Sydney Park is a local inner Sydney landmark known for the tall chimneys that rise above the former brickworks site. Despite not being used for more than 60 years, the brick kilns remain a solid attraction for its historical relevance. The park occupies around 40 hectares of lush greens, landscaped gardens, steep hills, pathways and wetlands. Creeks and marshes can be found around the park. The rolling landscape remains as one of the last vestiges of Old Sydney, now immediately being threatened by government developmental projects (like Westconnex) that would compromise not only its place in the local community but also its historical significance.
