About Hornsby Park

The Hornsby Park site comprises 59 hectares of bushland and open space surrounding an old rock quarry. Remnant buildings of the quarry crushing plant can still be found at the end of Quarry Road, perched above the quarry void. To the east of the quarry is Old Mans Valley which has a mix of cleared and bushland areas that are currently used for mountain bike riding. Hornsby Park is also home to Hornsby Aquatic and Leisure Centre, a children’s playground and formal gardens. Each of these areas has its own distinct features that make them suitable for a wide range of activities.

Hornsby Park comprises a number of features of historical interest including the State Heritage listed Old Mans Valley Cemetery and early settler relics. These will be preserved in the development of Hornsby Park, linking its history to its exciting future.
