Located on Lake Parramatta Reserve, the playground is far enough away from the Lake itself for anxious parents not to have to worry about little ones falling in. In fact, they would have to walk down a hill and cross the car park to come anywhere near the water, as can be seen in this picture.
The playground itself is a nice combination of wooden and more modern materials, well suited to it's bushland setting.
It has accessable equipment for less mobile children and is easy for little ones to move about in.
There is a great double slide and a set of swings.
There's also a chess set built into one of the park benches, so pack a picnic and enjoy your day.
