"decent subrub"

I have been to Rydalmere quite a few times days and nights and fortunately i couldn't find anything wrong specially in the context of housing commission. The property market is booming and there is a lot of apartments construction going on and to buy one of those one needs to be financially strong and i guess HC people won't be able to afford this. That's the reason you will notice in the future these people are/will be moving out of these places due to the affordability crisis and also govt. is cleaning off this area by getting rid of some part of not so good demographics..
And off course Parramatta greater region is expanding this one falls under this as well.

The apartment prices are sky rocketing due to its strategic location especially it maintains a great balance between Parramatta and northern side of Sydney i.e Ryde, Epping and so on.
Pros
  • Great location
  • In the heart of city
  • Close to everything

"Friendly suburb"

Having lived in Rydalmere for 20+ years and with my parents still residing in the suburb, I can say what a great suburb this is. Many memories growing up as a child from great neighbours, high school only a 10 minute walk away, St Johns Park and the reserve/bush like setting that it offered. Shops and stations are very accessible giving you easy, fast and reliable services to access Parramatta and Sydney CBD's plus the University My parents continue to live in Rydalmere due to its quiet location and the overall friendliness of neighbours is great, I remember the Street parties that used to be held yearly since I was 8 years old.
Pros
  • Friendly neighbours
  • Lots of young families

EveE Do you know if they still hold these street parties? I'm trying to find 'Sydney's Friendliest Street' for a story.
Thanks.

"A suburb with two Identies"

Rydalmere is great for access to most of Sydney. Trains, busses, ferries are all available. It is close to UWS (for students), close to Eastwood and Homebush (for great food shopping), and only 5 minutes from Parramatta.
It is important to note that Rydalmere North of Victoria Road is different to the South-side. South there is a lot of housing commission, so quite a few kids wandering round. Ermington shopping centre (as featured on "Houso's") is on the South-side
North of Victoria Road is the quiet, friendly suburb that is probably one of the best kept secrets in Sydney.
Pros
  • Lots of young families
  • Friendly neighbours
  • Great bakery
