Relax with family in one of Blacktown's parks and reserves

Blacktown City has over 800 open space areas with many of them featuring playground equipment for children to enjoy. Also ideal for picnics, family gatherings, social games, resting, relaxing and even health, wellbeing and fitness activities with more and more parks installing permanent outdoor fitness stations for public use.

Nurragingy Reserve

Nurragingy Reserve at Rooty Hill is a sprawling natural bushland reserve of more than 84 hectares and offers picnic and BBQ areas, children’s playgrounds, walking and cycling tracks, formal garden areas and a picturesque lake.

Located with the reserve is the Chang Lai Yuan Chinese Gardens. Featuring a formal Gateway, beautiful Seven Arch Stone Bridge, a restful Light Mountain Pavillion and a lovely Waterfall Gazebo, this garden is very picturesque, stunning and relaxing. The exquisite garden was cooperatively designed and constructed by Blacktown City Council and Liaocheng Municipal Government in China, as a symbolic gesture of friendship between the two sister cities. The garden’s name was derived by adopting one character from each of the names Dong‘chang’ (which is the former name of the City of Liaocheng) and Blacktown when translated from Chinese (Bu ‘Lai’ Ke Cheng). ‘Yuan’ is the Chinese translation for garden. The architectural style of the structures within the garden is based on the Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty in China,

Also located with Nurragingy Reserve is the quaint little Nurragingy Blacksmith Hut, where traditional blacksmithing demonstrations are held some weekends and the Water Splash Area, where children love to get wet as they splash around the water sprays during the summer months.

Knox Rd, Doonside.

Prospect Reservoir and Nature Reserve

Prospect Reservoir is located on Prospect Creek and was the first earthfill embankment dam in Australia. It remains an integral part of Sydney’s drinking water supply and is required in times of high demand for water. Lookouts give you unimpeded views of the dam and its immediate surrounds. The original buildings, structures and machinery related to the construction of the dam can also be found and viewed here. A lovely space to picnic with children's playground equipment on offer. Also enjoy walking and cycling on the tracks found here.

Rouse Hill Regional Park

Surrounded by the historic Rouse Hill House and Farm, Rouse Hill Regional Park is a little bit of country in the suburbs.
