The Lidcombe area of Western Sydney isn’t all about action, fine dining and entertainment. There are also some fantastic areas to simply chill out and relax. One such location, right in the middle of the suburb, is Remembrance Park.
You can either stroll around the well-manicured grounds, breathing in the fresh air, or simply kick back on the grass and indulge in a picnic lunch while soaking up the serenity.
For the kids there is a fenced-in playground and there are cafes and snack food shops located nearby for your convenience.
While you’re there, explore the war memorials and monuments that have been erected in Remembrance Park to commemorate soldiers who fought and died in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
#4 – Splash Out At Sydney Olympic Park Swimming Centre
Located just a stone’s throw away from Lidcombe is the Sydney Olympic Park Swimming Centre, the same centre that was used for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. These days it’s more of a recreational facility for people of all ages to enjoy.
There is a specialised kid’s play area where children can enjoy water slides and other fun water activities, while parents can chill out nearby in a deck chair. For the adults, take a dip in the Olympic swimming pool. For the more daring, leap off one of the diving boards or diving platforms.
Also on offer is a jungle gym, obstacle course, rapids, spas and aquatic playground. When you’re all hungry after swimming, upstairs there is a restaurant where you can order delicious food and beverages.
#5 – Fancy Some Golf Or Striking Out On the Driving Range?
Right next door to Lidcombe is the suburb of Strathfield. It’s home to one of the best golf courses in the Western Suburbs. Amateurs and budding pros can all enjoy a day out at Strathfield Golf Club. After chasing that little white ball around all afternoon, indulge in an ice-cold beverage at the clubhouse afterwards. You’ve earned it, no matter how well or badly you’ve played.
If playing a full round of 18 holes of golf doesn’t appeal to you, but you still fancy giving a golf ball a good whack, not far north of the golf course is the Hudson Park Driving Range. Here you can test your driving skills and release some pent up energy. It’s a lot of fun, even for people who never play golf.
