posted in: Activities, Life | 0

Whether it be a park, a cafe or a play centre, there’s one thing that’s absolutely crucial – SPACE! Here’s where RDMs think are the best places in the area to have mothers group catch up.


7. The Dining & Co, North Ryde

Park out the front, stroll on in and take a seat at the huge centre table. With loads of space for prams and even some kids toys, it’s no wonder The Dining & Co is topping lots of RDM lists lately.

6. North Ryde RSL

This option is great for mums with older kids because – two words – Tribal Zone. If you don’t know about Tribal Zone you’re missing OUT! Pay $6 and your 3+ year old can play for 2 hours completely SUPERVISED in a massive purpose built adventure playground with ballroom. Mums get a buzzer and will be buzzed should the need arise. They’re open until 9.30pm most night so you could even have a mothers group dinner there!


5. Monkey Mania, Top Ryde

Monkey Mania is suitable for crawlers all the way up to teenagers with a gated area for the little ones and a myriad of space and activities for older kids. For somewhere between $10-$15 per child, your kids can burn off all their energy while your mothers’ group drink all the coffee.

4. Livvi’s Place, Yamble Reserve

favourite playground amongst RDMs, this one is PERFECT for mothers group because there’s loads for the kids to enjoy and plenty of grassy knolls and tables for enjoying a picnic too.

3. Pages Cafe, West Ryde

Part of the Koorong bookstore, near West Ryde station, Pages Cafe is a homely and simple cafe with a big heart. It has as undercover gated playground located outside and all the facilities a mum could ever need.

2. Top Ryde Shopping Centre play area

Free, fun and lots to keep the kids busy including four indoor play areas and another two outside in the Piazza. Afterwards, you can do the grocery shopping, pick up that thing you need or just get another coffee!



1. Ryde Park

Of course, Ryde Park won the vote! With gorgeous surrounds, a playground, scooter track, great cafe and plenty of places to sit, it really is the ideal place for a mothers group catch up.
