Strathfield Park, the oldest public park in Strathfield, is home to a huge playground with three play spaces, spanning 1.5 acres.
The park was renovated in 2017, with the resulting play spaces uniquely designed to compliment each other, taking into account the various ages and abilities of children who might enjoy the play equipment.
The main playground area features the premiere Skytower, an eye-catching structure, with four slides attached, a Konnecta rope play structure and triple Skyrider flying fox.
Nearby is the all abilities play area, which includes a carousel, mounds, slides, swings, maze and fortress area.
Next to this play area is the 4.5m Mammoth Swing (Australia’s biggest).
Linking the two play areas is a forest garden area with a Bushwood Teepee Tower, a giant wooden Lizard and the Flecto spinner.
A flat bike path leads across the park to the last playground area on the Chalmers Road side, which includes a smaller climbing structure and an excellent educational kids bike track with road signs.
The rest of the park includes barbecue equipment, sporting fields and a very old toilet amenities block in the middle of the park.
There is no cafe in the park, so be sure to bring your own picnic lunch.
