Pioneers Memorial Park

Pioneers Memorial Park in Leichhardt is a peaceful park and one of Leichhardt’s most beautiful green spaces. The recreational park is steeped in rich history, perhaps captured by its unique name.

The park, formerly a Balmain Cemetery, got its present name in 1941 when it was designed to honour the district’s pioneers.

One of the fascinating things about the park is that in its heyday, more than 10,000 burial ceremonies were held on-site. The burials, spanning more than 24 different religions, best capture the diversity of this park. Today, the park is a place of quiet reflection and contemplation.

It is also a family-friendly destination, so bring the kids along for a fantastic day out. Start with a visit to the Pioneers Memorial Park Playground. This play area includes various play equipment, such as a ropes course, swings, and slides. For the kids who want more of an adventure, nothing compares to the exhilaration of the fort and bridge climb. The best part about this park section is that it is fitted with soft flooring to protect the little ones in case of an accident. The play area is also shaded, making it popular with visiting families.

A tour of Pioneers Memorial Park is incomplete without visiting the Bicentennial Rotunda, a popular location for outdoor events. Depending on the time of your visit, you may be able to catch a free movie or, during Christmas, Carols at the park.

Also, look out for the Memorial built to honour those who lost their lives in service to the country during World War I.

Pioneers Memorial Park is easily accessible using Norton Street in Leichhardt.
