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.
