Western Sydney Parklands is an ideal place to explore and get the heart-rate up! The beautiful bushland surrounds and convenient paths, open areas and facilities combine to make it one of Sydney’s most appealing settings for active pursuits.
Cycling and walking
There are several walking loops – marked on the Parklands Track map – and walking paths in Plough and Harrow and Lizard Log. You can find your closest walking and cycling trail on the RMS Cycleway Finder website.
See What’s On for information about cycling events in the Parklands.
Mountain bike riding
Wylde mountain bike trail is open daily from sunset to sunrise (weather permitting) and is free to ride. Winner of the 2015 Premier’s People’s Choice Awards in Landscape and Architecture and the NSW Australian Institute of Landscape Architects Design Award, the trail caters for intermediate, competent and advanced mountain bike riders.
Updates about the trail are posted to the Parklands Facebook page.

Dogs are welcome anywhere in the Parklands but must be on a leash, unless in the designated off-leash area. Warrigal Run at Bungarribee is one of Sydney’s largest off-leash dog park and is the only area in the Parklands where dogs are allowed off-leash.
Entrance to Bungarribee and Warrigal Run is 200 metres north of the traffic lights at the intersection of Holbeche Road and Doonside Road, Doonside.
