PLAYGROUNDS BY SUBURB

playgrounds by suburb

Did you know that there are over 150 parks with playgrounds in the City of Parramatta Council area alone! And at least the same again in surrounding suburbs. That’s a LOT of free fun to be had…. if you know where to look!

Unfortunately it was difficult to find handy information about these wonderful playgrounds and so many are little known and tucked away….well until ParraParents came along! Our aim is to provide useful details and photos of all local playgrounds so they can be enjoyed by many more families.

We’re SUPER EXCITED to have now reviewed EVERY SINGLE playground in the City of Parramatta – 153 playgrounds in total, including 144 managed by Parramatta Council. All with handy info and photos to make it a whole lot easier to know what to expect and help you pick a playground to visit! All up we have reviewed 299 playgrounds, including about 30 photo reviews, which we will add to in time (as of 31st July 2021).


Find the Right Playground for Your Family

This list of playgrounds is grouped by suburb. But if you are after a playground with certain features, like a one good for toddlers with a toilet or a fire truck, then you definitely need to use our Find a Playground Tool.


Map

To help find these playgrounds, we have created a Google Map. In the map, the playgrounds have been grouped by size and the icons show if the playgrounds is fenced or not. Plus, the colours represent the age group the playground is best suited to.

List of Playgrounds by Suburb

Below is a list of playgrounds by suburb, with links to our reviews. We visit ‘new’ playgrounds quicker than we can write up reviews. So for some playgrounds we have just shared our photos and a map, until we get back to writing up the full review. Note: playgrounds listed without a link are either in the process of having a review written or on our list to be play tested.


LEGEND

Unfortunately the icons for each playground sometimes get corrupted and can show as a ?. We are in the process of re-adding them (again!).
