Forrester Park is a park surrounded by bushland. Its main feature is a playground, but it has a small sports field with a cricket pitch. Just across the pedestrian bridge, one will have access to walking trails along Terrys Creek.

Forrester Park is located along Vimiera Road in Eastwood Heights. Street parking is available along Vimiera Road. What sets this park aside is that it has bushes at the edge, making you feel like you are not in a residential area but somewhere in the middle of a national park.

It has a small playground, enough to entertain kids if you have them in tow, but not grand enough to attract a crowd. The playground is then usually available, and in these times of physical distancing, being away from the crowds but still having a playground for your kids is a plus.

If you want to book the park, enquire at the City of Ryde. Click here for the booking enquiry website.

Forrester Park is by the border between the City of Ryde and the City of Parramatta. On the Parramatta side of the pedestrian bridge, a local group called the Burnt Bridge Bushcare Group Vimiera Park meets up on the third Sunday of each month between 9:30AM and 12:30PM. If you live in the area and you want to meet your neighbours, do something for the environment and at the same time get some exercise, feel free to join the group. Call the Parramatta Council's Bushcare Officer at (02) 9806 8280 for details.
