Visit the crown jewel of parks in Hornsby Shire
According to the Hornsby Shire's website, Fagan park is 'the crown jewel of Hornsby Shire's parks, covering 55 hectares that include a range of attractions for everybody.'

During these strange and usual times, finding a place to take children that is outdoors and has enough to interest everyone can be hard. Especially if you don't want to rely on the playground equipment where social distancing can be difficult. Fagan Park has enough space that it's easy to feel like you are on your own.

The museums are open each Tuesday from 10am to 4pm and the second Sunday of every month from 1.30pm to 4pm. The Friends of Fagan Park are on-site at these times.

We visited outside these times, so didn't get a chance to see the museums or Netherby Homestead (the original Fagan family's home), however, even with everything closed you could wander and have a look through windows to see inside the home, and the outdoor exhibitions were self-explanatory.

There are plenty of places to have picnics, throw a ball, fly a kite, ride a bike or scooter, enjoy a bushwalk or just sit and enjoy the view.

The park is popular for events and the picnic shelters can be hired.

The downside to the park is that it's not free. Well, if you come by car it's not free. Parking fees are $5 per vehicle, although a number of people park outside the entry and walk in.

Opening hours
Fagan Park is open all year round, seven days a week, except for Christmas Day. 7am until sunset
