Time Out says

Head to the park for major festivals or a break from the urban sprawl

Parramatta Park already clocks two million visitors per year, but with the development of the revitalised performance area the Crescent, they see many more people for festivals like indie music festival the Plot, kids' festival Kidtopia and short film fest, Tropfest. The park is less than a ten-minute walk from the station, and it’s almost as large as Centennial Parklands. The area was first cultivated into a farm in 1788 and it saved the newly arrived Europeans from starvation. It was declared a people’s park in 1858, and if you took the two-kilometre walking loop you’d come across Old Government House, the Boer War Memorial and the Dairy Cottage. Fancy something more rigorous? Take a bike and cycle the outer loop 3.2k outer loop. Look out for the eastern water dragons and colony of flying foxes. Hire a bike from Addventageous.
