Rhodes Foreshore Park recently underwent an upgrade and has come out the other side very sparkly indeed. It ticks many of the boxes that are important to RDMs so we think you’re going to love it.
Set on the Parramatta River looking over to Wentworth point, this medium-sized playground has a lot to love about it:
- it’s new (always a nice bonus)
- it’s fenced
- the ground is astroturf (no bark in sight!)
- it’s shaded although truthfully could do with another shade cloth
- there are a few options for coffee and lunch close by including Bare Witness and Left of Field
- confident kiddies will enjoy scootering along the river
In terms of equipment, there is:
- a wide slide for up to 3 children sitting side-by-side
- 3 swings including a baby swing and bucket swing
- a vortex (spinning disc)
- a 6 seater seesaw
- balancing beams
As for facilities, there are toilets nearby (a baby change too) at The Connection, which is a short walk away. The playground has a number of bench seats and one picnic table and there is also a filtered water refill station.
A little further along, near the toilets, you’ll find a small water play area with jets shooting water streams into the air. The kids will not be able to resist! On the other side of the playground is a long stretch of grass perfect for picnics but maybe not soccer because balls could easily be kicked into the river.
Rhodes Foreshore Park is situated on Shoreline Drive near The Connection. Parking is along Shoreline Drive.
