Open spaces: Blayney Heritage Park


Blayney Case Study Banner

Introduction

Blayney Heritage Park is an area of high quality open space that offers a range of active and passive recreation facilities. The multi-purpose park is notable for the range of facilities it provides, catering for a wide range of users, from children to adults, families and groups, walkers and cyclists. The adventure playground is a particularly good example of a carefully designed children’s play area. Its range of innovative and ‘out of the ordinary’ facilities attract high numbers of children and encourage their physical activity. As well as children’s play facilities, the park has a cycle/walking path around the perimeter, shaded seating and barbecue shelters, and an amphitheatre for larger gatherings. Overlooking the adjacent wetland, the park is also an attractive place for people to interact with nature, and includes shallow ponds and a constructed creek with high quality landscaping.

The clustering of different facilities in the park, and the location adjacent to the local tennis club and within easy walking distance from the town centre, shops and local schools has created a vibrant and well-used area of open space. The location of the park adjacent to the MidWestern Highway also means that it is a convenient stopping point for motorists travelling between Bathurst and Cowra. The park is regularly used for community events such as Australia Day and RTA Bike Week.
