Favourite Winter Playgrounds for Little Ones

It may be chilly outside, but with a warm jumper (and maybe a beanie and gloves), there is still a lot of fun to be had at a playground in winter. It is just a matter of choosing the right one! UPDATED: 4th July 2017

Make the most of a glorious sunny winters day and visit one of our favourite winter playgrounds for little ones that are in and around the City of Parramatta. Most are fenced or set away from the road. All have no or little shade. The playgrounds range from small ones good for a 30min play to the larger ones your kids should enjoy for fair bit longer.

So rug up and get exploring! And let us know if we have missed any of your favourites.

And for a list of winter playgrounds for older kids, see our new Top Winter Playgrounds for toddlers through to teenagers article.
