Sir Joseph Banks Park

Before we started packing for our home move, we had a weekend free.  So we decided to revisit Sir Joseph Banks Park in Botany and check out the trees we have planted.  What I love about Sydney is there are plenty of parks where you can play and have a picnic.

For my son’s first birthday, we had a tree planting event.  I wanted it to be something that could teach him how to give back to the community where is living.  So I reached out to the Botany Bay council and asked them what we could do to help the community as a celebration for my son’s first birthday.  Thus the tree planting event at Sir Joseph Banks park.

The park is located in Botany with two streets to access it.  One is through Tupia St. and the other one is thru Fremlin St.  This park has a big area for any event.  It even has two (2) shaded bbq area perfect for parties.  That’s where we held my son’s birthday.  The shed has 4 electric bbq with 4 picnic tables.

The playground is perfect for kids with so much energy to burn.  It also has a walking and running path where you can use your scooter or bike around the area.

There are benches all over the park where you can rest or just enjoy the view.  The pond the is the perfect spot to rest and enjoy the scenery.  Among other facilities of the park is ample parking space and toilet.

So when Mr. Sun comes out to play try doing it at Sir Joseph Banks park.

  1. Very special idea of celebrating your kid’s birthday. Amazing educational meaning with it, brilliant idea of yours. Wish I will have chance to visit this park one day too 😀 Cheers, Siennylovesdrawing

  2. Nice, start them young! Though I never saw that coming as a birthday activity which is brilliant btw. Also, I love pockets of greenery in the city. But sadly we don’t have much here in Manila.

    1. yes..I agree. a pocket of green here and there could brighten up any area. Hopefully the government will give more space for that it could do a lot of wonder in every area. 🙂

  3. I love that the playground looks earthy and not artificial at all. Me and my family also go to parks like this one to let the kids run around and feel free.

  4. I always love the sight of playgrounds. Staying there is a good idea too. I always enjoy hearing children laughing as they use those see saw and slide, swing, among others. The sight and sound calm my mind. I haven’t thought of a celebration in venues like that but I guess it looks fun and cool.

  5. It’s always great to give back to our nature. I like the idea of tree planting for your son’s bday. Guess I have to give back on my son’s bday too but if we already have a budget. Right now, we’re kinda short in finances that we can only spend a few for him, or if only we can spend it with no expenses at all. Thinking of a trip to the park or museum will do.

  6. It would be a delight for parents and children alike to have something like this in the community. I can imagine myself and my little man spending most of our afternoons here instead of being cooped up at home. I really wish we’d have something like this locally.

    Celebrating your little one’s birthday with a tree planting activity is also awesome! It would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience and Mother Nature will also thank you for it! 🙂
