Parks In and Around Sydney Parks In and Around Sydney
Cabarita Park

Last week we visited Putney Park, today our Sydney Parks is Cabarita Park. This very old established park is on the southern shore of the Parramatta River near Concord. There are lots of mature trees including the Moreton Bay fig.

Federation Pavilion

The Federation Pavilion (far right) was  used for the inauguaration of the Commonwealth of Australia on the 1st January, 1901  at Centennial Park Sydney. In 1903 it was purchased by Concord Council and moved to Cabarita Park. The pavilion can be hired for weddings and other functions.

Cabarita Swimming Centre, Coffee Shop, Restaurants

At the eastern tip of the park is d’Albora Marina with a coffee shop and two restaurants The Thai and Sanders Waterfront Restaurant). Adjacent to the marina is the Cabarita Swimming Centre (additional cost) with heated outdoor salt water pools. The swimming centre has a canteen which can be accessed without entry to the swimming centre.

Cabarita Park – Amenities

There are various size picnic shelters at the

park. There is a huge shelter with eight full size tables, which is great for family gatherings and celebrations. You would need to be at the park early to secure these tables. There are barbecues, children’s playground and toilets.

Dog Friendly

Dogs are allowed on leads.

Entry, Parking and Transport

Entry is free but Parking fees apply at Cabarita Park they start at $2 for 1 hour parking and increase in increments up to $15 for 24 hours parking. Local pharmacy is there too. Public transport is available in the form of Buses and Rivercat.

The next park in Sydney we will be visiting is Prince Edward Park at Cabarita.

    Hi Harry, I remember taking my cat to Cabarita Park back when I was a teenager we put a collar and lead on him. It was not a good idea, luckily we got him back home.
