St Johns Park is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. St Johns Park is located 35kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government areas of the City of Fairfield and is part of the Greater Western Sydney region.


St Johns Park was originally home to the Cabrogal people who inhabited the broad Liverpool-Fairfield area. When the First Fleet arrived in Australia, the colonial administration designated this area the parish of St John. Nienteenth century maps indicate a St Johns Farm in the area and it is through this connection that the suburb gained its name.

St Johns Park sits beside Clear Paddock Creek which runs along 500m. The 'Restoring the Waters' project, which was the first of its kind in Australia, consisted of the restoration of the concrete channel into a living stream. It took seven years to plan and build and was funded with the assistance of a $1.33 million grant from the NSW State Government through its Stormwater Trust.
