What impact do events have on the Park community?
Sydney Olympic Park is Australia's premier major events destination. The design and construction of the Park as a major events precinct, coupled with the support of Sydney Olympic Park Authority's highly skilled and experienced Operations team and a whole of government approach to major event support, enables truly unique event experiences to take place.
To manage the traffic flows associated with these events, the Authority may impose various restrictions on access into and around the Park, possibly resulting in traffic delays and limitations to parking availability. Roads around the Park may be closed to ensure public safety, catering for increased pedestrian activity and enhanced public transport services.
Events will often bring about increased pedestrian activity, sometimes resulting in crowds and occasionally anti-social behaviour. The Authority takes pride in the Park being a highly secure destination for events, implementing a range of additional security controls, such as safety fencing, crowd management and security staff when necessary.
There may sometimes be temporary environmental impacts resulting from events, such as increased litter, amplified noise, fireworks displays, additional lighting and jet flyovers. The Authority implements management guidelines, which include strategies to minimise and resolve any impact on the environment and surrounding residential and commercial communities.
Through regular communications with the community, the Authority seeks to raise awareness of any potential impacts from events. Register to receive community alerts.
