While everyone knows that Wollongong is spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches, but it also is lucky enough to have plenty of glorious parks that people of all ages can enjoy. These parks are great for a bike ride, a run, or even a lazy stroll to enjoy the surrounding nature.
Featuring plenty of seating, a fun playground, and a ton of trees, Wiseman Park Reserve is only a five-minute drive from the CBD and worth the trip. Grab a coffee or a fresh pie from across the road at the local stores while the kids play, and you enjoy your meal.
Located deeper in the CBD, MacCabe Park might be smaller, but it features plenty of activities and is close to the local Youth Centre. The park is perfect after spending a day in the mall or whenever you need some fresh air and want to be surrounded by a sea of green.
Close to WIN Stadium and the Entertainment Centre, Lang Park is excellent for all ages and features plenty of activities that will keep the kids entertained. If you’re looking for a workout as well, then you’ll find some fitness equipment available for everyone to enjoy and work up a sweat.
Metres away from the beach, Stuart Park features a fantastic walking path that puts you in the middle of the beach and some greenery. With plenty of BBQs, a large playground, and the stunning lagoon, you’ll get the best both of the land and the sea at this location.
