Parramatta is a region of stylish parks, with a lively community and a centre for shopping, sport, commerce and entertainment. It should be on your to-go list when visiting Australia. Parramatta is home to some of Australia’s major corporations and government agencies. It is equally the demographic heart of the Harbor City and one of its most historic neighborhoods. Because of the coastal showers, the climate is warmer and drier than Sydney. The summer months can be really hot and the winter nights can be moderately cool.
One of the best parks in Parramatta that is a must-see when visiting Parramatta is the Prince Alfred Park. Prince Alfred Park is located in lower Surry Hills, and is surrounded by Chalmers Street, Cleveland Street and Central Railway. The first Agricultural Society was held here in 1869. The following year, Prince Alfred Park was the first park to be laid out in relation with a major Australian exhibition, the intercolonian exhibition. This park is a significant element of the city’s open space network, forming the Southern area of a North-South corridor between Green Square and the Botanic Gardens.
