The People of Parra Park
I never really appreciated how lovely the Park was until I moved back to Parramatta
We played touch football at Parramatta Park on a Sunday morning in the early 1980s. I never really appreciated how lovely the Park was until I moved back to Parramatta in 2010. I walked the Park each morning as early as 5:30am, and in the dark. Not once did I ever feel unsafe or scared. On weekends without having to go to work I would walk the Park and buy a take away coffee from the cafe. I would sit by the river in peace and quiet. I was sad to leave Sydney again, but each time I visit I make sure I visit Parramatta Park for a walk at least once during my visit.
