Jubilee Park

Today we decided to make our Parks in Sydney visit, Jubilee Park, which is situated in the suburb of Glebe in Sydney’s inner west. We knew Jubilee Park was at the end of Glebe Point Road, but to our amazement there were actually four parks and a reserve that wound around the Glebe Foreshore. We did not realise how extensive it was and the beauty of it was that it is all level.

The Glebe Peninsula

Jubilee Park is one of a group of parks that all join around the Glebe Peninsula from Ferry Road in the east to Chapman Road and the bottom end of Johnston Street in the west. Blackwattle Bay Park, Pope Paul VI Reserve, Bicentennial Park, Jubilee Park and Federal Park all make up over 17 hectares (42 acres) of parkland and foreshore promenade.

Rozelle and Blackwattle Bay

The parks have magnificent views over Rozelle and Blackwattle Bay. This position gives you a fantastic view of the Anzac Bridge and the old Glebe Island Bridge. In the distance there are views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Jubilee Park – Amenities, Playgrounds, Sports Field

There are picnic shelters, barbecue facilities, children’s playgrounds, sports field and toilets. There are two free barbecues near Cook Street and Chapman Road.

The Esther Abraham Pavillion can be hired for individual use.  A great location to organise a party or celebration with family and friends.

Dog Friendly

The park is dog friendly and some areas of the park  allow dogs to be taken off the lead. There are  a couple of small beaches (which are subject to the tides) where the dogs can paddle in the water. The day we were there, there were a number of dogs enjoying the water.

Pontoon, Mobile Coffee Vendor, Shade

Also there are mobile vendors selling coffee, tea and ice creams.

There are two pontoons that you can disembark passengers from small vessels. One is located at Chapman Road and the other at Leichhardt Street in Blackwattle Park.

There are lots of trees some of which are very old Moreton Bay Figs, which offer lots of shade.

Entry, Parking an and Public Transport

Entry and parking are free but there is a combination of time limit parking and all day parking. Public transport is available in the form of Buses (STA route 431) and Metro Light Rail.

The next Sydney Park we will visit is Putney Park, located on the Parramatta River at Putney.
