BLACKTOWN's newest tourism attraction, a $3.5 million Chinese garden, will also promote its sister city ties in China.
Western Sydney Parklands provided $3 million for the project.
Liaocheng, Blacktown's sister city in China, provided $300,000 and the rest is from Blacktown Council.
The garden was designed and built by craftsmen from China and will be handed over to the council in a special ceremony on Sunday, August 26.
On par with Sydney's Chinese Garden, it consists of a series of pavilions linked by a bridge surrounding a part of the artificial lake at Nurragingy Reserve in Doonside.
The Chinese city covered the cost of designing the 2800-square-metre Chinese garden.
A council spokeswoman said work started in January 2012 and was scheduled for completion in early September.
Darug Tribal Aboriginal Corporation secretary Sandra Lee was initially opposed to the establishment of a Chinese Garden in Nurragingy Reserve.
She only supported the project after getting an assurance the council would establish a bush tucker garden in the same reserve.
