We discovered this playground a few years ago, following its upgrade in 2016. And after a bit of a gap in visiting, we’ve recently been going almost weekly thanks to Mini Park Rangers being there in term 3.
We now prefer Concord West playground at Bicentennial Park over it’s sister playground at the Village Green (near WaterView Cafe). It’s definitely less crowded and has a number of nature based play elements for the kids to enjoy.
My kids also love riding around the bike/ scooter track, the toilets are right nearby and the play equipment is newer, plus it is also mostly shaded.
Like the Village Green playground, there’s a mixture of equipment catering for different ages and a dry creek-bed, but no sandpit.
At the Concord West playground you’ll find:
- four swings, including two baby/ toddler swings next to each other
- two climbing play gyms
- a section for teenagers, called teen rager, with things like a snow rider
- monkey bars
- a grid hopper game
There are a number of sheltered picnic tables near the playground, plus park benches and plenty of grass to put out a picnic rug. Toilets can be found towards the carpark, only a few minutes walk away.
There are a number of paths leading off from the playground that let you explore the creek and bushland in the park – either on foot or bike/ scooter.
And just a short walk away is the Treillage Tower that’s fun to explore.
Finding Concord West Playground
Concord West Playground can be a bit tricky to find by car. It’s at the end of Victoria Ave, past Victoria Ave Primary School, and you go through a tunnel that takes you under Homebush Bay Drive.
