Bicentennial Park - Things to do in Sydney Olympic Park
We are improving the pathway through Badu Mangroves by raising bridge to allow for rising tides. The bridge will be closed from early January to late March 2017. Alternative routes are available for both pedestrians and cyclists.
Bicentennial Park is a diverse natural asset combining the Badu Mangroves wetlands on Homebush Bay with 40 hectares of beautiful parklands in Sydney featuring gentle hills, lakeside meadows and soothing green vistas. This Sydney park features playgrounds, picnic shelters, BBQ, toilets and several car parks. It’s open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset.
Things to do at Bicentennial Park:
- Enjoy a picnic on the grassy banks of Lake Belvedere or under a shady shelter
- Have your own sausage sizzle using the free electric BBQ
- Explore the adventure playground with its sandpit, slide, climbing frame, swings and shade sails
- Walk, run or cycle along the shared pathways
- Take your dog for a walk (on-leash at all times in this park)
