Christison Park

The park is perched on top of the ocean cliffs, providing sweeping views of the ocean and Sydney Harbour. There are three fields used for rugby union, soccer and touch football, and one hockey field (No. 4). One of the ovals (No .1) is floodlit for night training. The park has three cricket practice wickets.

Located along the northern boundary of Christison Park, there are five separate fitness stations which offer a unique exercise trail. There is also an interactive exercise station incorporating cardio and movable equipment. All equipment is accompanied by instructional signage.
