About Mac Park Social

Mac Park Social is a series of pop-up events using different spaces around Macquarie Park. Aimed at attracting residents and local workers away from their desks and out into the fresh air, the events will feature food trucks, live music and outdoor dining spaces.

Mac Park Social is proudly hosted by the City of Ryde with the generous support of the NSW Government as part of their $50 million CBDs Revitalisation Program. The Program aims to increase connectedness and engagement with CBDs, and accelerate behavioural change as people readjust to living, working, playing, and investing post COVID-19.
