Did you know there are over 180 parks throughout the Inner West? What may be surprising to some, is the highest number of parks in any single suburb is in Marrickville with 24! With this many green spaces in the Inner West, it’s far from the concrete jungle that some people might think.
A great deal of these parks are recreational and include playgrounds, sporting facilities and cafes. The Inner West Council have a great webpage dedicated to showing you details on all of them! You can search by suburb or by facilities, with lists including things like, “Parks with basketball”, “Parks with off-leash areas”, “Parks with playgrounds” or “Parks with fitness stations” and a few more.
Still “green” and somewhat related, the Inner West Council website can also direct you to where your local community gardens are, how to establish one and a bunch of other useful information around these fantastic community initiatives.
