Blaxland Riverside Park

Blaxland Riverside Park
We recently visited Blaxland Riverside Park, Sydney's largest playground inside Sydney Olympic Park and we absolutely loved it.

If you are looking for a great family day out then I can highly recommend visiting.  The park is inside the grounds of Sydney Olympic Park and caters for the whole family.  Both parents and kids are able to get active and have fun in the larger-than-life park, hire a bike and ride along the bike track enjoying the riverside views, then cool off in the water fun park.  You can pack a picnic, make use of the free BBQ's, get refreshments at the kiosk or enjoy a meal at the nearby Armory Wharf Cafe.

Make the trip educational by popping into the Newington Armory next door, and if you're there on the weekend, take a ride on the Heritage Train.  It's a fantastic day out for the whole family!

After we were all thoroughly worn out from our fun at the park, we chose to eat at the Cafe and then went exploring the old Newington Armory.  The kids loved the old buildings and old artifacts.

It really is a fabulous family day out if the weather is nice and you are looking for something the whole family can enjoy.
