Yay! The brand new Waitara Park Playground

Waitara Park

A new playground opened at Waitara Park in March 2019 and ready for you and the kids to explore. There is something for everyone, with areas that cater to different ages and abilities. Plus, coffee is just a short walk away at the PCYC! 

This Waitara Park Playground gets the tick of approval from us in all areas! There’s not only a huge range of play equipment to all ages and abilities (which means that toddlers, preschoolers and primary school-aged siblings can all enjoy it!), it also features:

  • A fence the whole way around (excellent news if you have a runner who likes to explore!)
  • Shade sails
  • Picnic shelters, seating & BBQs
  • Nearby accessible toilets
  • Nearby paths for scooting and riding bikes
  • Nearby coffee
  • Nearby parking (street or underground)

Plus, there’s also lots of room to run around on the oval too (providing there are no sporting matches happening, of course!). Thank you, Hornsby Council!

The roundabout is lots of fun (and no dangerous edges!)

The Play Equipment at Waitara Playground

We went and visited the playground just before it opened to grab some great shots with no one else around. This is likely the only time you will see this popular playground this empty (as it’s super popular!), so enjoy browsing through the photos below.


There’s lots of fun equipment for children of all ages, such as:

  • Amazon Tower with huge slide
  • Inclusive Multi-Play Unit
  • Inclusive swings
  • Inclusive roundabout
  • Inclusive spinner
  • Musical flowers
  • Cubby house
  • Hip-hop spinner
  • Toddler slide
  • Inclusive Car play Piece
  • Inclusive Carousel
  • Twister
  • Junior & toddler Swings
  • Trampolines

PCYC Waitara

PCYC toddler play area

If it starts to rain or you’re in need of a decent coffee or snack, the PCYC is just a few minutes walk around to the other side of Mark Taylor Oval. You can dine at the cafe, or take it away back to the playground. There’s also a lovely little indoor play area for toddlers and preschoolers, too.
