Bicentennial park, located near Sydney Olympic park on the shores of Homebush Bay consists of 40 hectares of lush green land, playgrounds and walking paths.

The park has multiple entrances and abundant parking spaces. The Rhodes entrance and parking lot is convenient for walkers and cyclists. The other entrances are from Australia avenue and Bennelong Park road.

The park was originally a rubbish dump and in 1988, a huge project was undertaken to transform the land into a recreational park. It features cycling and walking tracks, playgrounds, BBQ areas, mangrove forests, outdoor venue hire, all in its 40 hectare property.

Some of the highlights of the park are the water play area and the splashing fountains.
