Getting to Sydney Park

Like any other Sydney event, we highly recommend getting to Sydney Park by using public transport as there is limited parking on and around the Park. Allow plenty of time to get there.

Public Transport

St Peters railway station is across the road and bus stops are located on Sydney Park Road and King Street. Public transport on Sundays is capped at $2.60 for all Opal card customers. Check out https://transportnsw.info to plan your trip. Buses numbers: 348, 308, 370 & 422 will get you to the Park.

Taxi/Uber

Best drop off location for a Taxi, Uber or by a friend is the carpark located on the Princes Highway opposite May Street.

Parking

There are two Sydney Park parking lots. One is located on Princes Highway opposite May Street and the other on Sydney Park Road near the Mitchell Road intersection.

Bunnings Alexandria is also a short walk down Euston Road. It has a large customer carpark for those who plan on shopping at Bunnings. There is also street parking located around the Alexandria area.

Please note: 

Due to an amazing new skate park being constructed adjacent to the carpark on Sydney Park Road (opposite Mitchell Road) the foot path leading to the Unity Walk location is only accessed either by walking on unlevel grass or up and over a steep pathed hill. We recommend the best place for disabled parking or drop off is located on Princes Highway opposite May Street.

Due to current works taking place around the park (particularly near Campbell Road) there may be road changes that take place without notification. Stay up to date with any traffic changes visit www.livetraffic.com
