Hardy Park is on the busy Buffalo Road, but thankfully is fenced. The small park has a nice local fenced playground. And something a little special for any budding palaeontologists!
The play equipment at Hardy Park includes:
- Two swings
- climbing wall
- rope spider web
- double slide
- bucket and pulley chain
There is also a sandpit with dinosaur bones for the kids to dig around. Definitely a park to visit for those who are interested in archaeology!
Hardy Park seems to be quite empty every time I drive past, but is worth a visit for dinosaur loving kids. Unfortunately, there aren’t any cafes nearby nor are there any BBQ facilities. Just a nice, small, local park that is suitable for kids aged 1-5.

Finding Hardy Park
Hardy Park is located at 106 Buffalo Road, Ryde. Parking can be a bit tricky depending when you visit. But we usually park in Bright Street and walk around.
If you plan on getting here via public transport, you can do so by catching the M52, 518, 515, 500 or 501 bus. Get off at the Beazley Street stop on Victoria Road (across the road from St Charles Church). Walk down toward Malouf Partners and go down the stairs to Providence Road. Walk all the way down to Buffalo Road and turn right. You’ll find the park. Getting there is easy but leaving is trickier as you have to walk uphill. *groan*
