Parramatta Park is committed to ensuring everyone is able to access and enjoy the picnic areas. There is a number of accessible parking spots located throughout the Park and all permanent toilet facilities have an accessible toilet.

Friends and family are also welcome in the designated viewing area. The precinct is relatively flat with a mix of grass and paved surfaces. Accessible amenities are available.

Always be aware of pedestrians and cyclists using the shared internal roadway.
Never park, or stop temporarily in either the cycle or pedestrian lanes on the shared  roadway.

PARKING
We encourage visitors to catch public transport but recognise that many people do drive to Parramatta Park. We therefore manage the limited parking within the park to benefit all visitors.

Only park in designated parking areas and marked bays. Be aware of the time limits that apply to each marked parking bay.
Never park, or stop temporarily in either the cycle or pedestrian lanes on the shared internal roadway.

For parking outside of the park, you can use this handy interactive map made by local council to find the nearest options.
