Oran Park Library NSW, Australia (2019)

The heart of the Oran Park Civic Precinct, Oran Park Library provides community development and information, education and recreation.

The library precinct is a vision of three groups: Landcom, Greenfields Development Company and Camden Council. Landscape architecture is by JMD Design.

The outdoor spaces provide places to rest and meet, with wide green space in Perich Park opposite the plaza.

Street Furniture Australia supplied Classic Galleria Seats to the plaza – including in front of the Library and Council Chambers.

The seats and Arqua Fountains are also installed in Perich Park.

The Galleria Seats are surface fixed, or mounted on concrete plinths, with our standard plinth mount bracket.

Cow sculptures in Perich Park: a nod to the pastoral history of the site.
