Werrington Lakes Reserve in Western Sydney is home to a man made lake surrounded by spacious parklands that are loads of fun to explore with kids of all ages.



Werrington Lakes Reserve


You will find Werrington Lakes Reserve on Burton Street in Werrington. There is a decent amount of parking both in the parking lot and also on the street. The first thing you will notice when you arrive is the gated, but dated playground suitable for kids under the age of 9 years.

The playground includes a fort, swings, things to climb up on and a firemanís pole. Older kids will probably have more fun using the exercise equipment which is diagonally opposite. And there is also a water splash area which is a perfect spot to cool down on, on a hot Western Sydney day! The playground and water splash area are protected by a shade sail, but the outdoor exercise equipment isn't.

If you need a coffee to survive a park date with your kids, make sure you pick one up before you arrive as there isn't a cafe in sight! However there are BBQs and picnic facilities so BYO your own food and enjoy a picnic. You will find the toilet block right near the playground which is a bonus.

After your play and picnic it's time to explore the rest of the reserve. There are walking and cycle paths, so make sure you bring the scooter along with you. Another idea would be to bring some duck feed along as there are quite a few feathered quackers around the lake of all shapes and sizes. But remember no bread! This makes ducks sick over time, so instead try some of these ideas: cracked corn, barley, oats, birdseed, defrosted frozen peas or corn kernels.

Now it's time to strut your stuff around the Werrington Park Environmental Trail. This trail meanders around Werrington Lake and is suitable for kids of all ages but not prams. There are 13 different markers located on the trail which can be found on big sandstone blocks and they feature local fauna (sadly a couple have been chipped off). You are meant to be able to download the Environmental Trail Family Booklet from Penrith City Council's website, but we weren't able to find it anywhere on the site when we visited recently, so we just made our own way around. The walk takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

Werrington Lakes Reserve is a great place to spend half a day enjoying the great outdoors. Besides all of the above activities there is also a ton of space to kick a footy, play a game of cricket, fly a kite or just run wild. So ditch the devices and head outdoors next weekend and enjoy everything that Werrington Lakes Reserve has to offer.
