is now regarded as Sydney’s third CBD, alongside Sydney and Parramatta, and is expected to attract new retail and services jobs to the Liverpool city centre, which is just 7kms (11 min) from Edmondson Park.

Road and rail services are being upgraded, with new bus routes added. Transport NSW has recently completed an upgrade of the Edmondson Park train station, delivering additional parking space as part of the state government’s commuter car park program.

Modern Services, Shops & Schools

Edmondson Park is one of Sydney’s fastest growing new urban neighbourhoods offering excellent services, including a local shopping centre (Ed.Square) and a mainline train station.

Residents have access to a good bus network, with services operating to Carnes Hill, Liverpool, Ingleburn, Leppington, Glenfield and Fairfield. Edmondson Park is 20kms (20 min) southeast of the new Western Sydney International Airport.

The main shopping centre, Ed.Square Town Centre, is home to around 60 retail shops and 20 restaurants and cafes, with underground parking for 900 cars. The centre contains supermarkets, bakeries, fashion boutiques, bottle shops, butchers and groceries, plus childcare centres, pharmacies, and other essential services.

There are several private and public schools nearby, including St Francis Catholic College, St Catherine of Siena Primary, William Carey Christian School, Holy Spirit Catholic School and John Edmondson High School. Older students, meanwhile, have access to the regional campuses of TAFE NSW, Western Sydney University and the University of Sydney.

The new school will include fit-for-purpose classrooms and core facilities to meet the future enrolment needs. Stage 1 will accommodate around 800 students by 2027.

Case Study: The Edmondson Collection

Work has commenced on Stage 2 of The Edmondson Collection which offers 90 apartments and generous communal gardens. Stage 1, Costello, was completed in 2021. The new ALAND development, known as Monde, is just 450 metres from Ed.Square Town Centre and the train station. All 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments offer spacious open-plan living and the latest energy-saving appliances. All come with secure underground parking, cage storage and lift access.
