The newly opened kids space at Prince Alfred Park

Prince Alfred Park is an ever popular inner city park, situated right behind busy Central train station. You would not associate the Redfern area as being a kid friendly area at all, however this park has undergone a major $9 million facelift thanks to the City of Sydney, and this is exciting for all of us, including families. The area is getting a facelift as Prince Alfred Park has now become kid friendly, all thanks to the new kids playground that opened up on Tuesday the 30 April 2013 in particular.

A glimpse of new kids play

If your family loves to play tennis and/or basketball, those facilities: tennis courts and basketball courts are available for hire here by booking in advance with the local council. Prince Alfred Park is still well known for the tennis and basketball action, as well as the ample green space and dog walking facilities where the families of nearby Surry Hills also take their dogs for a walk here quite often. A great bike riding trail is also enjoyed here where some of us, families included prefer to enjoy a leisurely stroll connecting Surry Hills and Redfern on this walkway.

Ample BBQ facilities pave the way for great family friendly picnics to enjoy. Plenty of space for your kids to run around and play tips. There are off leash spaces for dogs to also run around and play.

The traditional swings are staying

Excitedly, the new kids play land (although sadly has a little graffiti already) is a mini sand pit with a yellow hot air balloon play plan, together with one of he cutest mini slides decorated as an elephant. This area has just opened, as at the time of writing this. Across the road, the traditional swings remain.

The new aquatic centre, due to open in mid 2013.

Many locals and visitors to this park are looking forward to the delayed aquatic centre to open up sesame, and this fun is situated right next to the new mini kids playground. The council anticipates that the pool is scheduled to open in mid 2013 (again, as at the time of writing this), and to thank the people of Sydney for their patience, one months free pool entry will be available at this stage. This will provide more swimming space in the city. Families are looking forward to this too.
