World Heritage-listed Parramatta Park is 85 hectares of lawns and gardens, historic monuments, outdoor event spaces, and sporting and leisure facilities.
Welcome to Parramatta Park
Parramatta Park is one of the earliest gazetted public parks in Australia, dedicated as a park in 1857.
Home to the Burramattagal, the park’s ancient cultural landscape has provided food, shelter and resources for close to 40,000 years.
Parramatta Park is a place for recreation, sport and entertainment as well as a key resource for telling the stories of Aboriginal and European heritage. Its 85 hectares of parklands, event venues, sporting facilities, remnant bushland, picnic and play facilities provide valuable open green space for the people of Parramatta and beyond.
The park contains Australia’s oldest surviving government house and the oldest intact building of European origin, the Dairy Cottage. Parramatta Park with Old Government House is one of the 11 Australian convict sites listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Register.
Now part of Parramatta Park, Wistaria Gardens originally formed part of the Cumberland Hospital precinct. It holds a special place in the nation’s heritage as one of Sydney’s most intact surviving Edwardian Gardens.
We are restoring Parramatta’s beautiful historic Wistaria Gardens its former glory.
