An attempt to visit every suburb in Sydney.

After the numbered footpaths of Lalor Park , I continue traversing the streets of Western Sydney to arrive at  Kings Langley

Almost the Hills: Kings Langley

After the numbered footpaths of Lalor Park, I continue traversing the streets of Western Sydney to arrive at 

Kings Langley

As just alluded to, Kings Langley is the northern neighbour of my previous suburb Lalor Park. This means that the way in is by walking on this road. 

Before starting on the suburb, I was treated to a quick peek at Parramatta's skyline in the distance. Not as exciting as the real city skyline but I dig it. 

Anyway, on to the suburb. 

The past couple of suburbs have had a proper old school Western Sydney vibe, with modest older houses. Despite still being in Blacktown Council, Kings Langley is a little bit more Hills-Districty, with newer (but not brand new) houses, 

some of which get pretty big. 

They also have this big tree. 

But that doesn't mean it's all bland. For instance, I'm pretty sure this house's garage door rollers have been installed backwards, 

and isn't this the flattest, whitest thing you've ever seen?

Walking through the houses on the colonially named James Cook Drive,

I reached this park, 

the colonially named Endeavour Park. 

The park features a fenced off dog area (sadly vacant today), 

some paths along the grass and trees, 

oh and a kids playground modelled after an old-timey ship (I assume Endeavour). 

They've actually gone all out on the theming here. For instance, here it says Tahiti,

and along the pathways are coordinates of points along Cook's voyage. 

If colonial history isn't your thing, you can instead enjoy these pointy trees. 

I left the park and continued on through suburban Kings Langley. This began with some tremendously round trees, 

and continued with a picnic table in some hilariously long grass.

After a short distance, I reached the local shopping centre which seemed as good a spot as any to stop for a lunch and bathroom break (after all, the Lalor Park toilet blocks are closed on weekends). This is a typical smaller suburban shopping centre, 

which importantly hosts the self-proclaimed best fish and chips in The West. 

It does look the part. 

For lunch, I shared with Mrs Completing Sydney (who wanted to come along today on my Western Sydney adventures and hasn't been mentioned at all) one of those seafood-not-baskets with fish, chips, camalari, prawn cutlets and those weird seafood sticks, and we also grabbed some grilled baby octopus. My low effort food review: the fried stuff was okay, the octopus was excellent. Is this actually the best fish and chips in The West? I don't know I don't usually eat fish and chips in The West. 

After that helpful consumer information, we (I now have to write we instead of I since you know the truth), continued through Kings Langley. 

From the shops, it's actually a short distance to reach the next suburb,

through more of the same flavoured Kings Langley suburbia. 

Of interest here is someone who's put an entire DVD cabinet outside their house for collection. 

Highlights for Margaret and David include the "Shrek The Halls" Christmas short and two copies of teen movie She's The Man. 

And, of course, if DVDs aren't your thing, the neighbour has a purple mattress out for offer. 

And with that, I both reached the end of the street and the suburb.

Kings Langley: Fine dining, fine films and parks that look like ships.
