Lions Park, West Ryde

posted in: Life, Parks & Playgrounds | 0

Lions Park is easy to miss as you drive down Victoria Road because it is hidden behind rows of trees. Once inside, kids will be entertained for hours with a great variety of equipment and activities. It’s well laid out, spacious and flat and there’s a big grassy area for the kids to burn off energy. The scooter track will be sure to impress too! The noise of road isn’t as bad as you might think and from the park, you can hardly see the road. 

 

There’s loads of play equipment including:

  • a sandpit with equipment for moving sand
  • a climbing pyramid
  • a slide for toddlers
  • plenty of swings (seven to be exact!)
  • a scooter/bike track
  • a half basketball court 

 

Also, and very importantly, there are:

  • toilets
  • tables and lots of seating
  • BBQ’s (2)
  • easy pram access

This means it would be a great place to host a party. Don’t be turned off by its location, it’s actually quite a nice setting once inside! We were was pleasantly surprised by this park and would definitely recommend it. Check out our rating below.
