• Field Sports: There are two sporting fields onsite, Hillier Oval and clubhouse, and the Canterbury League Site. These fields are used for junior rugby league and sporting events. They are also used informally by local residents and schools, however, they have a low rate of use.
• Netball Courts & Facilities: The site houses 32 netball courts and supporting facilities which have been recently renovated and are exclusively used by the Liverpool City Netball Association. The courts are currently single purpose and only used for netball training and competition.
Woodward Park is located adjacent to the commercial core of Liverpool and is bordered by busy roads and heavy traffic volumes, with 3 vehicle access points
The north-eastern corner of the site (Memorial Avenue and Copeland Street/Hume Highway) is located 800m from Liverpool Station and the site is directly serviced by 12 bus stops and 14 bus routes which connect to Parramatta, Miller, Ingleburn, Campbelltown, Carnes Hill, Austral, Bringelly, Narellan and Casula.
Woodward Park is bordered by intersections between the three major road thoroughfares which service Liverpool, surrounding suburbs and key highway networks. The site is bordered at the south-east by the major junction between Hoxton Park Road, the Hume Highway/Copeland Street and Newbridge Road. This heavy intersection features 6-8 lane roads and is a busy interchange between routes to the Sydney CBD, Canberra, North-western, South-western and Western Sydney.
The entrance to the site, at the north-east corner, is at the intersection of the Hume Highway and Memorial Avenue. Access to the site via this entrance point is the most direct walking and driving route from the CBD. Vehicle access to the site includes the minor two-lane street off Memorial Avenue and the three-lane access via Gill Avenue near the Ambulance site off Hoxton Park Road.
There are seven designated parking areas on site, directly servicing facilities including the KU Preschool and Autism Centre, the Whitlam Leisure Centre, Ambulance site and netball courts.
Woodward Park is home to a range of sport, education, community and recreation facilities that are used by community groups and organisations in and around Liverpool.
The site is strategically located in relation to public transport, services and employment. It is 800 metres from Liverpool Railway Station and a short walk to the commercial core, medical precinct, major retail centre, residential developments and open space.
The existing Woodward Park features over 25 hectares of developed land and remnants of natural space. Woodward Park is mostly bordered by high-density residential zones which are interspersed with public recreation areas, and are expected to experience large scale high-rise residential development over the next ten to twenty years, resulting in a wave of new residents and demand for facilities.
