Bicentennial Park, Concord West

Bicentennial Park is no ordinary park. It stretches across a 40-hectare natural heritage site and features an important wetland ecosystem and parklands. We spent 2 hours there and only managed to see a small part of what it had to offer!

We entered via Victoria Avenue, Concord West, where there was plenty of unmetered parking. It felt like a bit of a maze to get to the entrance point so consider using your GPS navigation.

When we arrived there looked to be some sort of interschool cross country happening. We managed to spot the playground and headed over. The playground, which has apparently been very recently revamped, had:

  • swings

  • a slide

  • flying fox

  • cubby house

  • monkey bars

Not to mention:

  • the mini scooter/bike track

  • half basketball court

  • loads of tables and seating

  • a BBQ area

  • toilets

  • Egret Pavilion which can be hired for parties

However, beyond this, there is so much more to see and do. We strolled through the mangroves and the beautifully landscaped grounds, past the oh-so-tall viewing tower and through the water fountains (the kids couldn’t resist and got soaked) to rest in a lovely manicured garden.

We didn’t even get to the other playground.. or the bike hire area.. or the Waterview Cafe… maybe next time!
