    Centennial Parklands playgrounds just got more kid-friendly

With stacks of equipment to try, nature nearby and cafés in close proximity, Centennial Parklands is home to some of Sydney’s most popular children’s playgrounds. But we have just gone one step further and made our two largest playgrounds even more kid-friendly with the addition of a new softfall material. 

The Centennial Homestead Playground in Centennial Park and the Queens Park Shed Playground in Queens Park have both received an upgrade with the installation of the new rubber material.

The upgrade means that we have created a more safe, durable and even playing surface for children to enjoy – and the big plus, it is wheelchair and pram accessible too!

We think they look great!

Take a look below… What do you think?

Homestead Playground

Located adjacent to the Centennial Homestead, this playground provides an engaging and experiential space for kids aged 0 – 5 years, incorporating interactive sound features with modern play equipment such as giant guiros, a water feature, ‘hug-me’ poles and turtle sculptures. The design incorporates timbers and heritage stone gathered from within the Parklands as well as handy picnic tables and areas.

Queens Park Playground

Adjacent to Market Street and close to the Queens Park Shed, this playground caters for all ages, with climbing frames, slides, interactive play components and shade structures that offer relief on a hot summer’s day.


Getting there

Most of the Parklands playgrounds are located conveniently close to free street parking and city public transport routes, making it easy for parents and carers to access the play areas seven days a week!
