Time Out Sydney

If you dwell in the inner west you’re pretty much honour-bound to attend a home game by the Newtown Jets, and Henson Park is surprisingly well-suited for families. It never gets seriously crowded, there’s great picnic spots, and the eastern side of the park has a steep hill perfect for rolling down. The whole area is also looking particularly nice at the moment, after undergoing some minor refurbishments to the grandstand and surrounds.
