Like its array of residents, the lifestyle in Ryde is incredibly varied with so much to choose from. Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre was home to the 2000 Sydney Olympics water polo and is now a venue enjoyed by the entire community – not just for swimming, but also basketball, indoor soccer and more.
Ryde also sports its own sizeable shopping centre (complete with cinema), but if the thing you’re after can’t be found there, bargain hunters will love the factory outlets just a suburb away in Homebush. Of course, Ryde also enjoys a large variety of all those good things you expect in the ideal suburb – casual eateries, parks, a bowling club… it’s all in Ryde.
