Camperdown Park, Camperdown

Mallet, Fowler, Pidcock and Australia Streets, Camperdown

(The playground is situated closest to Australia Street.)

Within the densely populated area of Camperdown, Camperdown Park gives residents and visitors a beautiful, open green space in which to relax, play and exercise.

This large, well-established park has a range of excellent facilities, including a sports oval, basketball courts, outdoor gym, playground, picnic and barbecue facilities and toilets. In the past few years, the park has benefited from a number of significant upgrades which now make it a highly appealing spot for recreation and social gatherings.

The playground area has been thoughtfully designed with attractive landscaping and equipment to suit children of various ages. The younger ones are drawn to the play tower with climbing elements and a slide, a four-person seesaw, swings and some interactive nature-based features. The climbing net with a look-out at the top and some challenging swinging and balancing elements are popular with the older kids. There are several seating areas within the playground area. Unfortunately for those with little escape artists, the playground is now only partially enclosed.

In addition to the playground upgrade, new pathways and a boardwalk have been installed, improving access around the park, and a new amenities block was also built. More recently new tables, two of which are sheltered, and barbecues have been added to the grassy areas outside the playground.

Dotted with a variety of mature trees, Camperdown Park receives good shade and is a lovely spot throughout the year.

The park is in close proximity to several great cafes. On Fowler Street, you’ll find Gather on the Green and Store Espresso, both overlooking the park. And on Mallet Street, within the Camperdown Commons hub, is the fantastic Acre Eatery, which has terrace and lawn seating with an expansive area for the kids to run and play.

Camperdown Park is a significant nineteenth-century park, and features a number of important heritage elements including the bandstand, war memorial, stone walling and established trees.

There is street parking on four sides of the park, but do note parking times as parking inspectors patrol the area regularly. If you’re travelling by public transport, bus services along Parramatta Road or Carilion Avenue are your best bet.
