Kings Park is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Kings Park is located 40 km west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Blacktown and part of the Greater Western Sydney region.


Kings Park is bounded by the Richmond railway line to the west, the Westlink M7 to the north, Sunnyholt Road to the east and Breakfast Creek to the south. The southern half of the suburb is industrial while the northern half is newer residential homes.

The suburb has three Christian church denominations represented, Catholic, Brethren and Pentecostal. A Hindu Temple is also in the suburb, while a Sikh temple is located nearby.
