It’s almost 40 degrees outside. The kids are home for school holidays. You’ve run out of ideas on where to take them. So, what now?
We’ve got you covered.
There is so much to do to escape from the heat in Sydney Olympic Park and we’ve narrowed the list to 5 ways to cool down:
- Water feature cooling effects
It’s all in the science.
When water evaporates it provides a natural cooling effect. Our many water features around the Park, including the Olympic Cauldron and the Treillage Tower, create a cool oasis for you to sit down and enjoy the outdoors even in this scorching heat.
- Aquatic Centre
Well this one is pretty obvious. Who doesn’t love a swim on a sweltering hot day?
Get to the Aquatic Centre nice and early to skip the queue and splash around in one of the many pools inside to suit everyone’s water temperature needs.
- The shade of Fig Grove
Sydney Olympic Park’s historic abattoir past lives on in the mature fig trees that line the Fig Grove water feature and provide an abundance of shade.
Grab a picnic basket and sit underneath one of these beautiful barriers from the sun while at the same time cooling down next to one of our most popular water features.
- Ice cream
On the little corner of Showground Road and Dawn Fraser Road, there sits a little slice of heaven we like to call Cold Rock Ice Creamery where not only can you eat ice cream, but you can make it your own with all your favourite trimmings!
So when I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream, don’t just sit there and listen to the whinging, treat yourself with that sweet, ice-cold goodness.
- Blaxland Riverside Park water play
Our two favourite words when we think of summer and school holidays.
Get yourself and the family to the water play feature at Blaxland Riverside Park for a wet day of outdoor fun!
