There is a new nature inspired playground being built at ELS Hall Park in North Ryde. It’s scheduled to open later this month and looked almost finished when we visited recently. We will update this review once it opens and we have play tested it.
The new playground overlooks the new synthetic sports fields, up the hill from the old playground which is still there.
Once open, the playground will have:
- water play with water pump and channels
- big slides
- flying fox
- shaded toddler play area
- large ‘egg’ pods
- nature play elements
There are paths through the new playground and around the park that are good for riding on. Plus exercise equipment and of course, YMCA Ryde.
Behind the playground, near the end of Adelphi Road, is a carpark and fenced dog off-leash area.
Finding ELS Hall Park
The main entrance to ELS Hall Park is on Kent Road. Entering here takes you to the carpark in front of YMCA Ryde and next to the old playground with BBQs. There is also a carpark at the end of Adelphi Road in Marsfield.
