  • My favourite park. I’m here almost every day. There is ample space for you to walk, bike, or picnic. The bats smell but what can you do 😂 Police patrol periodically through here too so you know that you’re safe. The park is always clean with no rubbish left and the lawns always mowed.
  • An amazing park right next to Parramatta city with a focus on the river winding alongside it. There’s a cafe, some decent play equipment and plenty of beautiful walks with some surprise views, monuments, bridges and… an old Government Dairy Farm along the way. Can be a bit confusing as to where you’re meant to walk if you’re a pedestrian but that’s only a minor nuisance. The park could use a bit of TLC but overall it’s great place to visit for recreation or exercise.
