Prospect Reservoir was built in 1886 to provide water for Sydney; although superceded by Warragamba Dam it is an emergency Sydney supply, hence not used for swimming and water activities. There are many shady, scenic places for a picnic, a small playground for children and plenty of open areas.

The reservoir is also a great place for cycling and you can access off-road cycle ways to Blacktown, Liverpool, and Parramatta.

Every 2nd and 4th Sunday the Prospect History Cottage is open from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
