With an irresistible choice of parks, Sydney Olympic Park offers extensive facilities and different vistas to suit your mood. Whether you're a first time visitor or a regular, there's always something new to discover.

There's nothing like a relaxing alfresco meal in one of our picturesque parks with superb facilities that include free BBQs, picnic shelters and shade areas, walking trails, cycle paths, playgrounds and playful fountains that encourage you to get wet - just for the fun of it! 

The Park is an urban biodiversity hotspot with significant habitats for hundreds of species of plants, birds, frogs, bats, reptiles and fish. Amongst the protected wetlands and woodlands you can bird watch, spot endangered frogs such as the endangered Green and Golden Bell frog, or just de-stress in the cool green calmness under the trees.

Please note: Well behaved dogs are welcome on a leash in all areas except for Newington Armory, Brickpit Ringwalk, unsealed paths in Narawang Wetland, and Badu Mangroves (in Bicentennial Park).  Owners should comply with the signposted 'no dogs' areas that are protecting sensitive habitats for local wildlife.There is also an off-leash dog area near P5a car park off Hill Road.
