We first visited Bayview Park back in March and quickly developed a crush. I mean look at the views out over Parramatta River!

Bayview Park Concord

Plus, the ferry wharf is quaint, there is a sandy beach, shallow water, on-site parking, toilets, bbqs, fun playground, big trees to climb and a lovely path along the river.

And it recently got even better with the addition of shade sails over the playground!

Bayview Park was also recently announced as one of three spots along Parramatta River where we will be able to swim by 2025!

The playground is near the parking and has a sand ground. There is a fun climbing frame, which was the main attraction for my boys.

Plus a small play gym with a slide, rockers and swings.

At the top of the playground are some picnic shelters, BBQS and toilets. And on the south side, there is a large grassed area and some beautiful and very large trees.

In front of the playground, along the foreshore, is a path and it is a lovely spot to walk. Plus along the way is exercise equipment.

  1. Dear Canada Bay Council,
    I went to this park with my friends and their kids as we made our sitting place on the bench next to the playground.
    Last Saturday on the 19th of October 2019 at 6pm till 8pm we had little bugs flying around and coming onto our faces, feet and ankles.
    We assumed that these were fruit flies however when I got home I had red spots all over my feet. It has been a week now and following up with a doctor it was treated as sand fleas.
    I just ask that the sand and the benches to be cleaned and monitored so that this doesn’t occur to any child or adult who may be allergic or anaphylactic to these bites or any bites. I’m willing to send photos if needed however my goal is to get the sand cleaned as well as the benches to be fixed as they are cracked and have materials being pulled off.
