This playground was built with bigger kids in mind. There are towering climbing nets that lead up into a series of dare devil slides, as well as a 33m long double flying fox. The sandpits will keep younger kids occupied and the playground is also surrounded by natural parklands which are perfect for family picnics.
The towering slide is the main drawcard of this cool new playground in the inner city. Children have to climb up a fortress to get to the top, so once again it has been built with older kids in mind. However there are swings and small climbing nets available for little people.
Located in beautiful Parramatta Park, this playground has equipment suitable for all ages. There is a cool slide, loads of little trampolines, horizontal climbing frames, a flying fox, water play equipment, sand pits, musical instruments and loads of different style of swings.
Address: Parramatta Park (enter near Queens Road Gate), Parramatta
With a galaxy net, tower slide, rodeo boards, hip hop swings, gliders, sky surfer, basket swings, flying fox and so much more, this playground has something for everyone. Pack the scooters and picnic baskets as there are bike paths and loads of space to chillax in.
Affectionately known as the Rocket Playground, this delightful playground has play equipment suitable for all ages. There's a designated toddler area and of course the towering rocket which will delight older kids as they climb up it and then slide down it. There are large sandpits, swings and smaller slides too.
