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.
Western Sydney Parklands Trust is always working hard to improve facilities for our Parklands visitors. For more information about work being completed, visit our Parklands Projects page.
Bungarribee Track between GWH & Eastern Rd closed for sealing from 7 July
Great news – as part of the Parklands 5 Year Activation Plan the Western Sydney Parklands is rolling out the next phase of track sealing in Bungarribee, between the Great Western Highway and Eastern Road.
Many residents and users of the Parklands Track have requested that the existing gravel sections be sealed. Work began on Monday 7 July and is scheduled to be complete and open at the end of July 2014, weather permitting. To allow this work to occur the existing track will be closed for this period of time. During construction every effort will be made to minimize inconveniences.

Note, work is still being carried out on the creek bridge crossing and Richmond Rd car park which are scheduled to be completed by the end of July, weather permitting, and includes 21 new car spaces with accessible car spaces, allowing visitors to park and ride or walk with their family.
