Newington Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, with land used mainly for industrial purposes. Extensive redevelopment occurred in the late 1990s when the suburb functioned as the Olympic Athletes Village for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, providing mainly medium and high density housing. After the Paralympic Games the area was sold into private ownership and transformed into a residential suburb, with further growth following. The population grew rapidly during the late 1990s, with even greater growth between 2001 and 2006. Growth began to slow between 2006 and 2011 as less new dwellings were added to the area.
Major features of the area include Newington Marketplace, Burruwang Park, Cumberland Park, Fanny Blankers – Koen Park, Pierre deCoubertin Park and one school.
