Nepean River

The Nepean River is our region’s greatest natural asset and a much-loved recreational destination for residents and visitors. Several projects are underway to improve amenity, provide open space, and create opportunities to meet, relax, explore, play and be active.

Our Master Plan

The "Our River" Master Plan was developed in consultation with the local community to provide Penrith City Council with a strategic framework for the management of the river reach and associated infrastructure. 

Nepean River, Our River

The Nepean River is the main waterway that runs through the Penrith Local Government Area (LGA). We created a video series to highlight its importance and the efforts Penrith City Council and Camden Council take to protect the water quality.

Tench Reserve

The revitalisation of Tench Reserve at the Nepean River continues with a new $10 million open space park to be developed and delivered by the NSW Government in partnership with Penrith City Council, key stakeholders and the local community.

Vegetation Management

The Nepean River is our region’s greatest natural asset and Penrith City Council is committed to protecting the river and keeping it healthy so that current and future residents can enjoy and share in its beauty.

Regatta Park

A $24-million upgrade is set to transform Regatta Park at the Nepean River into the new focal point for nature, leisure and recreation and further strengthen Penrith’s position as Western Sydney’s most liveable city.

Police Cottage

The historic Police Cottage at Emu Plains has been transformed into a vibrant dining destination, following an adaptive reuse of the site into a cafe and restaurant, to enhance our connection to the Nepean River.
