Lilyfield is a beautiful part of Sydney’s inner west nestled between Annandale, Leichhardt and Rozelle with expansive parks, waterfront and a strong community spirit.Like many Inner West suburbs it is becoming increasingly gentrified and the demographic is a mix of residents who have lived in the area for decades and professional couples and families who have fallen in love with the convenient and wholesome lifestyle. Local residents flock to ‘foodie heaven’ each Saturday at the Orange Grove Primary School where all sorts of culinary delights await. Families select their organic groceries for the week and children love to line up for a pony ride. More adventures can be had outdoors visiting the extensive parklands, particularly Leichhardt Park, Whites Creek Valley Park and William Stuart Playground beside the historic Aquaduct.
There is also the historic Callan Park which spreads over 150 acres right down to the foreshore of Iron Cove. It is home to the Sydney College of the Arts and the popular Bay Run with bike and walking paths. A great place for the fitness conscience is the state-of-the-art Leichhardt Aquatic Centre renowned for its award winning swim program for infants and children. Other facilities on offer are a fully equipped gymnasium, childcare centre, hydrotherapy pool and café. Weekends can be spent catching up with friends for coffee at local cafes or cheering on the West Tigers when they play at their home ground Leichhardt Oval. It is easy to get around Lilyfield plus visit surrounding suburbs and the CBD with excellent bus and light rail services. Should a scenic trip to the city be more desirable Lilyfield is only a stone’s throw away from the Balmain East Wharf to jump on board a ferry. Lilyfield truly is a remarkable place for families to live and it continues to grow in popularity.
