Boronia Park is a 4.9 hectare Park located in Epping. The park has a few entrances, the most popular ones being on Rawson Street (behind the local Coles store) and on Bridge Street.

The park contains several benches, as well as many grassy areas. Sloping grassy fields make for potential kite-flying sites on windy days.
This sloping field makes for a potential kite-flying site on windy days. I have enjoyed games of Frisbee as well as casual picnics on this field.
Following the path from the Rawson Street entrance will bring you to a small shaded playground area with an accompanying swing-set and nearby climbing frame. Older children love this red rope frame, while younger children tend to enjoy the playground area and surrounding paths more.

A red rope climbing frame is enjoyed by the older children, and the young at heart.
Sheltered picnic tables are available near the playground
Around the corner from the playground you can find some simple exercise machines with accompanying instructions on plaques. These colourful machines can be seen from the winding, picturesque paths set amongst the trees. Joggers and walkers enjoy making use of these paths, along with young children on bikes and scooters.

For the athletically inclined, there is also a soccer field that can be reached via a set of stairs near the climbing frame. The soccer field is large and has always been unoccupied during the times I have visited. However, the grounds are always well maintained. Boronia Park also contains a cricket field, bubblers, a children’s bike track, and public toilets.

Finally, be sure to keep an eye out for events held at this park. Last year I attended the local Carols in Boronia Park. The event was enjoyed by families and visitors who clustered before the stage on picnic blankets and seats that had been brought along for the event.
