Text description provided by the architects. Pirrama Park at Pyrmont, designed collaboratively by Hill Thalis, Aspect Studios and CAB, brings the formerly alienated public land of the Water Police site at Pyrmont into the public realm. The collaborative design for the City of Sydney began with the Master Plan and continued through detailed design and documentation from 2005-2008.

The park’s plan contrasts the natural and man-made, which are interpreted by a distinct ground plane and planting. As a result the spatial experience of the Point and Green, the Grove, the Sheltered Bay, the Playground and the Community Square, combine to give the park its experiential richness.

The architectural elements include a steel stair hung from the sandstone cliff face and three shade pavilions. A canopy and belvedere help define a landscaped square at the harbour edge termination of Harris Street.
