Bicentennial Park Playgrounds
Australia Avenue, Sydney Olympic Park NSW 2127
Website: www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au Venues and Parks
There are many playgrounds in and around Bicentennial Park, here we are focussing on one at the Village Green beside the Visitor Centre and one at the Concord West picnic area. (See website link below for info about all the playgrounds in Sydney Olympic Park.)
The Village Green playground has lots of shade and equipment for teenagers as well as younger children. There is a junior play structure with a viewing bubble, shop cubby, bead panel, a bridge, slides and tunnels and two small swings.
The senior play structure has curved monkey bars, a wobble walk, twist climber, flying fox and slides, plus two swings.
A dry creek runs through the playground and is crossed by a small bridge. The playground is landscaped with shrubs and rocks, but there are a few benches for parents and carers.
The Concord West picnic area playground is more spread out and has no shadecloth. There are junior and senior areas with similar equipment to that in the Village Green.
The playground is beautifully landscaped with plants, sandstone boulders and little walks through the trees. There is a small children’s bike track with road markings.There are large shaded barbecue pavilions with picnic tables beside both playgrounds.
Nearest takeaway coffee: Lilies In The Park kiosk/cafe is right beside the Visitor Centre
Toilets: Toilets and baby change beside the Visitor Centre, and toilets at the Concord West picnic area
Shade: Shadecloth over the Village Green playground
Mum’s report: Both playgrounds have great equipment and facilities. We prefer the one at the Village Green as there is no traffic noise from Homebush Bay Drive. The pond is close too and the kids like to visit the ducks.
Extra: Stroller walk in Bicentennial Park (see page 244 of Sydney For Under Fivers).
Lots of school holiday activities, see www.kidsinthepark.com.au.
The Visitor Centre has displays on the natural history of the park and a shop. Lots of paths beside the playgrounds for bike riding.
