Arrgghhh… this is a huge task!! The aim is to list the very best playgrounds in Sydney in this post, alphabetically by suburb.

Click on the name of the playground to find out more about it. Most the these links are to full blog posts on this website where you will find all the info you need to plan a visit: shade, nearest coffee, where to park, a map showing location etc etc

Some link to other websites e.g. council sites and other blogs and these tend to have a lot less detail and photos.

      Thank you Joni!! I shall get out and about and add these in. Must get to the water playground and in fact I must do a post with all the ones I know about as they are such good fun and idea for the hot days that February usually brings. Many thanks.

    Thanks Seana. My almost 3yr and 18mo and I are always on the hunt for new playgrounds to explore.

    I would vote for adding the following 5 playgrounds – guess it depends on what the criteria for ‘best’ is though 🙂

    * Bray’s Bay Reserve, Rhodes
    * Cabaritia Park, Cabaritia
    * Sydney Park, Alexandria
    * King George Park, Rozelle
    * Bales Park, Chatswood

      Great to hear from you. You’ve reminded me of bales Park which I used to take the kids to a lot when we lived in Willoughby. I will add these to the list – thank you Kellie, much appreciated!

      Thanks Kellie, I’ve found links for all of these and added them in. I have Sydney Park until St Peters which is the official address but will also put it down as Alexandria too. Thank you so much for your help!!
