The brand new Casula Parklands has something for everyone, from toddlers to adults. Located near the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, the park features play equipment and fitness training for all ages.
The $4 million park opened in May 2019 on the site of an old golf course. Spread across 15 acres, the new park includes:
Ninja training circuit for adults and teenagers
Eight-metre-high Sky Walk and tunnel slide for older kids and teens
Swings including a nest swing
Dual flying foxes
A fitness training area for adults that is located some distance from the main facilities
Separate off-leash parks for big dogs and small dogs
Flat paths for scooting or bike riding
Shaded picnic shelters
Large, clean bathrooms
There is parking right near the main playground equipment, however it is minimal. There is more parking available at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre further down the road, however it is a long walk back particularly for small kids.
How to get there
Finding the park can seem tricky. Enter Powerhouse Road via Shepherd Street and keep driving – the park is on your left hand side.
If travelling by public transport, take the train to Casula station, then walk 10 minutes to the adventure playground
Casula Parklands adventure playground has men’s, women’s and disabled toilets. Covered picnic shelters are available along with water bubblers.
Food and Drink
The nearest cafe is Bellbird Dining and Bar at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. Advertised as a 10 min walk, it would be longer with kids.
