NEW Playground NOW OPEN: Riverglade Reserve, Gladesville

posted in: Parks & Playgrounds | 0

We all know RDM’s love a NEW playground – being fully fenced and inclusive, this one is sure to please!

Newly opened in November 2021, Riverglade Reserve playground in Gladesville is an inclusive “Livvi’s Place” playspace that is the result of a spend of $200K from the NSW Government and $200K from Hunters Hill Council. It is the first inclusive playground within Hunters Hill Council.

Touched by Olivia, the wonderful charity behind the national network of Livvi’s Place inclusive playgrounds was involved in bringing this nature themed playground to life, and students from Villa Maria and Boronia Park Public School were involved in the design of the playground.

You’ll find:

  • Multiple slides and climbing structures
  • Various swings
  • Path throughout the playground
  • Full fence
  • Water and sand play area
  • Merry-go-round
  • Climbing ropes
  • Double flying fox
  • Balance beams
  • Talking cones
  • Tunnels for climbing and hiding


Further along the Riverglade walking path is an off-leash dog park and a huge field with picturesque water views. It’s definitely a great place to bring scooters and bikes with a walking loop that is approximately 1.5kms.

Finally, if you’re there during the right season, you might notice the thousands of bats that roost in the Riverglade trees. It’s a very interesting sight indeed! Although we’ve come to understand locals arent thrilled with the night noises or bat poo on their cars!
