Paringa Reserve

Home > Sydney > Parks | Picnic Spots
Published April 7th 2010
For suburb primarily associated with cafe culture and hole-in-the-wall galleries, Balmain also boasts a high number of reserves and parks for locals to enjoy.

In actuality, the Municipality of Leichhardt places its environmental strategy at the centre of its agenda, with three core principles: "community and council will work together to promote and develop Leichhardt as a sustainable and liveable community", supported by social, environmental and economic activities, in order to support future generations.

Paringa Reserve is just one example of the land set aside for these environmental ends. The reserve can be accessed from Elliott St. It takes only ten minutes to reach the park from Sydney's CBD by car. Alternatively, one can catch the 441 bus from the QVB to Mullens St near Beattie Street.

Paringa Reserve is in close proximity to Balmain Marina and enjoys an exceptional view of Cockatoo Island and Sydney Harbour. Although there is only a small grassed area available for visitors, there are seats provided so that you can enjoy the view over the water. Paringa Reserve is also in close proximity to Elkington Park.

Alternatively, when the pull of the environment wears off, it is possible to wander up to the shopping district of Balmain to explore the boutiques and coffee shops.
