Amor Street Park

I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

Amor Street Park sits on the corner of Amor Street and Hyacinth Street. It's a typical local park that offers little more than the most basic facilities and exists to serve the needs of families living in the surrounding area. However, I can't say I have seen people using the park very often at all.

Despite its apparent lack of popularity, there is actually some decent play equipment here that I think children would enjoy, such as slides, a tunnel and rocking chairs, as well as a set of swings. The space is completely fenced off from the surrounding roads too, so kids are safe from cars.

Parents will appreciate the picnic tables in the back corner, where they will also find shade to relax in. There used to be a lot more shade here, courtesy of a large tree that grew in the corner where the two roads meet, but it was recently cut down, leaving the park a lot more open and sunny now.

One of the reasons Amor Street Park may not be that popular is its accessibility. The surrounding area is quite hilly, so you can't walk here without heading up a hill on either your way here or your way back, which I can imagine kids and adults alike wouldn't enjoy. The park isn't exactly worth driving too either, and if anyone wanted to do so, the only parking available is on the street.

However, if you do happen to live in the Asquith or Hornsby area and decide to pay a visit to Amor Street Park it could still be worthwhile, as your kids probably won't have to compete with others to use the equipment.
