Burwood Park has such a lot to look at, it’s a lovely place to spend a day, there’s lots to see and do, including a good fenced playground. There’s also a terrific cafe here, The Picnic Burwood, which is well worth a visit.
Burwood Park and Playground
Park Avenue Burwood 2134
You will not run out of things to do at Purwood park. There’s a pavilion, and the War Memorial Arch and then the Sandakan Memorial to visit. There are tennis courts and a cricket pitch plus a casual playing field and the popular outdoor chess board too.
There are outdoor table tennis tables, bring your own balls and bats. With plenty of BBQs and picnic tables as well as The Picnic Cafe Burwood, there’s no reason not to stay all day,
Burwood Park playground is not modern or groovy, but it certainly gets the job done. This large, oval playground is at one side of the grassy expanse of Burwood Park. There are seats dotted around the perimeter of the play area and the picnic tables and a barbecue are nearby.
The play equipment includes swings, spring rockers, seesaws, spiral slides, wobble walk, tunnel, viewing bubble and flying fox. Children also like the huge chessboard near the toilet block, although the chess players may not appreciate their input to the game.
