Blackheath Park

I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.
Published November 25th 2015
Blackheath Park is a picturesque spot in the heart of Blackheath, right next to the Great Western Highway. It takes up most of the block it's on, with the rest being used by the local Community Hall (which has public toilets visitors to the park can use underneath it).

The place really is beautiful. There are gardens full of flowers and plants, a grassy lawn crossed by paths, sheltered tables, massive trees providing shade. All features you might find elsewhere, but rarely as picturesque as they are here.

Other important features include a historic road roller and the war memorial found at the entrance from the highway.

Because of its location, Blackheath Park is a great place to hold an event. I'm not just referring to family days out though; Blackheath is lucky enough to be able to use the location for some of its big activities.

I was here twice recently for events that utilise this beautiful space; first for the Blackheath Rhododendron Festival, an annual event that coincides with the flowering season of rhododrendrons, and then for the Blackheath Growers Markets, which are on the second Sunday of each month).

If a visit to this park gives you an appetite for beautiful gardens, you may want to visit and even bigger space not far away; The Campbell Rhododendron Gardens. These are woodland gardens that have been filled with rhododendrons and other plants.
