Parramatta Park is 85 hectares of green open space featuring historic sites and attractions, sports fields and ovals, established gardens and remnant bushland, picnic spots and playgrounds, memorials and monuments, waterways and wildlife, cycleways and walking tracks.
The Crescent, the Park’s natural amphitheatre hosts major concerts, music festivals and iconic events during the Crescent Summer Series from December to February. Cultural festivals like Diwali and charity events including the Mother’s Day Classic are among the other highlights on our annual calendar.
Visitors can book a guided tour of convict-era buildings or explore the Park’s pre-colonial and colonial sites, Aboriginal heritage, or historic monuments at their own pace.
Parramatta Park has welcomed guests from Sydney and beyond for 160 years. It was awarded a World Heritage listing in 2010 and today receives over 2.1 million visits annually.
It is managed by the Parramatta Park Trust, which was established on 6 August 1858.
In 2018 we celebrate 160 years as a public park.
