Updated 31 July 2021 

Safeguarding the health and safety of our visitors and staff is core to what we do at Parramatta Park. We are closely monitoring and responding to Government health advice in this rapidly changing environment and putting in place measures to protect our community during these challenging times.

From 5pm Friday 9 July, under NSW Health stay-at-home orders, visitors are only permitted to enter Parramatta Park for essential purposes (including construction). This includes for personal exercise (limited to two people, excluding members of the same household), for takeaway food and beverages, for medical care or compassionate needs and for essential work. No carpooling is permitted between non-household members.

People must also stay in their Local Government Area or within 10kms of home for exercise and outdoor recreation except for residents from Blacktown, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool and Parramatta (LGAs). Residents of these LGAs must wear a mask whenever they leave the house, even if they are staying outside, and may only move within a five-kilometre radius of their homes.

We urge visitors to ensure they stay informed and comply with the latest NSW Health orders.

The People’s Loop Community Update

Find out how The People’s Loop is making it safer for everyone to cycle or walk around the park.

The People’s Loop will remove cars from most of the existing internal roads within the park. This means we can have wider pedestrian and bicycle lanes, making walking and cycling easier on the loop and reduces the conflict with vehicles.

Sports facilities get a boost

Thanks to a NSW Government grant, grass surfaces at the West Domain, Cattle Paddocks, Coleman Oval and Old Kings Oval are being top-dressed to improve playability and resilience.  Future plans include more grass work, irrigation systems and new cricket wickets.

The fields will remain open during this work but we advise Park visitors to be careful after wet weather. This round of works will be completed by the first week of June, weather permitting. There are no expected pathway or road closures during this time.
