Hosting a birthday Party in the park can be a great idea.

While no birthday party is without a bit of work, hosting in a park can feel easier as there is no one messing up your home and there is already space and play equipment.

Finding a park that suits hosting a party is probably the hardest part, so I thought I could help by listing my favourites for group gatherings.

I have based my preferences on parks that have:

-seating (halls and covered areas where possible),


-good play equipment,

-space to run,

-fencing (not all of my favourites here are fenced, but many are).

Divided geographically, and links to the pages on my website that contain more information, photos and a map of how to get there.


Glenbrook Park:

(stay tuned for upgrades to this park that should be finished soon)

Lennox Park, Blaxland:

Buttenshaw Park, Springwood:

(As I look at these pictures, I realise I have not updated them to include the fabulous round-about and new swing set, apologies for this)

Summerhayes Park, Winmalee:


Woodford Park:

Gloria Park:

(As I look at these photos, I realise I haven’t added pictures of the new swing set, which is a lot better than the previous one)


Wentworth Falls Lake:

(Parts of this playground are currently being modified, stay tuned for upgrades to this park)

Wilson Park, Wentworth Falls:

Hinkler Park Katoomba

Melrose Playground & Skate Park Katoomba

I do hope that this is helpful.

May it be a big gathering of family and friends or a few friends for cake after school, I am sure one of the above options will create a great space celebrate your child and give them beautiful birthday memories!
