Walking and cycling
Parramatta Park is a beautiful setting for walking and cycling, whether you remain within the Park itself, or include it as one part of a longer ride. The Park has a 3.2km loop cycle lane, but also connects to cycle paths leading alongside the Parramatta River and all the way to Sydney Olympic Park.
Cyclists of all skill levels come to ride at the Park. The main road is currently shared with pedestrians and cars, while Long Avenue (a smooth 600-metre path running parallel with Domain Creek) is ideal for younger riders as it is only used by authorised vehicles and is not part of the main internal roadway.
Heritage Walks and Rides
Parramatta Park and surrounds are rich with historically significant sites. Walking and cycling are great ways to explore the sites, whether you’re following one of our self-guided tours, retracing the steps of Governor Phillip along the Parramatta River and into the Park, or exploring the area’s Aboriginal heritage on the Burramatta Landscape Trail.
