Putney Park, Putney, NSW

Pellisier Road, Putney  NSW  2112

Activities and play areas
Overlooking Kissing Point Bay on the Parramatta River, this park is a great find! The play equipment, water play and grassed areas offer something for all ages, but are set apart a little. 

From the car park you enter via the large fort/tower/bridge/slide structure which the kids will love climbing up, running across and sliding down. 

The fantastic water play is divided into a number of sections joined by a rocky "stream" which can be a bit slippery. Rocks, spheres, cubes and small pyramids add another element of interest and are fun to play around. Down the stairs to the large, open grassed area is a rope pyramid with sand play underneath, and small toddler play frame.
