Free festival of food, fun and music in Liverpool
Eat Your Heart Out Liverpool is a festival of food and music to celebrate the grand opening of the revamped Macquarie Mall and Bigge Park in the heart of Liverpool.

Having completed a $10 million upgrade to Bigge Park, including a new water play area and splash par, and an $11 million revitalisation of Macquarie Mall, Liverpool Council is ready to celebrate the improved heart of the city and you are invited.

Mayor Wendy Waller said, "We are proud of the revitalised city centre, including the upgraded Bigge Park, and are keen to share the vibrant heart of the city with the rest of Sydney".

Taking place on Saturday 28th October 2017, the festivities will begin at noon in Bigge Park, where families can check out the new water play area and enjoy some family fun with our favourite oversized games provided by Garden Games.
