Gough Whitlam Park, Earlwood
Gough Whitlam Park is a large open space with something for everyone. Great playground, cafe and lots of places to explore.
Gough Whitlam park has a fenced oval, large open space, paths and tracks to explore the wetlands along the Cook’s River. The playground has plenty of equipment to keep your kids amused, and for your sanity the Cooks River Canteen serves Holy Goat coffee.
A new playground area was added to the park in August 2015 and it includes lots of equipment suitable for all abilities. With great swings, plus one of the best flying foxes we’ve seen, this is a fantastic addition to what is already one of our favourite parks in area. One warning though – at the time of writing, the new playground has not been fenced so there is access to the river.
