Accessibility & Inclusion

We strive to provide inclusion for everyone including seniors, people with mobility, vision, hearing or intellectual disabilities to better enable the use our facilities independently, equitably and with dignity in community life.

Our Access Advisory Committee, includes staff, people from peak disability groups and consultancies, provides us with advice, recommendations, strategies and actions to ensure equitable access provisions and facilities for people with disabilities.

All major development proposals at the Park are required to be presented to this Committee who may endorse the proposal with or without the consideration of additional or appropriate access requirements.

Our Access Guidelines provide detailed guidance on accessible requirements and applies to:

  • all building works and infrastructure within the Park, providing guidance to architects, designers, venue and event operators, developers and others who are involved in the design, fit-out, planning and operations of venues or proposed developments
  • overlay for temporary events providing an understanding of the range of challenges that need to be addressed, to allow people with disabilities to be appropriately assisted to use the parklands independently, when introducing temporary events at the Park
  • parklands within the Park, providing detailed guidance and an understanding of the range of challenges that need to be addressed to allow people with disabilities to be appropriately assisted to use the parklands independently.

Assistance with the implementation of these guidelines is available from the Building Services Manager on 9714 7357.

Our Disability Inclusion Action Plan sets out to improve opportunities for people with disabilities to share fully and be included into community life.

Developed in consultation with the Sydney Olympic Park Access Advisory Committee and the wider community setting the agenda for inclusion of disability requirements in the future planning, development and management of Sydney Olympic Park.
