The third oldest settlement in Australia, Ryde was named after the town of Ryde on the Isle of Wight, U.K. It is recognised as one of Sydney’s most significant growth suburbs. Located 13km north-west of the Sydney CBD and 8km east of Parramatta, Ryde is a rare mix of a bustling urban atmosphere and the quieter suburban lifestyle. It’s a desirable residential address for families, a destination for business people and a popular tourist spot for the many people who come to the area to see the nearby Olympic village.
Top Ryde City is a vibrant new precinct which has revitalised the area, encompassing extensive commercial space, a multitude of residential apartments and more than 270 specialty stores. A major recreational attraction is the Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre which hosted events for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Riverside Corporate Park is known as the area’s ‘silicon valley’, home to many multinational corporations.
Architecturally Ryde is home to primarily modern houses and apartments, as few of the historic original properties remain. The many schools in the suburb reflect its family orientation.
