With more time than ever to explore your backyard, we wanted to highlight and showcase some of the amazing finds to get the whole family out and about around the Camden Council area.
Starting in Oran Park, head to Julia Reserve Youth Precinct. Bound with colour, this precinct is one of its kind in the area. With a combined multi-dimensional skate park, parkour training ground, basketball courts and ping pong tables, the expansive area will have you entertained for hours. Adjacent to the park itself sits a large open space perfect for a picnic, a workout, or just to kick a ball around.
The Julia Reserve Youth Precinct catches your eye as soon as you see it. The bright colours create something truly special and pair perfectly with the POPP table tennis tables, designed and painted by our own Danielle Mate. The Julia Reserve Youth Precinct can be found on Peter Brock Drive, Oran Park.
As the weather gets warmer, head on over to the Dawson-Damer Park. The facilities here include a splash park, toddlers and kids playground, Ninja Warrior Course, basketball courts, ping pong tables, BBQ and picnic facilities and much more.
The splash park within this reserve is the largest water play space within the Macarthur Region and has water flowing 10 am – 7 pm from September through to April. The park is located right in the soon to be the heart of Oran Park Town, which means that if you visit the park as it currently stands, you’ll be witnessing the changing face of Oran Park. The views out onto the farmland from the park are stunning and should be appreciated before the landscape changes. Walking through the reserve you begin to imagine what the future of Oran Park will be, and how the park will be a central feature of this up and coming city!
Heading over to Gregory Hills, check out Howard Park. Howard Park at Gregory Hills is a regional recreational park, anchoring and enhancing the Gregory Hills Town Centre. It has become a talking point for both residents and developers in and around Sydney. Designed by local design firm distinctive Living Design with an Australian first Anemone play structure constructed in the heart of the park, the playground will be sure to entertain kids and adults alike for hours.
As well as play facilities, the park includes a large public art sculpture titled Mount St. Gregory which emulates the ridgeline and typography of the surrounding scenic hills skyline. Howard park at Gregory Hills is located on Gregory Hills Drive adjacent to the town centre.
Heading towards the historic Camden Town Centre you’ll pass by Curry Reserve. What has recently undergone a new facelift bringing to the reserve upgraded facilities, and Camden’s own water park.
With plenty of space to ride a bike, kick a ball, or have a picnic, you can easily spend a whole day here knowing that the kids will be occupied. With accessible facilities, the water park is opened September through April each year and can be started with a touch of a button.
