The People of Parra Park
Sam from Potts Hill
I arrived in Australia in 2011. I have lived in Parramatta and my English school was at Westmead, so I was seeing Parramatta Park every day and enjoying the scenery from the train. My graduation was held in the Park.
After that I visited the Park a couple of times to enjoy the scenery and walk. I visit it twice a year for Eid Prayer in the early morning. It is so peaceful and calming praying outside altogether, next to the river, enjoying the sounds of the birds.
I also went to the Park for a date. We had a picnic, went for a nice walk enjoying the river and the trees and stopped to see the bat colony, which is really impressive.
We wanted to get married in the Park, but we ended up getting married elsewhere, which was a little disappointing. My wife and I love the Park, so, we keep coming. It's such a beautiful, big park with so much to see.
