Parramatta Park

About us

World Heritage-listed Parramatta Park is 85 hectares of lawns and gardens, historic monuments, outdoor event spaces, and sporting and leisure facilities. The park is one of the earliest gazetted public parks in Australia, dedicated as a park in 1857. 

Home to the Burramattagal, the park’s ancient cultural landscape has provided food, shelter and resources for close to 40,000 years.  

Parramatta Park is a place for recreation, sport and entertainment as well as a key resource for telling the stories of Aboriginal and European heritage. Its 85 hectares of parklands, event venues, sporting facilities, remnant bushland, picnic and play facilities provide valuable open green space for the people of Parramatta and beyond.

The park contains Australia’s oldest surviving government house and the oldest intact building of European origin, the Dairy Cottage. Parramatta Park with Old Government House is one of the 11 Australian convict sites listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Register.
