I've been coming here since i was a small child and it never fails to meet expectations. If it's meeting at the restaurant or coffee shop or having a picnic, there is lots of room and quiet or not. Just seek it. Take your bikes,...More

Not the biggest in Australia, but still pretty large. Includes two sport arenas and the showgrounds. Quite a large duck pond, a swamp, and a delightful rose garden.

I'd always regarded this park as one of Sydney's highlights, and the parklands and gardens are still beautifully maintained, but last time I visited 3 naked joggers (!) chased me into bushland there and made me listen to them singing Abba hits.More

Hi Sharon F, This does sound very strange. Our rangers who patrol the park on a regular basis, diligently respond and document incidents in the park. However, they are not aware of such incidents. Please contact rangers immediately if you feel unsafe or see dangerous...More
