Head to Outfield, or bring your own picnic, and find a spot under the palm trees.
October 19, 2020
Ashfield Park is a picture-perfect example of Aussie outdoor culture; the park has centuries-old trees, there's a strong community that tends to the park's veggie garden, and there's a thriving bowlo, as well as free barbecues and sheltered picnic areas. The best part is the old palm trees that give the inner west suburb a taste of the tropics, providing heaps of shade for you to nurse a couple of cold drinks and stuff your face with pumpkin loaf and whipped ricotta, a specialty sweet-savoury snack from the close-by cafe Outfield. You're permitted to drink booze in the day in Ashfield Park, however, make sure you're all packed up by 9pm.
