Visitors can choose from several attractions that are open on a regular day to day basis. For instance, The Crescent offers a wonderful outdoor amphitheatre at the centre of Parramatta Park.
This place holds several concerts and events all throughout the year. As a result, guests will be able to experience different events in every visit.
The council has also taken the necessary efforts to keep the place in tip top shape. A good example of this was the major upgrade The Crescent received in 2015.
