Jubilee Park Adventure Playground, Mortdale, Sydney
The Jubilee Park Adventure Playground in Mortdale, Sydney, features a large climbing frame with nets and slides, a children’s bike track, junior swings, flying foxes and multi-purpose sports courts.
The excellent new multi-million dollar Jubilee Park Adventure Playground is a great addition to the community. Built behind the existing Mortdale Community Centre, the playground has revitalised the park and given the community a great spot to picnic, play and get fit.
As part of the upgrade, Jubilee Park was also given a new picnic and BBQ areas, outdoor gym equipment and new seating areas.
The centrepiece of the park is the adventure playground. It’s a huge structure that suits older kids best, where they can climb up a huge spiderweb or enclose rope ladder to reach the top, and traverse suspended rope bridges. There is a large tunnel slide to get to the bottom.
Also new to the park are a flying fox, basket swing, children’s bike track, junior swings, flying foxes and multi-purpose sports courts.
While older kids will love the new climbing structure, littlies can enjoy the junior play area, with rubber hills featuring handholds, swings and a smaller basket swing.
The bike track is really fun for young riders, with a series of paths posted with street signs, road markings and crossings. The track continues throughout the park and through the landscaped play area, where kids will love the “wombat crossing”.
A landscaped play area is lovely for nature play, with wooden logs and rocks for climbing on, and concrete animals such as the wombats.
At the bottom of the park is the fitness area. A variety of multi-purpose courts are perfect for netball, basketball and soccer with goals for all sports available. There is also fitness equipment including balance beams, parallel bars and sit up boards. On the day we visited the courts were being used for skating practice, which is a great idea for kids just learning to rollerskate or ride a bike.
There are public toilets in the park which are clean and maintained well. There is an accessible toilet that has a baby change table in it.
There is no cafe in the park, but we love Bitton, which is only a few blocks away.
We parked in the free car park at the community centre.
If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking out Oatley Park and the Oatley Park Adventure Playground as well.
