While Waitara Park is 20kms north-east of Parramatta, it will make for a lovely day trip. And it’s a short 400m walk from Waitara train station (or 1km walk from Hornsby train station). Plus you can combine it with a visit to Westfield Hornsby or the Aquatic Centre…or if you need to visit family and friends in Hornsby Hospital.

The fenced playground has a range of play equipment for toddlers through to primary school kids, for kids of different abilities. And there are shade sails over parts of the playground.

And near the new playground at Waitara Park are BBQs, picnic shelters, toilets and landscaped gardens. Plus tennis courts.

We will update our review once we have been able to play test it, when it opens mid-April. The official opening celebration is on Saturday 13th April from 10:30am to 12:30pm. There’ll be free popcorn, jumping castle and roving entertainers.

    • Hi Helen, Waitara Park has a large playground with a few different areas. It’s good for kids from 0-10yrs in the playground but there are other things to do at the park for older kids.
