I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

There is a lot to like about Golden Jubilee Field. In fact, I don't know any other park that has more to offer; baseball and soccer fields, great views, a bike park, an off-leash dog area, play equipment, walks. Everyone can enjoy this place!
The park sits on a ridge overlooking Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. It offers great views from the baseball field at the back of the site. There is even a chair for you to relax on as you enjoy the view. This back field also serves as a dog park where dogs are allowed off-leash between 1pm and midnight, so bring your dog along.
Around this baseball field there is a path that would be perfect for teaching kids to ride a bike. For those who have already mastered the skill, there is the Jubes Mountain Bike Park, which sits at the farthest part of the point, below the field.
The bike park consists of three areas, including a skill development area where riders can improve their off-road skills on rocks and wooden surfaces as well as a see-saw and narrow sections. There are also easy, medium and difficult pump tracks and an 800 metre single track that goes up and down the hill.
At the front of this site, just off the road, are the soccer fields, which double as another baseball field. There are also two baseball batting tunnels here; the Gavin Fingelson Batting Tunnel and the Andrew Graham Batting Tunnel. You can also find play equipment close to the road, including swings, a slippery dip and more.
One quirky feature at Golden Jubilee Field is a water tank that has been painted by youngsters from the Ku-Ring-Gai Youth Services in January 2012. On one side you will see a brightly-painted idyllic rural setting, while around the other side and you can find cockatoos, a frog and a lizard.
With the strong sporting focus of the site, you should be aware that sports may be on here when you visit. But that shouldn't prevent you from enjoying the area. Why not take a walk over to Cliff Oval or one of the other sites in the area. A number of tracks start on the fire trail where the (quite extensive) carpark ends. You will find a map here to tell you where to go.
As you can see, there is a lot to do at Golden Jubilee Field, so why not come and see if there's something you like. You can find the site of Esk Road in North Wahroonga.
