The proposed $500 million park in central Sydney’s inner west is being billed as a “once in a lifetime” experience for tourists.
But some critics have questioned whether it will actually help visitors.
The project is due to be completed by 2019 and has been hailed as a key part of Sydney’s rebirth.
But critics have also raised concerns about the long-term effects of the park.
The project will have a huge impact on the area, says Tom Anderson, the head of the NSW Museum of Art.
“The park is going to be very, very central in the central core, so that’s going to have a tremendous impact on our urban centres,” he said.
“[The park] will affect the whole city, it will affect many different parts of the city.”
But Mr Anderson said the project was a positive step for Sydney.
“I think it’s great that the city is looking at a new development project for the CBD.
It’s an important project and I think we’ve got a fantastic city in Sydney,” he told ABC Radio Sydney.
Mr Anderson said he was proud of the work the city was doing on the project.
