Zetland is a small suburb in the inner east of Sydney that is home to an increasing number of apartment blocks and delicious places to eat and play. Once upon a time it was a semi industrial area but thanks to developers who saw it's close proximity to the CBD, it has now been gentrified and is a sought after residential area by young urban families.
This super duper playground is located on the border of Zetland and Waterloo. It's surrounded by apartment blocks so it's not easy to find from the main drag of Zetland. The best way to access it is to walk down Amelia Street from O'Dea Ave. The towering slide and brightly coloured fort will entertain kids of all ages for hours. There are toilets, BBQS, ping pong tables, swings and a green space too - but little shade.

Mary O'Brien Reserve - Cnr of Tilford St & Joynton Ave
With a great shaded playground and water splash pad (unshaded), this is the best spot to cool down in summer time. There's also loads of green space to run around, fly a kite or kick a ball.
