Boronia Park

Boronia Park

Whilst not officially a suburb, Boronia Park is certainly a destination and well known amongst locals for its shopping strip on Pittwater Road and Boronia Park Public School also on Pittwater Road. Boronia Park also offers large residential blocks and wide streets. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s subdivision took place throughout the area, which saw an increase to the local population and lots of families moving to the area.

The most recognised feature of the Boronia Park precinct is Boronia Park Reserve, which was dedicated on the 16 December 1887.

At approximately 24 hectares, Boronia Park is the largest area of open space in Hunters Hill. This popular park offers a range of leisure and recreation activities, as well as organised sporting uses, based on the area’s sizeable and environmentally significant bushland areas combined with a range of sport and recreational facilities and assets.

Boronia Park offers a rare combination of natural bushland areas, managed parkland settings, and developed sports fields and facilities that are not found elsewhere in the local government area. The Park:
