The park is part of the Western Sydney Parklands, a 5280-hectare urban parkland system providing an area of open space for recreation and conservation, major built recreation precincts and infrastructure projects stretching 27 kilometres from Quakers Hill in the north to Leppington in the south. The parklands are largely ex-grazing land with isolated pockets of remnant native vegetation. Kemps Creek Nature Reserve protects one of the larger remnants in the parklands corridor. The parklands seek to provide a diverse range of recreational and cultural learning experiences, integrated with the natural and cultural values of the land.
This plan should be read in conjunction with the Kemps Creek Nature Reserve Draft Plan of Management.
