Rouse Hill Regional Park and Playground

Rouse Hill Regional Park and its adventure playground make for an excellent family day out in Western Sydney.

Rouse Hill Regional Park has such a lot going for it. It’s a dog-friendly park, there are BBQs and picnic shelters, you can ride your bike or trike along over 2km of paths, there are short walks including one to the very pretty Second Ponds Creek and then, the exciting adventure playground.

This is a park beloved by locals Hills District residents, and also a place that is well worth the drive for families from further afield in Sydney. I visited early one morning with no children, so you see it in these pictures with no families around. But beware, this park and playground do get very busy.

Love this yarning circle , and also love the natural bushy feel of this playground

You can also add a slice of living history to your family day out. The early 1800s homestead of Rouse Hill Estate is very close. Managed by Museums of History NSW, this estate includes the 1888 Rouse Hill schoolhouse and the site of the 1804 ‘Vinegar Hill’ convict rebellion. At the time of writing it is open on Sundays from 10am – 4pm.

Mum’s report: A great place for the family plus bikes to spend the day. The only issue is that it is so good that it can get very crowded. If the picnic and barbecue areas by the playground are too busy, there are several others throughout the park.

Hiring the pavilions: Crebra and Fibrosa Pavilions are available for hire. There are sheltered areas, places to stand and sit. These make excellent places for birthday parties and other celebrations.

Extra: As well as Rouse Hill Estate being nearby, the bustling shopping centre Rouse Hill Town Centre.

Parking: There is a car park close to the playground however it fills fast at weekends and on public holidays.

    I took my grandkids here based on this review. Mistake. this park although huge is very rundown. the wooden equipement is very weather worn and the flying fox does not exist. the swings are only one with one missing and the soft fall area full of rather large deep holes. the picnic areas are nice but the disable toilet door does not lock giving no privacy. the worst part was i drove for 40 mins to get there. will not be returning.

      Oh no! Disaster. I will alter the post to reflect how it’s looking just now and will add your thoughts. Very, very sorry to hear this. Sounds like the council needs to get over there and sort it out.

    This park has really gone down hill, I actually complained to both Council and Parks and Wildlife in writing over 12 months ago, there a lot of hidden safety concerns here, it will only be a matter of time before someone gets really hurt, I know for a fact they have had someone out to acess the park and that’s as far as it’s gone to my knowledge, I asked for updates as we were visiting the park in a weekly basis but all I have been told is they have no money to fix it, very sad waste of a beautiful area ?
