Adamstown marks the start of the Fernleigh Track, which continues through Adamstown Heights. The track runs for about 15 kilometres along a disused railway line and finishes in Belmont. A popular spot for walkers, runners and cyclists, the track retains the former train tunnel, which runs under the Pacific Highway. The rustic-looking brick lined tunnel is regularly used for photoshoots.
The area also has a few parks. Hudson Park and Pickering Oval contain cricket pitches, which see a lot of action over the summer from various clubs. A third park is located on the eastern side of the suburb off Randall Parade and features play equipment and an open grassy area.
