There are several shelters at Parramatta Park available for use free of charge on a first-come first-served basis, plus three shelters available for hire. For more information, see Hire a Venue.
There are 14 barbecues in the Park available free of charge for small family gatherings. These cannot be reserved, and picnickers are asked to consider others waiting their turn by cleaning the barbecues thoroughly and clearing the space in a timely manner.
BYO gas barbecues are permitted. Heat bead or charcoal barbecues are also permitted. Used heat beads must be cooled and taken home.
During Total Fire Ban periods, only the Park’s fixed barbecues or enclosed gas barbecues are permitted for use. Heat bead or charcoal BBQs are not permitted on Total Fire Ban days. Please check the NSW Rural Fire Service website for Total Fire Ban status updates.
There are two playgrounds at Parramatta Park: a small playground ideal for younger children near the pedestrian entry at the George Street Gatehouse, and the newer Domain Creek playground, opposite the Queens Road Gatehouse on the Westmead side of the park. For more information, see Things to Do.
Toilets: Public toilets are located in the Park and include accessible toilets. See Parramatta Park map.
