The fenced playground at Doyle Ground is one of only a handful of fenced playgrounds. And part of a smaller select group that also has shade sails! It’s also one of a few playgrounds nearby to Parramatta CBD.
All this means it is popular with families with young kids, particularly when you factor in that the playground at Doyle Ground is a short walk from The Container Cafe.
City of Parramatta is planning to upgrade this much loved playground at Doyle Ground. While it needs an upgrade, it is unclear to us why Council is doing this before the release of the Heart of Play Masterplan for the parks in the North Parramatta area. You can see the proposed designs and provide feedback here.
The play equipment is best suited for kids 3-7yrs and includes:
- monkey bars
- large climbing play gym with spiral slide, noughts and crosses, tunnel and pretend shop
- stepping stones
- dry creek bed with bridge
There’s also picnic tables and park benches for parents inside the fenced area, plus a little path for the kids to ride on.
The whole area inside the fence isn’t shaded which means it’s nice for a visit on hot and cool days.
Outside the fenced playground are more swings, including a birds nest swing, and exercise equipment, plus a pathway around the oval great for walking or riding on.
If you are after coffee or a bite to eat, then The Container is only a few minutes walk up Buller Street.
