The Greater Sydney Commission is inviting local councils in Greater Sydney and the Central Coast to submit applications for the 2016-17 Metropolitan Greenspace Program.
The Program is designed to support a healthier environment, to improve access to recreation and exercise, encourage people to get together and support walking and cycling connections across districts.
This year the Commission has aligned the Program to the priorities in its draft District Plans.
Environment Commissioner Rod Simpson said the program is part of the effort to deliver the Green Grid for Greater Sydney, a key action in district plans and the regional plan, A Plan for Growing Sydney.
"A connected network of green spaces is a key part of building great places for people to live and these projects will contribute to more productive, sustainable and liveable local communities," Rod said.
Since 1990, the Metropolitan Greenspace Program has provided $41 million for over 600 projects in partnership with councils for the benefit of communities.
Successful projects recently completed include:
Councils can submit their applications online until 31 March 2016.
