Harris Park

Harris Park is a unique inner-city neighbourhood located on the fringe of the Parramatta CBD.

 

It is defined by its wonderful cultural mix, strong concentrations of Indian and Arabic residents and an interestingly authentic retail mix catering to the needs of the local community.

 

Stroll down the tree lined streets and treat your senses to the fine sub-continental and Lebanese eateries, spice traders, delis and grocers. Stop in at one of the high-end sari boutiques. Or treat yourself to some home-made baklava and a strong coffee.

 

The town centre looks great after a recent $1.5 million upgrade, which included public art, fencing, new footpath paving, seating, planting, ramps, a new roundabout and chess tables. Add to this a train station, the full range of services including a newsagent, laundrette, post office, medical services, plus 6 stunning new restaurants which have just opened their doors in the last year, Harris Park is really coming into its own.

 

And as if this isn't reason enough to visit, Harris Park also houses significant heritage assets. Nearby are the historial properties; Hambledon Cottage, Elizabeth Farm and Experiment Farm Cottage, all of which date back to the 1700s and offer an insight into the period of early agricultural pioneering in Australia.

 

Harris Park takes its name from the colonial surgeon John Harris.
