Does anyone know of a community/sport centre or hall that also has an enclosed/gated play area? Preferably in the eastern suburbs or Hills area. But, other areas in Sydney are ok too.

I'm trying to plan a first birthday and it's extremely difficult to find a suitable venue online.

Maybe check out what Bernie Mullane offers in terms of indoor areas? I know there is a huge conplex there behind the fenced playground but have never been inside. They're in Kellyville.

Thank you KoalaTeeTime.

From memory, Bernie Mullane is really big inside.  Probably a little to big for what we're after.

Not too far from the Hills, there is Hawkins Hall in Thornleigh and Hornsby Heights Community Centre (I think that's what it's called) on Galston Rd. Both can be booked through the Hornsby Council website.

Not your area at all but the Freshwater Literary Institute Hall is brilliant. It is the community pre-school during the week and is available for hire on weekends and evenings. Beautiful playground and very child-friendly facilities. It is next to a large free carpark.

Try looking at the playgroups website.
I had a child's birthday party at our local playgroup once (QLD) and it was brilliant.

Not your area  - but Fairland Hall, Hunters Hill, is available for hire through the Hunters Hill Council. I had a 3 yr olds birthday party there a few years ago. It was far cheaper than anything else around and it has chairs, tables, toilets, a small kitchen and an enclosed outdoor area.

I was fortunate enough to be there looking at it one day while the local playgroup was running and the head of the group let us hire the playgroup equipment (toys that were perfect for 1- 4 yr olds) for a  nominal donation. It was brilliant.

Might be a bit far but the Gymea United football club has a good venue with an enclosed play area (proper childproof gates and everything).   They often have christenings and playgroups there.
