Whether you like to walk, run or cycle, the famous ‘river walk’ is probably Penrith’s #1 place to exercise. The whole thing is around 6km in length and takes between 45 minutes to an hour to walk. Many people call it the ‘bridge to bridge’ walk and start at the M4 overpass, walking along River Road at Emu Plains before crossing Victoria Bridge and coming back down Nepean Street. It’s a beautiful walk at almost any time of the day.

There’s always a lot of sport going on at Jamison Park, particularly soccer and netball, but its surrounds are perfect for a walk, run or cycle. There’s great paved areas, a dog park that is very popular with locals and some really good stretches of land to tackle whatever exercise you prefer. If you live in the South Penrith or Jamisontown area, Jamison Park is the perfect place to exercise.
