We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this Land, the Dharug people, and their continued connection to Country.
We pay our respects to Elders from yesterday to tomorrow.
We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Blacktown City where the flannel flowers still grow proud and strong.
We will walk softly on this land and open our hearts to Country as the Dharug people have for tens of thousands of years.

Riverstone Youth Precinct mural commission

Blacktown City Council has commissioned local Western Sydney artist Cameron Marbus to design and paint new murals to express the vibrancy and energy of the Riverstone youth precinct in Riverstone Park.

The youth precinct include a basketball court, outdoor fitness equipment, parkour, outdoor ping pong, hopscotch and handball, as well as spaces to socialise and hang out.

Cameron grew up in Riverstone and has done various street art murals in the area.

His artworks for the skate park are scheduled to be completed by end of February 2022.
