Rouse Hill Regional Park makes for a perfect family day out. Kids can explore the revitalised nature playground, ride bikes or scooters around the paths, play ball games or relax at the picnic shelters. There’s something for everyone. Plus, the park is dog-friendly, so you can bring your four-legged friends along to walk beside you, but they’ll need to be on a leash at all times.

The revitalised playground is very much a natural space which suits the surrounds, with logs, tunnels, a bridge and tree stumps to traverse and explore. There’s a flying fox, swings, climbing frame, musical components and great picnic huts and bbq facilities right by the playground.

There’s plenty of space for bikes and scooters. It’s also great spot for a birthday party — there’s room for everyone, with big picnic tables to fit in all your guests.

For those who love history you’ll also see the names of the Rouse family who lived on the land in the 1800s.  If you have time on a Sunday (currently open between 10am and 4pm) you can head next door to Rouse Hill Estate which was home to six generations of one family.  The house has been restored and is now managed by Sydney Living Museums. In addition to the home, the Estate features the restored 1888 Rouse Hill schoolhouse, a section of the original Windsor Road turnpike proclaimed by Governor Macquarie in 1813, and the site of the doomed 1804 ‘Vinegar Hill’ convict rebellion.

Once your kids have explored the playground you can take a short brisk walk along Second Ponds Creek. There’s plenty of shade along this mostly flat walking track, so it’s a good one for a sunny day. Be sure to look and listen out for the birds along the way. You’re sure to feel energised after a little dose of nature. The walk starts from Rouse Hill Park playground and is a 1km loop.

There’s a big green oval right next to the playground to kick a ball or throw a frisbee.
