You KNOW we love a new playground opening and this one is a good’n. Not only is the playground itself great fun but it’s located right next to St Ives Shopping Village. It’s also next to a really cool skatepark which reopened early 2022 after a big upgrade, so in case you weren’t aware, St Ives Village Green has a whole lot going for it right now!
St Ives Village Green is one of Ku-ring-gai’s largest sports facilities and is fully equipped with four baseball diamonds, four floodlit tennis courts (dual-marked for netball), the aforementioned skate park and fantastic playground. This venue hosts a number of community events throughout the year, including Festival on the Green and Food & Wine Festival.
In terms of proximity to St Ives Shopping Village, it’s RIGHT next to it – only a few steps away. We love this because it means you don’t have to jump back in car to get lunch, go grocery shopping, grab a coffee or whatever else you might need to do.
The playground is a great size and had plenty of equipment for children aged 2-10 years including:
- Climbing tower
- Slides of varying sizes
- Toddler area with ropes and nets and more slides
- Swings (lots of them!)
- Monkey bars
- Nature play
As for the things the adults want to know about – it has:
- sunshades around the park and seated areas
- lots of seating
- secure fencing the whole way around
- free parking for up to 3 hours!
