Visit our Playgrounds

Centennial Park features three popular playgrounds, all ideally located close to parking and/or public transport. All playgrounds are available during Centennial Park's opening hours - that are sunrise to sunset all year round.

Restaurant Playground

This playground - one of the most popular in the Parklands - is located adjacent to the Centennial Parklands Restaurant.

The playground provides an engaging and experiential experience for kids 0 – 5 year olds, incorporating interactive sound features, with modern play equipment, giant guiros, a water feature, ‘hug-me’ poles and turtle sculptures. The design incorporates timbers and heritage stone gathered from within the Parklands and picnic tables and areas.

Ideally located near to takeaway coffee and food facilities, there's no wonder why this playground is very well patronaged!

Paddington Gates Playground

This playground is located adjacent to Paddington Gates in Centennial Park (see map).

Originally known as "the Rocket Park" (as it featured a bright red rocket in its centre), while the rocket has gone the playground remains a popular attraction for many young kids and is designed for children aged between 1-12 years.

The double see-saw and two play spaces have been created to cater to the varying needs of children, with climbing, swinging, spinning, balancing and sliding equipment, as well as a quiet play area.

The playground also features an accessible swing is also available that can be used by children with special needs, such as wheelchairs.

There is a shaded area with a barbecue installed close by. An accessible toilet is also located near the playground car park.
