    The three best playgrounds in Centennial Parklands

 

Centennial Parklands has a range of playgrounds – but three particularly stand out as some of the best in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

In no particular order…

 

Paddington Gates Playground

Located between the historic Paddington Gates and Centennial Park Reservoir No.2, this delightful playground (originally known as “the Rocket Park“) caters for children aged between 1-12 years.

The double see-saw and two play spaces have been created to cater to the varying needs of children, with climbing, swinging, spinning, balancing and sliding equipment, as well as a quiet play area. The ‘younger area’ of the playground is fenced.

There is a shaded area with a barbecue installed close by and a bookable picnic site nearby.

The playground is also one of our most accessible, with a Liberty Swing (a swing system that allows access by kids who use wheelchairs) and an accessible toilet located nearby.

Café Playground

This playground – one of the most popular in the Parklands – is located adjacent to the Centennial Parklands Dining in the heart of Centennial Park.

The playground provides an engaging and experiential experience for kids 0 – 5 year olds, incorporating interactive sound features, with modern play equipment, giant guiros, a water feature, ‘hug-me’ poles and turtle sculptures.

The design incorporates timbers and heritage stone gathered from within the Parklands and picnic tables and areas.

 

Café Playground is definitely one of the busiest playgrounds in the Parklands

Queens Park Playground

This playground is located adjacent to Darley Road, Queens Park, and next to the popular Queens Park Shed.

It caters for all ages and features climbing frames, slides, interactive play equipment and shade structures. The playground is fenced with grassed areas inside to sit and enjoy a snack in between playtime!

There is also an amenities block adjacent to the playground.

 

Queens Park Playground is ideally located adjacent Queens Park Shed!

Three goodies for sure, but we have more. Not only outdoor playgrounds, but we also have an indoor play centre for those wetter days!
