BLACKTOWN Council has earmarked 27 additional small reserves to help pay for the "mega parks" mayor Len Robinson wants to build in each of the five wards.
The new list follows investigation of the 152 reserves smaller than 0.15 hectares, on top of 28 on the original list unveiled earlier this year.
Sites with play equipment or with sufficient open space will not be rezoned.
The council could receive $9.2 million for the 27 extra sites.
Labor councillor Stephen Bali has described it as a money-making exercise as Liberal councillors and independent Russ Dickens endorsed the report.
"There are landlocked sites that are 10-20 square metres that [are] not even on the lists," he said.
Cr Robinson asked for a list of those sites for the council to look at selling to neighbours.
Other Labor councillors called for better community consultation as the original list continued to dwindle.
Myall Street, Doonside, became the fifth reserve to be taken off the list last week after residents convinced councillors it was well-used, with resident Jill Finch describing it as the "perfect gathering place".
Helena Crescent, Emerton, could be next. Lionel Gomez presented a petition of 183 signatures last week to save the road island, which is a community gathering place.
Liberal councillor Karlo Siljeg said he would stand by his word and vote to keep any small reserve if residents demonstrated a need for it.
