Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games transformed obsolete industrial and defence lands at Homebush Bay into the main precinct for the Sydney Olympic Games: a complex of major sporting venues, new housing, a new rail line and the first stages of the city’s largest regional park. The precinct was renamed Sydney Olympic Park in 2001.

Development of Sydney Olympic Park for the Olympic Games was conceived, planned and mostly funded by the state government, with private sector financing being used for the two main stadia. Since the Sydney Olympic Games, the government has sought and attracted considerable private investment to Sydney Olympic Park. This chapter overviews the post–2000 development of the Park and analyses imperatives behind this development.
