Ballast Point Park

Ballast Point Park 1

Description:

This 2.6-hectare park offers Sydneysiders and visitors walking paths, access for cyclists and green picnic spots with incredible views of Sydney Harbour Bridge.

One of the park's most interesting features is the way the site's history has been brought to life for visitors through design, art and poetry, including:

  • Tank 101: a structure to symbolise the site's working harbour history
  • Delicate Balance: an artwork that represents the use of sandstone from the site as ballast for European ships.

Aboriginal history has been recognised in a dual name for the park - Walama - which means 'to return' and highlights the area's transformation from industrial use back to nature.

Although this Park is situated within the Leichhardt LGA, contact the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority for all bookings on 9240 8861 or venuehire@shfa.nsw.gov.au
