Charity Creek Cascade Playground, West Ryde

posted in: Life, Parks & Playgrounds | 0


You’ve probably never heard of Charity Creek Cascade Playground, we certainly hadn’t and neither had google maps (don’t worry we got it added)! But this playground is definitely a hidden Gem. Charity Creek Cascade Playground forms part of the Charity Creek Cascades, a series of interconnected parks that run from Top Ryde to West Ryde station. You can access the park via Shepherd St (best options as this is a less busy road for cars) or Bowden Street. 

What you will find here is pretty great, and it ticks so many of our park ‘must-haves’! Here are the things we love about it:

  • It has 2 large shade sails over the playground
  • It has soft fall ground (hooray, no bark!)
  • It’s fenced
  • It has a foot path (for scooters, bikes and prams) both into and out of the park
  • There is plenty of grass to kick a ball around 

This park opened in the second half of 2015 so is still quite new looking. It features

  • a big ring swing that can fit about 3 or so kids
  • a circular rope climbing frame
  • a stading spinner
  • a good sized swing
  • stairs
  • a climbing structure

This playground is a great one to bring very little children to as it has lots of open space (both soft fall ground and grass) for babies to crawl around on or for enjoying a picnic.
