A new playground to get excited about

As a scout for family-friendly suburbs in Sydney, the greater Ryde area has always been high on my list. Without the high-density living of the inner city, green public spaces abound and the hottest new recreation spot in the area has just opened in the suburb of Macquarie Park.

City of Ryde Councillor Penny Pedersen, joined the community festivities on 6th of February, 2018 for the official opening of Elouera Reserve and couldn't help taking a jump on one of the trampolines in the playground (pictured below). This is one of those parks that makes even the adults go 'Wow, I want to have a go on all the play equipment!'

The park features include:

Swings for various ages
Trampolines
Colourful art installation inspired by the Boronia flower, that doubles as adjoining cubby houses (with bridge and slide).
Illuminated paths at night, between the park and the station
Embankment slides and soft play area
Flying fox for adventurous kids
Spinner
Gigantic hammock for lazing
Terraced BBQ and shaded picnic table area for family or mother's group gatherings
Water bottle refill station and
An expansive grassy area for that game of cricket or footy with friends

And did I mention the park's handy location? It's across the road from Macquarie Centre and Macquarie Park train station, on Waterloo Road, with nearby parking in Lachlan Avenue.

With so many workers, students and families now occupying the bustling Macquarie Park precinct, this break out space is much needed and will provide an alternative to lunching in the Macquarie Centre food court. It's also a great spot for local mothers group play dates and after school and weekend meet ups.

It must be noted that the playground isn't fenced, nor does it have toilets, and though trees have been planted, they are not yet providing extensive shading, so you'll still require a watchful eye and plenty of slip, slop, slap in summer.

The best idea might be to grab that morning coffee and do the nappy change at nearby Macquarie Centre, then head out to the park and let the kids burn off their energy.

Are you a local to the Macquarie Park area? What does this new park mean to you? We'd love to hear your thoughts so feel free to comment, or post in the Sydney Mums Group discussion page. Does Elouera Reserve's impressive design and cool equipment, outweigh the need for fencing and toilets?
