Parramatta Park, Parramatta

Parramatta Park receives over 1.7 million visits annually and is one of the 11 historic places that together form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage property. It is managed by the Parramatta Park Trust.

The park was gazetted as a public park on 6 August 1858 when the first Trust was created. In 2008 we celebrated 150 years as a public park.

Parramatta Park covers an area of 85 hectares and includes The Crescent, Old Government House, The Dairy Cottage, Parramatta Observatory site, Bath House, Boer War Memorial, Lady Fitzroy Memorial, cultural and natural heritage areas including approximately 10 hectares of remnant Cumberland Plain vegetation.

  • Lively place. Lots of Indian migrants. Visible from the vibrant culture and mix of shops selling all kinds of Indian stuff. The park in itself is huge and a lovely place to hangout with kids. Specially over year end eve when they have a spectacular fireworks display. Even a bit of rain doesn't dampen the Aussie spirit.
  • A nice place to drive or walk or cycle around, lots of nice little private places to be found if you want to take a girlfriend on romantic walk. Well kept and safe to bring the family. The water is safe to swim in, up around the small green bridge if it hasn't rained for a while.
