It’s surprising that a city as densely populated as Sydney is so full of hidden gems. From glow worms to bioluminescent beaches, 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. Muston Park in Chatswood is home to a gorgeous wisteria tunnel and it’s as picture-perfect as it gets.
Muston Park, Chatswood
Parks and gardens in Sydney are currently immersed in the vibrant colours of spring. Muston Park also comes 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 a slide and a sand pit making it a fun space for both kids and adults. There’s also a cycling/pedestrian path if you want to burn off some calories.
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.
