Sydney's Inner West
This grand old dame has wonderful facilities for kids!
Ashfield Park is an expansive park with amazing facilities. Located between the main street of Ashfield and Parramatta Road there is a sporting field, traditional gardens and a recently refurbished playground.
The playground is covered and fenced and contains all the usual play equipment and also some interesting stuff you don't see everywhere. There is something for the little ones but the bigger kids will be happy here too. Alongside the swings, cubby house and small climbing equipment, there's a double slippery slide set into a mound that doubles as a little rock wall. No precarious ladders to climb here! There's some interesting wooden ride on or climb on animals as well as a couple of spring riders. There's also a big net swing that is lots of fun! The older ones will be happy with the huge rope climbing structure that will provide a challenge.
Inside the playground fence are some great paths perfect for scootering too. With ample seating and heaps of gorgeous trees and landscaping this park makes for a very pleasant afternoon out.
Outside the playground are the sporting oval, some traditional rose gardens and the war memorial statue. There's also another set of swings, covered eating area (perfect for a kids party), BBQ and toilet block in great condition and with a baby change table!
We love this park! We haven't visited recently and what a pleasant surprise! The playground is one of the best around, the toilet facilities are great and located right near the playground. There's plenty for kids of all ages to do and heaps of space to kick a ball or ride a bike.
Best access for the playground, BBQ, eating area and toilets is by parking on Ormond Street.
