Sydney Park is such a great place to exercise and let off some steam


Ah Sydney Park, how much the humans and dogs of Sydney actually love you. It is great that the local council are also going to re-develop you for the better. The residents of St Peters are allowed to have their say on the matter in a couple of days, as at the time of writing this.

Kids slippery slide


You're not far from St Peter's train station, and must I say (just digressing for a minute) you're not far from some cool public art in Sydney either.

You might be familiar with those tall chinmey's right on the end of King Street heading towards Newtown, and where the Princes Highway reigns. On the other hand you might not be either. That's ok. This is where Sydney Park starts.

Sand for the kids


Sydney Park is home to a number of events that are designed to keep you fit and healthy with a community feel. The St Peters parkrun (yes, this event is spelt with a small p) is on every Saturday at 9am, and many athletic souls start their 5km entourage at those chimneys.

Sensational on a sunny day


Yofit is another company that run fitness events, and you will also come across a few tug-o-wars in action. Otherwise, there is a clever kid play space. It is simple, yet I love the tiled designs. There is some sand, combined with slippery dips and swings.

The kiosk area


Dog lovers will unit for a social mecca. Many dogs flock to Sydney Park, and nearly the entire doggy paradise are leash free to run around in open grassed serenity. There is a kiosk on site too. Many mums and friends catch up with their bubs and dogs in this area too.

A popular place to buy some coffee


A great place to exercise. Run or walk, whatever takes your fancy.
