Ah, this playground is sublime, right on the glittering blue harbour, great views.
But a horror if you have a wild child who might leap into that glittering harbour.
If you do, steer well clear, this playground will wait until your child has calmed down.
Pirrama Park Playground
Pirrama Road, Pyrmont
This playground is part of Pirrama Park, right at the end of Harris Street. It’s a groovy playground with an inner-city feel, set right on the working part of Sydney Harbour.
The equipment is good, especially the water spouts, fantastic on a hot day in the city. There are swings, a terrific rope climbing frame, great big sandpit under shade. The kids will love the spicas and slides as well.
There’s plenty of grassy space to kick a ball in this park, though you may lose a few into the water if you kick too hard.
There are nice wide, flat concrete paths which are good for bikes and trikes.
Enjoy the urban harbour views from the shaded picnic tables or the many benches. Dangle your feet into the water to stay cool.
Cafe: Pirrama Park Cafe is right beside the playground, with plenty seats in the shade.
Toilets: Yes, modern ones beside the cafe.
Fenced: Not at all, and right beside the water
Shade: Yes, some from trees and umbrellas
Parking : Some spaces at the end of Harris Street and more on Pirrama Road, can get very busy though.
Extra: Enjoy a stroller walk around the paths in Pirrama park.
