Koshigaya Park is the largest and most visited park in Campbelltown but many locals would be unaware of how it got its name. It is simply named after Campbelltown’s Japanese Sister City, Koshigaya. The city of Koshigaya is a ‘young’ city dating back to only 1958. It is situated on the Motoarakawa River, about 30km from Tokyo. Campbelltown is similar in that it was only officially declared a satellite city in the early 1960’s and it is 50km from the heart of Sydney.

Koshigaya Park is located on the corner of Camden Road and Hurley Street and reflects the ordered beauty of its namesake. There are decorative bushes and flowers, a tree-lined colonnade and ambling walkways. It’s a very relaxing place and it is also the centre for child-friendly activities. The playground gets an excellent workout.

The park is also the centre for events throughout the year like Australia Day and New Year celebrations and there is often free live entertainment like dance and cultural performances. The park is very disabled-friendly with wheelchair access and disability bathrooms.

And, of course, if you are visiting our fine city, Rydges Campbelltown will give you a warm welcome and look after all your accommodation needs.
