About Lidcombe Oval
Lidcombe Oval is located in the Wyatt Park sporting complex and is one of Sydney's iconic suburban sportsgrounds. Opened in 1933 the Oval has been used for various sports over the years most noticeably rugby league and cycling.
Between 1967 and 1989 the Oval was the home of the Western Suburbs Magpies in the NSW Rugby League. Today the Oval is used in the winter season by the Auburn Warriors Junior Rugby League Football Club.
In the summer season the Lidcombe Auburn Cycle Club uses the cycle track that runs round the perimeter of the Oval for cycle training and racing.
The Oval is a 10 minute walk from both Auburn and Lidcombe Stations.
An off-leash dog area is located on the northern side, adjacent to Haslam's Creek.
