Parramatta Park is one of the oldest public parks in the world with more than two million people visiting every year.
There's evidence of 20,000 years of Aboriginal occupation and land use and it was a Vice-Regal domain from 1788. In 1858 it was gazetted a ‘People’s Park ‘ - one of the earliest in the world.
The 85-hectare Park has always been Parramatta’s gathering place. It is a great spot to picnic, celebrate family milestones, get active, explore our history or attend one of the many events and festivals hosted in the Park.
The park’s rich and unique history was recognised on July 31, 2010, when it was inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List as one of 11 Australian sites forming the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage property.
