Livvi’s Place Jordan Springs

LIVVI’S PLACE PARK | Montague Drive, Jordan Springs

Livvi’s Place at Jordan Springs is just one of the many Livvi’s Place parks that are all over Australia. Created by “Touched By Olivia”, Livvi’s Place parks are created in memory of a beautiful little girl named Olivia. The parks are inspired with the purpose of aiding children, focussing on those with disabilities.

The Jordan Springs park is just fantastic, catering for children of all ages, and those with a disability or challenges. There is a great water play area which is great in the warmer months, a see saw, a variety of swings including a disabled swing, a slide, mini trampolines, a climbing wall, sand pit and so much more. There is lots of parking right at the park, and the park is fully fenced with toilet facilities. There is shaded areas with picnic tables, and just outside the fenced area there’s a second shaded area with picnic tables, BBQ facilities, and a mini basketball court.

There are pathways all through the playground for easy wheelchair access, passive areas for children with sensory disorders who might need to have some quiet space, sensory play and great children’s artworks along the steps which looks so amazing. It really has it all! It’s nice and big too so the kids can run around like crazy, and you’re know they’re enclosed.

This is definitely a must visit park in the Nepean area, and worth the drive to visit!

Governor Phillip Park Windsor

GOVERNOR PHILLIP PARK | George St, Windsor

Governor Phillip Park is down on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, not far from the Boat Club & Ramp. The Park was completely re-done last year, and it is just fantastic!

With fully enclosed fencing, the park has great slides, tunnels, in-ground trampolines, a whirly table, swings, giant musical chimes, climing ropes, and a fantastic water play area with fountains.

They really have thought of everything with this park! There’s a giant lizard and beetles the kids can climb over, and lots of little areas they can hide and play. The park is surrounded by beautiful lush trees, green grass areas where kids can kick a ball, picnic areas, undercover BBQs with picnic tables, and of course that amazing view of the river right there. It’s simply a stunning and relaxing place to be, both for adults and for kids. There is plenty of parking right at the playground, making it so simple to park and go.

This is one of our favourite parks in the Hawkesbury, and definitely worth a visit!

McQuade Park

McQUADE PARK | 361 George St, Windsor

McQuade Park is Windsor’s oldest park, and is heritage listed. The playground area is great for the kids, and overlooks the beautiful oval. There are park bench seats for you to sit and watch the kiddies, plus an undercover gazebo area. There is a fence between the road and the park, however the fence is open at one end.

The park has a great slide, swings, naughts and crosses, and a huge climbing area with lots of obstacles. If you’d like to have a little stroll to the other side of the oval, there’s a pretty little pond where you can go for a walk and feed the ducks.

Macquarie Park

MACQUARIE PARK | Bridge St, Windsor

There are some great parks in the Windsor area, but Macquarie Park is a great one. It’s a really pretty park to start with, and right on the banks of the Hawkesbury River. It has some fantastic climbing structures, a slide, swings, and has some BBQ areas that are shaded.

Whilst it’s not fenced in completely, it’s fenced off from the driveway into the park, but you’ll still need to keep an eye on the kiddies. You can pop down and have a swim in the warmer months, as there’s a little beach area on the river which is fantastic for the kids. Right next door is the Boathouse Cafe, which has great food for lunch if you want to grab something to eat and take it over to the park. You can also sit at the cafe if you wish. There’s toilet facilities on site too, and lots of free parking.

Definitely a great park for a family outing!

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!

Ham Common Playground

HAM COMMON PLAYGOUND | Hawkesbury Valley Way, Richmond

Your kids will love this park! Fully fenced, this little park is right across the road from the RAAF Base, and has loads for the kids to play on. There’s plenty of trees with shade over and seating to sit and watch the kids, and have some lunch or snacks. One end of the playground is geared towards older kids with a climbing frame leading to a large slide, as well as a full-size swing set. The other end is geared towards the younger kids with a toddler & baby swing set, as well as a replica train & plane for the kids to play (which are just awesome!) If you’re after a cuppa or something to eat, the café is right next door along with the Information Centre, and they serve hot food like pies, cakes and coffee. You can sit down to eat, or grab takeaway and eat in the park so you can watch your kids play.

Richmond Park

RICHMOND PARK | March St, Richmond

Richmond Park has really come full circle over the years, and the play equipment is fantastic for the kids! There’s a covered gazebo area you can sit under, or you can sit on the bench seats in the sun, or under some beautiful shady trees. You look out onto Richmond Oval – it’s so pretty. Grab a coffee across the road at your choice of two cafes, and sit and relax whilst your kiddies play. My kids loved the modern version of the ‘see-saw’. There’s a train they can play in, climbing equipment, a slide and a rocker. Such a fantastic park that makes you feel relaxed.
