It’s surprising that a city as densely populated as Sydney is so full of hidden gems. From glow worm tunnels to natural infinity pools, there’s so much to explore in our own backyard. A must-visit spot especially during springtime is squirreled away in one of Sydney’s busiest suburbs. Like a Monet painting come to life, you can find Muston Park’s gorgeous wisteria tunnel in the heart of Chatswood.
And if images on social media are to be believed, the park is as Instagram-worthy as it gets so don’t forget to take your cameras along.
Muston Park, Chatswood
Parks and gardens in Sydney are currently immersed in the smells and colours of spring. Muston Park has also come to life with beautiful clusters of wisteria taking over the premises. The park is named after William Thomas Muston, the original owner of the land and Mayor of Willoughby 1890. Located off Penshurst Street in Chatswood, Douglas Avenue and Warrah Lane are the two other entrances to the park.
The quiet spot includes swings, a rocketship with slide and a sand pit making it a pretty inclusive space for kids and adults. There’s also a cycling/pedestrian path if you want to burn off some calories or have an energising soak in the sun.
Aside from being bathed in purple wisteria, the park is also home to a Camphor Laurel, two Bunya Pines, a Moreton Bay Fig and an Oak which according to the Willoughby website could date back to the 1880s.
The wisteria in Muston Park is currently in bloom but only for a fleeting period of time. Read more about it here.
