I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Get out of town in Blacktown
Over the years this area has been the home of Blacktown Little Athletics, a football field and a roller skating rink as well as the Blacktown Show.
In 2014 Blacktown City Council redeveloped the land into a multi use space containing facilities for passive and active recreation. There are free BBQs, picnic tables, shelters as well as a water play area and a cafe.
Weekends are a hive of activity with family get togethers and parties but the area never seems crowded as there is plenty of space to spread out. The walking/jogging/cycling track gets lots of use as does the outdoor basketball courts. Regular events are held on the large lawn. Bird life abounds due to the wetland and woodland areas.
