"More than a home"

Harrington Park is more than a home. My wife and I moved to Harrington Park in 2010 and have never looked back. You only have to walk around the lake to begin to enjoy the many areas you can totally get lost whilst still living close to the city. Tranquil parks and lakes and birdlife are just ther begginning of what is special and endearing about our beloved suburb. Just ask anyone you pass on your walk who will give you a smile and a wave.
Pros
  • Great neighbourhood spirit
  • Quiet
  • Big houses and yards (for dogs and kids)
  • Great parks, sporting facilities, shopping centre & school
  • Perfect for families with children of all ages

"Feels like the Country but still close to the City & all the mod cons!!!"

We have lived in Harrington Park for over 3 years now. It is a perfect piece of paradise as far as convenience to shopping, schools & leisure goes. You are also close to trains being a small drive to Campbelltown, however the roads are congested towards Narellan Road depending on the time you travel. We are from the Country so it was important for us to still have a sense of space, even though the land is obviously smaller. There are fantastic walking tracks which are even better now with Harrington Grove being established, you can walk around kms of lakes, parks & sporting facilities which suit every childs age up to their teens! For fitness freaks there is also many new gyms in the area & lots of training groups in the local parks which you can attend. The public school is fantastic, however it is growing in size - but the staff are exceptional & their effort reflects this through the school. There are Private High Schools being built, but it desperately needs a Public High School for the direct area - the demand is definately there. You have a great little Shopping Centre with a Coles & specialty stores within a 5 minute drive no matter which part of Harrington Park you live in & you are a stones throw from Narellan Town Centre which has everything you could need or head a little further down the road to Macarthur Square which is massive! For the mad handyman there is also Bunnings & Masters within a 5 minute drive also. This place has everything going for it, so close to everything yet tucked away in a beautifully well planned & landscaped Estate. With most of the building being completed there is no nuisance noise of builders carrying on. This place is taking off with so much development around it, yet Harrington Park is like a little island in the middle of it oblivious to what is going on outside!
Pros
  • Great parks, sporting facilities, shopping centre & school
  • Perfect for families with children of all ages
  • Estate has beautiful landscaping and established trees
  • Great neighbourhood spirit
  • Quiet

"Friendly neighbours, quiet country feel."

My eldest son built his home in Harrington Park in 2001, he loved living in the suburb so much that my wife and I followed him. We sold our home at Voyager Point on the Georges River and then built in Endeavour Circuit Harrington Park in 2005. I am in my early sixties and think that the area is excellent for both famlies and retires. The streets are free of traffic and safe for children to play and to walk the family dog, it is even quieter at night. There is very little to no vandalisum from the large number of well-behaved families with children. I am proud to be a resident.
Pros
  • Big houses and yards (for dogs and kids)
  • Great neighbourhood spirit
  • Quiet
Cons
  • Public Transport (to Sydney)

"Rather superb place to live if you want/have dogs and kids and dislike the rat race."

We looked throughout SW Sydney before settling in Harrington Park and after 6 months we couldn't be happier. Wonderful neighbourhood that's graffiti free and where you see everyone walking their dog, playing with their kids or mowing their lawns and tending their gardens on a Sunday. People say hi to one another and soon enough you know your whole street (if you want to) but without anyone being overly nosey. The shopping centre has most of what you'd want and anything else you can get 2min away at Narellan centre. Its certainly not in the sticks and we're both at work in under an hour but we truly love that its dead quiet at night; no aircraft, no drunken louts and no cars. Nearest trainline to the CBD is Campbelltown but that'll change soon enough with the line being extended out to Leppington.
We looked at Harrington Park on a friend's recommendation and now two more friends are looking in the Suburb and another is building two streets away in Harrington Grove so yes, we'd recommend it to others!
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Big houses and yards (for dogs and kids)
  • Great neighbourhood spirit
Cons
  • Would love a few more licensed restaurants
  • Public Transport (to Sydney)
  • Not much really!
