Bungarribee is a new 240-hectare regional parkland located in western Sydney.  Bungarribee has a unique landscape setting, made up of a number of different physical, environmental and cultural layers.
The overall design has focused on four key elements – preserving the heart, a significant native grassland and Cumberland Plain woodlands; establishing identity to the precinct; providing the opportunity for varied uses; and, providing accessibility to this significant public open space for the local and wider community. 
The project includes a significant regional play space with a 14m high climbing structure, water play, flying foxes, swings, slides and nature-based play elements.  The play space is complimented with picnic shelters, barbecues, public amenities and shared-use pathway networks all logically and carefully inserted to ensure the preservation of the existing site character.   The landscape design also includes two urban forests that provide scale and references the previous runway and military use of the site.
The project has received the following industry awards:
