If you do not already know Meadowbank Park then now is the time to get over there for a visit. The new regional playground is really fantastic and the walks and sports areas all alongside the Parramatta make this so scenic. Meadowbank Park and playground make an excellent day out for Sydney families from all over our huge city.
NB Aim to go there on a day when there will not be kids sport on at the playing fields. Parking can be very difficult when there is lots of sport happening. Sundays are probably better than Saturdays during school terms. Mid-week is even better.
Meadowbank Park and Playground
This is a huge recreation area. There are soccer and cricket pitches, plus netball and tennis courts. There are walking and cycling paths throughout this park, which is part of the Ryde Riverwalk. There is a regional playground, built in 2022, which is fenced and very, very large. Right beside it are toilets and BBQs and seating area. And then there is the skate park too!! Such a lot to do in Meadownbank Park, take a tour through all our photos to check it out and plan your visit.

Public transport: You can catch a train to Meadowbank Station then walk, or a ferry to Meadowbank hard, or try the bus, see
Parking: Meadowbank Park is vast and has several car parking areas. The best car parking for the playground is the large car park by the Meadowbank Park Tennis Courts. This is accessed from Constitution Road West by turning down the small road which is opposite Federal Road.
There are also car parking spaces on Ross Smith Ave which are handy.
The main entry to Meadowbank Park is at the end of Adelaide Street in Meadowbank and there is a very large car park here by the netball courts. However, it is a longer walk to the playground from there.
All these car parks get hectic when Saturday sport is on, as I found out! I ended up visiting all of them and was glad I did not have any little kids with me. But I did find a spot in the end.
Meadowbank Skate Park
Skateboarders, and scooter and bmx riders too, have got a huge skate park to explore. There is a three-metre deep Olympic-standard competition bowl, an asphalt track for beginners, a climbing wall and even a table tennis court
