Sydney Olympic Park offers an outstanding urban environment with a unique array of recreational and sporting facilities. Over 35 kilometres of cycling and walking paths and scenic boardwalks exist within beautiful parklands, rare saltmarshes, remnant forest, a waterbird refuge and mangrove forest, as well as places of historical colonial and naval significance. The Park's rich biodiversity includes over 400 native plant species and over 200 native vertebrate animal species, some that are threatened and endangered.
Building on the legacy of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games for the people of Sydney and Australia, the 640 hectare Park continues to set the standard for environmental management and urban development in its progression from an events centre to a new community. There are now over 120 organisations with 10,000 employees and residents are expected to move move in to Sydney Olympic Park in 2012.
Each year, approximately 10 million visitors enjoy the diverse range of leisure, entertainment, cultural, sporting and educational activities available within the Park.
