COVID-19 update - 28 July 2021
We’ve closed Auburn Botanic Gardens and parts of Central Gardens (Merrylands West) to keep our community safe. You can still walk through Central Gardens, but the animal enclosure and other enclosed spaces are closed. Central Gardens tennis courts remain open. All other parks and reserves are still available for exercise.

Pesticide Use Notification Plan
The Draft Pesticide Use Notification Plan (PDF, 188KB) has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Pesticides Regulation 2017 (the Regulation).
The Plan sets out how Cumberland City Council will notify members of the community of pesticide applications it makes or allows to be made to public places that it owns or controls.
For the purpose of this Plan, the definition of a pesticide will be the same as defined under Section 5 of the Pesticides Act 1999.
