Sydney Park is a large recreational area in the inner-city area of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
The parkland is located in the suburb of St Peters, sitting along the borders of Alexandria, Newtown and Erskineville.
Ask any Sydney resident about the first thing that pops into their mind when they hear the name Sydney Park and chances are theyll tell you about the tall chimneys that rise above the former brickworks site.
The brick kilns have not been used for more than 60 years but the historic structures remain, providing an instantly recognisable landmark in the north-western corner of the park.
Howe'ver, Sydney Park is much more than just brick chimneys.
The park is in St Peters, on the fringes of the city south. The open space is made of 40 hectares of lush grass, landscaped gardens, rolling hills, meandering pathways and picturesque wetlands. Creeks flow throughout the park and attract all different types of birds. There are plenty of spacious viewing decks that are perfectly placed to make sure you can take it all in as long as you like. Sydney Park is popular for weekend picnics and its very dog friendly.
A large childrens playground will probably have the grown-ups mesmerised just as much as the kids. The tactile, one-of-a-kind playground includes many different types of equipment that will keep children entertained for hours, as well as several elements that will stimulate their senses of touch, hearing and sight.

The Sydney Park Cycling Centre is within the grounds, providing a space for families to learn about cycling and road safety.
