A comprehensive masterplan design for Parry Park by Environmental Partnership adopted by Environmental Partnership adopted by Canterbury Bankstown Council in 2018. For more details, please refer Parry Park Masterplan Development .   The masterplan identified a series play opportunities to the Parry Park playspace.

In 2019, Canterbury Bankstown Council commissioned Environmental Partnership with the inputs from Water Cycle Engineering Alluvium to develop the playspace as a nature-inspired and inclusive playground for all-abilities and full age range, which includes Hero Play, Water & Sand Play, Landform Play and Bush Play. Two swales were also introduced to the playground to capture partial storm water runoff from Koala Road as part of nature educational play elements. The swales and the playspace generally coordinate with and facilitate the future opportunity of canal naturalisation and wetland creation identified by the masterplan.
