Many Sydneysiders will have fond memories of mucking around in the lake back when swimming was allowed at this popular western Sydney swimming hole. But that doesn't detract from the cool and calm setting of Lake Parra. With lots of free gas barbecues and shaded tables, it makes a welcome respite from the hot summer days. Open 6.30am-5.30pm (7.30pm during daylight saving).
