Putney Park playground is a marvellous place! This is a water play playground, fine for a very sunny winter’s day and just sublime in summer. My family has been having fun at Putney Park for over a decade…..mostly nude.
The humungous slide is a big draw for the older children, little ones need to sit on mum or dad’s lap though, it’s pretty scary.

Pellisier Road Putney 2112
The water features make this is terrific spot for the under fives, though they always have to be watched very closely.
The water play area has two landscaped paddling pools linked by a little river. There is a bubble beach area and lots of space for kids to splash about, plus huge coloured squares, pyramids and balls dotted here and there which the kids can play around.
Just beside the water play area is a tall metal trellis structure with lots of steps. At the top is the entrance to the long tube slide where a notice clearly states that young children must be accompanied by an adult. This is a swift and very thrilling slide, the longest seen in Sydney by the author.
There is also is a very adventurous playground close to the water at the northern end of the park. Lots of the equipment is beyond the reach of most under fives but it’s good for older siblings.
There is a pyramid-shaped rope climbing frame in the park and a junior play structure. Beside these on the flat grassy area are barbecues and shaded picnic tables.
Nearest takeaway coffee: BYO
Toilets: Toilet blocks beside both playground areas
Enclosed: No, but the water play area is semi-enclosed by a stone wall. No fencing along Parramatta River.
Mum’s report: This is a lovely spot, especially if you have children of different ages, or need to bring little ones with big ones. The little ones love splashing in the pools and river and the big ones can spend ages climbing in the huge rope structure and scare themselves silly in the tube slide.
Parking: Free carpark near water play area, entrance in Pellisier Road
