Environment & The Great River Walk

Nepean Business Park’s vision encompasses both Employment and Environment – providing much-needed local jobs and at the same time protecting and enhancing the environment.

The Nepean Business Park’s location on the northern bank of the Nepean River with views to the Blue Mountains escarpment and proximity of the site to the Penrith Lakes Parklands, places the estate at the heart of one of Western Sydney’s most important, ecological, recreational and scenic landscapes.

The estate will include a tree-lined and landscaped drainage system that will capture valuable water for delivery into the Penrith Lakes.

The estate is 2km from Penrith CBD and adjoins the alignment of the proposed future connection of the Great River Walk (GRW) into the Penrith Lakes Parklands. This provides an opportunity to build this stretch of the GRW and to make a pedestrian/cycleway connection through the site to link to the Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC), Castlereagh Village and the rest of the Parklands.

Precinct Capital have offered to donate to the community 22,000m2 of land and to construct an extension of the Great River Walk – all at no cost to the community. The extension of the Great River Walk along the site’s boundary will provide recreational, scenic and environmental opportunities.

In addition, the estate will provide dedicated cycle and pedestrian walkway links through the estate to connect to SIRC and its existing cycle/pedestrian loop.
