Georges River Council is taking action following the discovery of fragments of bonded asbestos at Croot Park, Hurstville.

The council has obtained independent scientific advice, which has confirmed that there is currently no significant risk of harm to human health or the environment.

Temporary fencing has been erected to prevent access to the park while material is removed and the site is remediated.

"Georges River Council takes the matter of asbestos very seriously and will continue to work to ensure the material does not pose any risk to the community," a council spokesperson said.

"Council appreciates the community's cooperation during this time and asks that residents refrain from accessing the site while the temporary fence remains in place."
