Olympic Park Walks

Home > Sydney > Outdoor
Published March 20th 2009
Since the Olympic Games the area surrounding the Olympic Park has slowly been transformed into one of the best public recreation areas in the country with great facilities and beautiful parks.

The parks in particular are getting better each year as the trees and gardens mature, providing a more attractive landscape (and more shade for picnics on a hot day), as the raw "just built" feeling the park used to have fades away.

There are a whole range of fabulous 30 to 60 minute walks around the Olympic Park.

Two of the most fun, which are right next to each other, are the walk through the Badu Mangroves and the elevated Brickpit walkway.

You can download a map of all the walks around the Olympic Park here, and view the Olympic Park Walks webpage.

The Mangrove Walk starts in Bicentennial Park, goes through the Mangroves (follow the pink line on the map) and then loops around next to the Brickpit Walk.

The Brickpit is an elevated circular walkway "that allows visitors to access and view the Brickpit from above while preserving the habitat of the endangered Green and Golden Bell frog".

It's quite an impressive structure with coloured panels around the outside.

When you've finished your walk you can enjoy a BBQ in Bicentennial Park at any of the electric BBQs that are dotted around.

There is lots of parking in Bicentennial Park, or catch the train to the Olympic Park Station.


Why? Enjoy the best park in Sydney.
