Sydney Parks

Sydney is home to more than 400 parks and green spaces where the public can retreat and unwind.

A number of these spaces are award-winning parks that have long provided both locals and visitors with a chance to enjoy the tranquillity Sydney has to offer away from all the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Best Sydney Parks, Dog & Nice Big Kids Parks For a Picnic & With a BBQ




Hyde Park is one of the most popular parks in Sydney, in part because it is the country’s oldest public parkland. With more than 15 hectares of open spaces right in the city, there is every reason to explore this wonderful park.

Look out for The Archibald Fountain, which is one of the park’s most stunning features. Whether you want to set up a picnic, roll on the grass with the kids or soak in the mid-morning sun as you catch up on your favourite book, this is the perfect park to visit.

Visit the Sydney Olympic Park in the Western-Sydney for an outdoor adventure of a lifetime. This park also has beautiful outdoor spaces where you can enjoy a picnic with the little ones.

For those in search of solitude, why not try the Chinese Garden of Friendship in Darling Harbour. Not only is this the chance to appreciate the Chinese architectural style, but it is also a serene place to enjoy a quiet and accessible getaway.

Parramatta is one of Sydney’s popular areas whose rich history and beautiful views makes it a favoured destination. Visit this spot to learn more about its convict history.

Paddington Reservoir Gardens stand out because they have combined historic fixtures with modern fittings, making the park quite unique. The well-manicured gardens, coupled with the sunken garden and striking graffiti, add to the park’s allure as a family-friendly attraction.

Wendy’s Secret Garden is also a hidden gem that is totally worth a visit. This oasis of tranquillity is located close to Lavender Bay and is a natural work of art that boasts winding trails, spectacular views and great picnic spots.
