Spend a day at Rouse Hill Regional Park
Enjoy the views
If you are looking for a spot for an active day out then why not consider Rouse Hill Regional Park. A day here is really enjoyable with so much to do and see! I love coming here to enjoy the walks, the rural vistas and the great playground facilities. It is also super popular with locals as it is dog friendly and your pooch can enjoy some great views.
Before heading here check out the map below to figure out where best to start your day – taking note of where the walking tracks, playground and toilets are located.
Rouse Hill Regional Park Map
There are two easy walks within Rouse Hill Regional Park.
First there is the Rouse Hill Estate Walk which is a great short walk (approximately 15 minutes) that takes visitors up near the Rouse Hill House and Farm estate. Kids will love seeing the old buildings and with a few cows to spot you can tick off farm animals too. Adults will enjoy the views down across the park. The park is dog friendly so bring your pooch along for the walk!
The other walk within the park is the Second Ponds Creek walk. This walk meanders through woodlands and past a pond. It is a 1km loop that takes 15 to 45 minutes depending on your pace.
Walking trails and wildflowers
Playground and amazing spaces
There is a playground situated within the park that includes both an older kids play space and an area for little ones. There are toilets nearby as well as tables and BBQ facilities. If you are lucky enough you might even score the table with BBQ facilities in the viewing area.
Great spaces for the kids
Pack a picnic
The park has some great picnic spots – some that are situated near the kids playground and others that are away from the kids facilities (if you are looking for some peace and quiet!). There are several toilet blocks around the park as well (although these may be a bit of a walk depending on where you are sitting). If you are looking for something pretty private then head right round to the far side of the park and you will find a picnic table by the pond.
There are free BBQ’s situated throughout the park.
The area is quite exposed so bring hats, sunscreen and also plenty of water (no drinking water available in the park).
Plenty of picnic spots to choose from
