'Tis The Season To Be Jolly!

This year’s Christmas Carols will kick off at the official opening of Bressington Park on Saturday 8 December!

The festive event will treat you and your family to a magical day of Christmas performances, a visit from Santa Claus, family picnic, delicious food stalls and children’s activities!

That’s not all! There will also be a special Movies in the Park Christmas screening of Elf and a spectacular fireworks display to conclude the night.

The event will be even more special this year as we host it at the newly renovated Bressington Park on Underwood Road, Homebush. Bressington Park has recently been the subject of an extensive upgrade with a fresh design, new playing fields, walkways, playgrounds, cricket nets and a new amenities block. Council is excited to bring this fantastic park to residents and will hold an official opening before the Carols.

So mark it in your calendars!

When: Saturday 8 December from 2pm; Carols from 6pm; Elf screening at 8pm; fireworks at approx. 9.45pm

OK, so it’s summer. It’s not a real rink. But it’s just as fun! Strap some skates on and chase the kids around the rink for some active family time.

You better watch out, you better not cry, Santa Claus is coming to Bressington Park! Get ready kids for a visit from the big man in the red suit.

Leave your mark on your new favourite park! Plant a tree at Bressington Park and watch it grow over the years.
