“Park in the Heart of Balmain”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

This Park is smack bang in the middle of thriving downtown Balmain CBD. How good is that. If you are feeling like you need a breather from shopping, or from visiting the Balmain hospital over the road at the back of the Park, then there it is. Not only that, it is cram packed with things for people to do. There is a lawn Bowling Club; a Children's Playground; Basket Ball Court; picnic tables; and, lovely gardens to please the senses. On the weekends, you can repair here if a visit to the Balmain Markets are tiring you. Toilets are on site, and there is a Bus Stop immediately and conveniently at the foot of the park. There is a bit of a controversy brewing at the moment for this park. The NSW Government wants to extend the light rail underground to here. Local residents don't want this to happen. Balmain residents have traditionally been strong on community action, however, the demographic is changing. The current Balmain citizen may stand back from this. So, in the future you may be able to access this Park by light rail. Who knows.
