Sydney’s biggest summer holiday activity program

With school holidays almost upon us, Sydney Olympic Park is providing unrivalled opportunities for children of all ages, with its popular ‘Kids in the Park’ program offering activities ranging from writing workshops and skateboard clinics to circus skills and archery.

NSW Minister for Sport and Recreation Stuart Ayres said that the ‘Kids in the Park’ program provides more than 60 separate activities, many of which are low-cost or free, across the summer school holidays.

“Kids might be home from school, but keeping them active, interested and engaged is important for their health and well-being,” Mr Ayres said.

“Kids can stay active with everything from the high trapeze and high diving to gymnastics, disc golf to circus skills and BMX, while their minds can be just as active at writing workshops, crafting and digital filmmaking and exploring the weird world of science in Fizzics workshops.

“It’s great to see our major sports coming to the party, with MyHoops basketball clinics, Cricket NSW clinics and the AC Milan junior soccer camp, plus free entry for junior tennis fans with any paying adult on 12 January to the APIA International Sydney tennis tournament at the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre,” Mr Ayres said.

‘Kids in the Park’ activities run right throughout the school holidays from 20 December through to 26 January.

Kids from ages two right up to 18 are catered for with some activities specially designed for the whole family, including Sydney Olympic Park’s free outdoor movies program, Movies by the Boulevard, running from 3-18 January.

“As the Minister for Sport and Recreation I understand just how important keeping our kids healthy and active is and programs like 'Kids in the Park' provide a wide variety of opportunities to keep families active and amused these school holidays,” Mr Ayres concluded.
