Western Sydney Parklands

Set in the heart of Western Sydney, the Western Sydney Parklands comprises 5280 hectares that streches 27km from Blacktown in the north to Leppington in the south. It is 16 times the size of Sydney's Centennial Parklands.

Western Sydney Parklands is a place for people of all backgrounds to meet, celebrate, learn, play and appreciate the environment. The Parklands is a venue for communities to create and manage a new sustainable future on the Cumberland Plain.

Entry to the Parklands is free and we are open every day of the year!

Your Venues explains how to access each site.

Temporary track closures

Northern Parklands Track (Dean Park)

As part of improvement works to the north of the Western Sydney Parklands, we’re upgrading existing tracks and building new tracks between the M7 Motorway and Richmond Road.

This means these tracks, accessed from Richmond Road and Quakers Hill Parkway, will be closed to the public from Monday 20 January 2014 as work starts on a brand new sealed running track including a bridge across Eastern Creek. A new entry feature and sealed car park is also being constructed off Richmond Road to improve the area for park visitors.

Prospect Dam Cycleway

The Sydney Catchment Authority is undertaking a major upgrade of Prospect Dam. Due to this, the grounds of the dam and the cycleway will  be closed until 31 December 2014. An alternative cycleway is now in place and can be viewed here.
