It is a little known fact that Campbelltown enjoys a special relationship with Koshigaya City, in Japan. It was in honour of Campbelltown's Japanese Sister City, that Koshigaya Park was named.
Koshigaya Park is the largest and most often visited park in the Campbelltown region. Located on the corner of Camden Road and Hurley Street, the Park is at the centre of recreation in the area, not only containing a playground and activity area, but also acting as the site of a number of child-friendly activities.
Apart from acting as a centre of activity, Koshigaya Park reflects the ordered beauty of its namesake. With decorative bushes and flowers, as well as ambling walkways and a tree-lined colonnade, the Park is strikingly removed from daily life.
Nonetheless, over the New Year, the Park is inundated with any number of events, including live entertainment and fireworks. The Park will once more act as the centre of community-based celebrations this Australia Day, with Aboriginal performances, bush dancing, and Indonesian dance shows - amounting to ten hours of entertainment at no cost to visitors.
Despite these moments of spectacle and the aesthetic placement of decorative trees and displays of flowers, Koshigaya Park also provides for the practical necessities, with wheelchair access and disabled bathrooms. In this way, the Park seeks to include diverse population that live in the Campbelltown area,
