The Macquarie River Bicentennial Park was established as part of Bathurst's 1988 Bicentennial Celebrations. The park lies adjacent to the Macquarie River at the lower end of William Street.

The Macquarie River Bicentennial Park Playground is a great facility located on the banks of the Macquarie River. The playground provides loads of great activities for children with swings, slides, huge climbing frame, rockers and cubby houses. The park is located only a short stroll from the CBD and Bathurst Aquatic Centre. After the kids have had a play what better way to top off a great day out than with a leisurely stroll along the picturesque Macquarie River.

The Macquarie River Bicentennial is also an alcohol free area, for more details please visit Alcohol Free Zones...
