Pirrama Park Playground

The innovative Pirrama Park in Pyrmont honours the first Australians who lived in the area. 'Pirrama' means ‘rocking stone’ in the Gadigal language.The park is located just around the corner from Darling Harbour and the Star City Casino complex. It's a fabulous spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a picnic or play in the awesome playground.

The large inclusive children's playground is full of loads of different play equipment, including a large spinner (which is ideal for children in wheelchairs); climbing frames; musical instruments; small tower slide; whirly gigs; swings and a large sandpit. There's also a water play area which is the perfect place to cool down in summer.

The playground is not fenced so you do need to keep an eye on wandering little ones as there is water close by, and also the area is frequented by cyclists who zoom by without much consideration for tiny tots who may get in their way!

There's ample bench seating along the beautiful sandstone walls that surround the playground and you will find some shade available under unbrellas, trees and a pergola.

Just near the playground is an excellent toilet block. There is also a space for a kiosk but at the present time it is not in operation. But never fear you can grab a caffeine fix at an excellent cafe called the Zebra Lounge which is about 200m away.

There are also several BBQs and picnic spots as well as a large grassy lawn which is an ideal area to dine alfresco. There are promenades for children to ride their scooters on and loads of space to kick a ball and fly a kite, which will have all the kids jumping for joy!

How do you get there?

You will find quite a bit of paid street parking available right next to Pirrama Park. If you need to catch public transport to reach the park, you can jump on the 389 bus at Town Hall. Or if you are feeling super fit you can walk there from Darling Harbour!
