“It’s our little bit of country in the suburbs – we take the kids for a run around whenever we get time. They both learned to ride their bike here as well.”

Rouse Hill Regional Park is a fabulous resource for Hills District locals and visitors alike. Hire the relaxed Crebra or Fibrosa Pavilions for a special occasion, take a family bike ride on the trails, organise a birthday picnic or just go for a rejuvenating walk.

Kids love the adventure playground and the tracks are great for riding scooters and bikes – it’s the perfect spot for a barbeque or picnic lunch with family and friends. You can even bring your dog along.

Why you should visit

Rouse Hill Regional Park is a special place, here are just some of the reasons why:

Family fun
Every weekend Rouse Hill Regional Park is full of the sounds of families enjoying themselves riding bikes around the trails, clambering about the adventure playground, enjoying a kids’ party at the barbecues and taking the dog for a walk. It's a great place to spend the day and a valuable asset for the local community and visitors.

Beautiful venue
If you’re looking for a memorable location for your wedding or special event, think about hiring the Crebra or Fibrosa Pavilions. These fabulous open pavilions sit strikingly in the landscape, allowing your guests to enjoy the surroundings while being sheltered from the elements.

Wide open spaces for getting active
Ride your bikes through woodland, take a nice long run around the trails, or get out for a weekend walk. There’s plenty of room to stretch your legs in the wide open spaces; once the paddocks of Rouse Hill House.
