Gladstone Park, as well as all Inner West parks are still open. However, playgrounds, skate parks and outside gyms in public places have now closed; in line with advice from the Australian Government.
Gladstone Park is a beautiful location on the hilltop at the corner of Darling Street and Booth Street in Balmain. This quiet park is best known for its natural beauty where blossoming trees and spectacular views are a popular attraction for both locals and visitors in the area.
The park shares borders with Balmain Public School and Gladstone Park Bowling Club.

There is also a playground at the park, with the shaded play area having soft play structures to ensure that the kids have a safe place to play. Gladstone Park also has a basketball court on site for older kids and adults.
During your visit, head on over to the Gladstone Park Bowling Club. This is a favourite for visitors in larger groups who wish to compete in a game of lawn bowls. Make sure you visit the established gardens on site at the park as well.
Other amenities at the park include picnic tables and toilets – located right outside the park. Dogs are allowed here, and the park is open to visitors of all ages. While there is no cafe on location, there are plenty of places to eat near the park.
Parking is available on Booth Street, and the park is easily accessible using public means.
It is important to note that Gladstone Park Balmain is generally busy during lunch hour as kids from the nearby Balmain Primary School use the park’s ground as their playground.
