Putney Park and Playground, Sydney

Putney Park Playground and Water Park

A fantastic playground for kids of all ages, Putney Park has some really unique features.

The large climbing structure dominating the playground is best for older kids, had has a long slide that looks scarier than it actually is to ride inside.

At the bottom of the slide and climbing structure is a water park that is semi enclosed by a stone retaining wall.

The Putney water park has two shallow pools connected by a pebble stream. The upper pool is best suited for toddlers as it is the most shallow of the two pools, but it is not covered by a shade cloth. This does however mean the water is warmer in this pool.

The lower pool is a bit deeper. Neither pool is very deep – the deepest part would be around 30cm.

Around the pools are brightly coloured shapes that the kids enjoy trying to climb.
