Carlingford lies to the north of the City of Parramatta, in between Epping and North Rocks. Following the Local Council boundary changes in 2016, the whole suburb of Carlingford now resides within the City of Parramatta. It has by far the most number of playgrounds of any suburb in the City of Parramatta at 19! Though most are small, local playgrounds. Carlingford is also home to the gorgeous Balaka Falls and a number of other family-friendly bushwalks, such as Pioneer Track and Terrys Creek. Here are our reviews of playgrounds, cafes and other family-friendly activities in Carlingford.
