Bicentennial Park - Jubilee Park, Annandale - Glebe, NSW

Chapman Road, Annandale  NSW  2038

Activities and play areas
We had a great morning at this hidden gem - our entry into the playground slightly delayed as we happened to park the car next to an ice-cream truck! This expansive area is actually two adjoining parks enabling play in the enclosed playground or enjoying the grassy surrounds.

Playground ground cover: bark chips and sand in the playground, paths and grass in the parks.
Paths: there are small paths within the enclosed playground as well as cycling paths throughout both parks. 
Sand and water play (non swim): There is a sandpit within the playground which also includes two diggers. Located on Rozelle Bay with a canal separating the two parks, there is no fencing along the foreshore. Wide stairs lead to the water where dogs are allowed.
Swimming: Not suitable for swimming, dog owners tend to dip their feet into the water.
Large open grassed area: Yes, large open grassed areas in both parks with paths crossing the canal.
