Enjoy a scenic walk through the beautiful and historic Heritage Park, in Castle Hill, this autumn.

It’s one of 12 bushwalks The Hills Shire Council is encouraging residents and visitors to try in 2019. 

“Heritage Park is the site of the former Convict Farm established in 1801 and scene of the Rebellion of 1804,” Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said. 

“The site is of national significance and provides a wonderful opportunity to learn more about The Hills’ early history, as well as enjoy an active day with friends and family.

“The walk is perfect for people of all active abilities, and provides the ideal location for mums, dads, grandparents and/or guardians who want to bring the kids along.

“There’s a children’s playground, vast open space, interpretive signage about the park’s historical past, an amenities building, parking, seating and a barbecue – fantastic facilities to enjoy after your walk,” Mayor Byrne added.

The Heritage Park bushwalk is 2.4 kilometres in length and should take approximately one and a half hours to complete.
