"Riverside Suburb"

Just purchased!! neighbours are lovely. I just love how the children can play safely on this quiet street.I don't have to pack up the bikes anymore!!! "yipeee" as the park is at the bottom of the street. Sunday mornings is now a short walk to the river to feed the ducks. How relaxing is the ferry into the city!! you can even get a coffee as you get on!!
I feel a little guilty writting this as the suburb is not well known but I think this will change as its discovered!! have a look for yourself!!!!!!!

  • Bike track
  • Close to ferry
  • Quiet & Community

"Great suburb for families, with a very social community vibe"

One of Sydney's hidden gems. Adjacent to one of the largest riverside parkland spaces in Sydney, and very quiet. Great suburb for families. Handy location for heading in any direction, and for special events at the Olympic Stadium you're only 5 minutes drive from where you can catch the free event bus at Ermington Shops - you can be seated at the stadium 20 minutes after leaving home.
Pros
  • Quiet & Community
  • Recreation Space
  • Transport
  • Open Fields
Cons
  • Make sure your roof space is secure - there are a lot of possums looking for somewhere to live

"Wonderful area to let the kids grow up, where most know everyone else"

Quietly found on the Parramatta River next to the large meadowbank Playing Fields and Ryde Parramatta Golf Course, this area is very unknown, off the main road, but having great public transport options and if you like the open recreational spaces to run, walk or bike around Melrose Park is for you. The local public school is small - a country school in the city, where it doesn't take long to feel 'belonged'

"Great suburb to bring up a family"

Having moved here 3 years ago, this is a great suburb for a young growing family. So many parks in the areas, lots of shops with Top Ryde just opening again up the road, and there is a great mixture of people of all ages that live here
