They really want people to drive to this park and there are two big car parks. The only other good access is via the pedestrian and cycling path along the waterfront (east from Silverwater Road or west from Olympic Park Wharf). Maybe there are paths...More

We didn't get to this park as there doesn't seem to be any easy way by public transport. We asked at Sydney transport office and they couldn't find any option that didn't involve a min 15 walk.

Took 4 kids (8-12) for a ride and a play at Riverside Park. Good range of activities and different degrees of riding. Lots of BBQ's and open green space. Good day out.
