The rise of clubs and hotels with play areas is a fantastic thing for families. The fact that kids can happily play while mum and dad enjoy their dinner and a drink in peace = WINNING!

Clubs and hotels with play areas
Castle Hill RSL

Here is a list of 37 Clubs and Hotels in and around the City of Parramatta that have a kids play area. All are FREE to use except one, which has a small charge but they supervise your kids! The list is divided into clubs/ hotels with INDOOR or OUTDOOR play areas and is presented in alphabetical order.

For each club/ hotel, we have listed the times you can access the play areas, which are usually when the bistro/ restaurant is open. In time, we will provide more information and photos of each one. For other options across Sydney, check out Little Munch’s list or this top 10 list from Little Eats.

And at the bottom, is a calendar listing of some of the kids activities taking place at the clubs/ hotels.
