Georges River Council wants to hear what residents would like to see at the site of the former Oatley Bowling Club.
The site, which is closed to the public, is expected to undergo remediation works this year to make it suitable for public use.
The former Oatley Bowling Club was formed in 1959 and remained in operation until 2006.
Georges River Council demolished the former clubhose in 2011 due to public health and safety concerns.
Now the council is inviting community feedback on its draft plan of management and masterplan for the former Oatley Bowling Club and Closed Road, Oatley.
Oatley MP Mark Coure encouraged the community to be part of this next stage of consultation to ensure what is delivered is valued.
"This is an important site for our community, and for it to have long-term benefits for everyone, we need people to participate in its planning," Mr Coure said.
The plan of management provides guidelines for the management of the park including how it will be used, improved and managed in the future.
It also includes a detailed landscape masterplan outlining the future vision for the park.
The draft plan of management proposes to recategorise the former bowling club site from 'Natural Area' to 'Park'.
The closed road component of the site is proposed to remain categorised as 'Natural Area'.
The land within the 'Natural Area' category will in turn be sub-categorised as 'Bushland'.
The draft plan of management was prepared following consultation with the local community to determine the most suitable use of the land for community purposes.
The masterplan will be on public exhibition from March 3 until March 31 at Georges River Civic Centre, Hurstville and Clive James libraries.
Georges River Council will host a webinar to ensure everyone has the opportunity to ask questions and have their say about the draft Plan of Management.
Under the Local Government Act councils are required to hold a public hearing into the proposed categorisation or re-categorisation of community land and this independent public hearing will be on April 20, 2021.
Remediation works are expected to be completed by August, 2021.
