Private Events held in Parks and Reserves
Blayney Shire Council maintains a number of parks & reserves which may be used for private functions. A private function is an event from which the general public is excluded. The applicant is not entitled to exclusive use of any reserve area and access by the general public is to be available at all times. If the event involves use of barbecues, undercover areas, or other facilities available at a reserve, please be considerate of other users.
For more information contact Council's Environmental Services Department by phoning 6368 2104 or book on-line.
Heritage Park, located in Blayney’s main street includes a mouse house, flying fox, climbing gym, swings, giant chess board and a sand pit. Heritage Park was first constructed in 1993 in time for the Blayney sesqui- centenary. Prior to this the land was used as a BMX venue, waste land and an area for grazing stock. In the late 90’s, community groups became involved with the park’s development and various improvements were made. In 2006 generous funding was sourced through corporate and community organisations. The injection of this funding facilitated the construction and provision of state of the art playground equipment which has become the envy of the Central West region and a focal point for the Shire’s community. The development of Heritage Park included the installation of a ‘Mouse Wheel’ which is the first of its kind in Australia.
In 2012, Heritage Park won the National Parks’ Management Award in recognition of excellence in Park management by Parks and Leisure Australia. By winning this award, Blayney received national recognition for their work.
