Sydney: Olympic Park

22 December 2017

Olympic Park is a suburb in western Sydney that was rehabilitated and re-constructed for the 2000 Summer Olympics. The facilities are impressive but we saw very few people. It felt like a modern day ghost town, especially for mid-day Friday. They had a sign that boasted about the number of people who work and visit the area, which to me is a tell tale sign they realize the development is not living up to expectations. The City is moving forward with Master Plan 2030 to make it a more vibrant community. I hope they are successful. As it is, we only needed a few hours to get lonely and decide to move along.
