  • the bushland ridge - forming a backdrop to the river flat area and covered with dry eucalypt forest
  • the major green link from the park to suburbs in the south.

Waterplay area closure

Part of the waterplay at Rocks Riverside Park will be closed from 4 to 15 December 2023, weather conditions permitting, while the yellow water play channels are repainted and the stainless steel around the splash pad is also painted, to increase the resistance of the surfaces.
