Is this Sydney's best playground?



Blaxland Riverside Park


Set over 3 hectares, Blaxland Riverside Park is every child's dream. With so much space to run around on and playground equipment to suit all ages and abilities, it quite possibly is the biggest and best playground in our beautiful city.

Locating this playground can be quite tricky for newbies. Basically it's at the end of Jamieson Street in Newington (right next to the Silverwater Jail!). The Parramatta River runs alongside the park and the playground runs from just near the river almost up to the perimeter of the correctional facility.

What equipment is there?

The following can be found in the play areas:

a large water playground
climbing ropes and frames
double flying fox
tunnels
rock climbing walls
slides
huge spining play disk
swings of all shapes and sizes
huge tree house
bike/scooter paths



Blaxland Riverside Park


All of the fabulous play equipment is spread out so you don't feel as though you are constantly fighting with other people for space. However this is one very popular park on weekends and during the school holidays, so our advice to you is to arrive early as parking is at a premium during these periods.

Can I have a birthday party here?

The park is a very popular sport for birthday parties. Bunting can be seen flickering in the wind in all the different picnic shelters throughout the park. The spaces cannot be booked in advance so you have to get there early to grab a prime spot!

Is there coffee?

Your caffeine fix can be found at either the kiosk at the top of the playground, or at the Armory Wharf Cafe down near the river. The coffee is very average (in our humble opinion), so if you are a coffee snob, we would suggest that you bring your own. The cafe serves both breakfast and lunch and the kiosk sells light snacks. And as there are BBQs and picnic facilties available, you can bring all of your own food along as well.

Do you think this is Sydney's biggest and best playground? Or is there a better one that this wonderful city of ours has to offer?
