The $2.8 million upgrade of Penrith’s Triangle Park has begun.

The area at the end of High Street has been closed to traffic and parking since July 10, with Penrith City Council advising alternate parking arrangements are available in Woodriff Gardens or at the Paceway.

“Safe pedestrian access to and from adjacent businesses will be maintained throughout the project,” council has stated.

“Alternative parking is available at The Paceway (at the northern end adjacent to the pool) or at Woodriff Gardens.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience during construction.”
