The Village Kitchen

83 Old Bells Line of Road, Kurrajong

The pretty village of Kurrajong is well worth a visit, and has some great quaint boutique shops which are lovely to stroll through on a winter’s morning. We took a visit for a morning coffee to The Village Kitchen. The staff were very welcoming, and the cafe has a large open feel, with stunning views from their balcony. You can sit inside or outside, and they have a lovely warm fireplace too.

The coffee was nice, and we went for breakfast and found the meals to be large for the price, very tasty and good value.

This is definitely a cafe you should stop by!

Jamison Park

JAMISON PARK | Batt St, South Penrith

This bright and fun playground will keep kids entertained for a long time. Suitable for kids of all ages, this playground is not overly old and it has a nice soft ground, lots of slides, swings, twirly gigs, a climbing frame, mini rock climbing wall and a scooter path. What’s fantastic and great for kids imagination is the crocodile, lizard and spider lurking on the ground for them to play on! We especially love that there’s a small play area for the littlies, so the older kids aren’t climbing over the top of the toddlers.

Older kids may like to kick a ball around on the oval next door or take their bikes or skateboards to the skate park that is also part of the park. It’s perfect for all ages and that’s a big tick from us!

There’s a great little area with gym equipent next to the scooter path, if you’re wanting to a mini workout whilst the kids play, plus there’s lots of shade sails over all the play areas. There’s a few bench seats for parents to sit on to watch the kids, and the toilets are right on site(and are quite clean).

Directly across the road there’s a take away shop, and if you are looking for a caffeine fix or something sweet, head diagonally across York Road to Café Lattetude (3 min walk). This park is also set to have a multi-million dollar upgrade over the next few years, including upgrading the sports facilities and adding an all-weather synthetic surface – something the area really needs, and will be an amazing addition to the park! We think this is one of the best playgrounds in the Penrith area!

Parks & Coffee – The Perfect Combo for Mums

Cafe’s next to play areas – within walking distance
We all love to keep the kids busy by taking them to a local park. But wouldn’t it be great to grab a quick cuppa to take with you to the park, and not have to stop multiple times, getting the kids in and out of the car? Read more…
