Western Sydney Parklands

Lizard Log

Lizard Log is a natural wonderland where interaction with its bushland setting is encouraged via a terrific nature-themed playground, plus scenic walking and cycling tracks. Purpose-built coal barbecuing stations make it a top pick for family barbies, too.

Please note: 

As part of essential work to upgrade our Lizard Log entrance, some temporary access changes will be implemented in May 2018 including:


  • Closure of the existing park entry at the roundabout intersection of Cowpasture Road and The Horsley Drive. This will be converted to an exit only for vehicles leaving the park.
  • Entry to the park for vehicles and pedestrians will be via a temporary entry south on Cowpasture Road. Please look out for detour signage which will be in place to help direct visitors to the temporary entry.

Please see our Parklands Project page for more information.
