Even if you have the space at home, sometimes it’s nice to host a party at the park. Your house maintains the status quo, the kids burn energy galore and you get to soak up some glorious vitamin D (hopefully!). Here’s a list of local parks that we think have the icing on the (birthday) cake when it comes to hosting a party AKA they have at a minimum:
- tables and
Banjo Paterson Park, Gladesville
This lovely, peaceful spot on the water has a brand new playground, BBQs and tables but you might need to consider bringing picnic blankets or a marquee to fully mark your territory.
McIlwaine Park, Rhodes
This one is a very popular picnic spot and for good reason. There’s plenty of green space to sprawl out on, lovely views and two great playgrounds to boot.
This park is a great spot for a party with loads for kids to do including a playground, basketball court, cricket ground, scoot on the track or just run around on the grass. The cafe nearby may even be able to help with catering, or at the very least, keep the parents sufficiently caffeinated!
Livvi’s Place, Yamble Reserve, Ryde
Livvi’s Place, Ryde is an AWESOME spot for a kid’s party but it seems this is a well-known fact! Tables have been known to be ‘taken’ for parties from 5am in the morning on weekends!
Lions Park, West Ryde
Plenty of tables, barbecues and parking for the adults, plus plenty of activities and space for the kiddies. Don’t let Victoria Road put you off this gem as there is a sturdy fence.
Bicentennial Park, Concord West
Bicentennial Park has so much to offer including multiple areas/pavilions to host parties. It is such a gorgeous space, a party here will be sure to impress.
Kissing Point Park, Putney
This riverside park is a popular spot for picnickers, and for good reason. There is only 1 BBQ and a few tables, but plenty of grass to claim as your own. Don’t forget to bring scooters and bikes to this awesome spot!
Memorial Park, Meadowbank
Another river-side spot with plenty of grass and a gorgeous playground. RDMs have hosted 2 Easter egg hunts at this park so it’s definitely on the fave list!
