Accessibility & Inclusion

Access and inclusion have been integral to the planning, design and delivery of the suburb of Sydney Olympic Park and its hosting of the 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Authority is committed to continuing this legacy.

We want to ensure that, as far as possible, the needs of people with a disability and more broadly of those with any kind of participation limitations are met so that everyone can use the Park independently, equitably and with dignity.
