Lots of equipment to play around and a quiet bike path along the water.

Western sydney regional park, off cowpasture road is fantastic!  A dedicated playground about 3-4 acres at a very rough guess, all with sand to fall into.  Theere's 2 "flying foxes" of sorts, 3 lever digger machines, 1-2 water feature pumps that are interactive, tyre swings, logs and posts of varying heights and widths to walk along, swings a see saw and numerous other things!

Just thought I'd post this in here:

Francis Park in Blacktown, it's just been revamped, it's in the showground precinct.

They now have a water area (sprinklers, etc), flying fox, cafe, etc.

It's pretty awesome for something so close to home for me style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

Both of these parks are fabulous. Lots to do for both little and big kids. My 11yoDS and 6yo DD love them both. Link to the Franic Park one (aka Blacktown Showground Precint): http://www.blacktown...ct_Francis_Park

Sydney Park in St Peters is great. huge park (the whole thing is an off leash dog park so there are dogs but it's never been a problem - we are dog people though) with duck ponds, a bike learning area with proper little roads/crossings/footpaths/traffic lights and signs (great for teaching cycle skills and road safety), big playground with cool slides, sandpit etcetc. A couple of big grassy hills perfect for sliding down with cardboard/plastic (particularly the one adjacent the bike track) and a kiosk/cafe.

Sydney Prk is great, but always take a change of clothes - there are water sprays into the sandpits, so kids in the sandpits ALWAYS end up wet and sandy.

I haven't seen Blaxland Reserve on the list - it's off Holker Rod Silverwater, behind Silverwater prison. It's downside at this stage is little shade, but with a great waterplay area, slides, giant swings, climbing net, crawl tunnels and a 6 storey treehouse it's pretty fine! There is a kiosk and you can walk down the hill to Newington Wharf cafe.

Livvi's Place - Yamble Reserve, Ryde is great too.  Themed play areas that also cater to children with physical or intellectual disabilities.  It was built by the NFP 'Touched by Olivia' foundation.

There's a new park off Coreen Ave in Penrith, fully fenced, shade cloths and a little water play area. It's in the new Thornton Estate near the train station, entry is via the new roundabout opposite Petbarn. It's only small, but really suitable for the little kids.

Also, Nurragingy Reserve at Doonside have redone one of their play areas to now include a water play area. We haven't been there yet but hope to go next week when school is back as our kids are only little. There's a few more details here.

Yes, great fenced in park with large Sandpit, flying foxes including a strap in one for the little ones plus grassed area and BBQ's. The reserve outside Livvi's place is nice too.

Queens park is brilliant! (Eastern suburbs) There is a fenced in playground with different sections for different age groups. There is a cafe right next to it.  Also if you like exercising there is a mums and bubs group that has a nanny too... we train and then go to the cafe and put it all back on again  hahaha let me know if you wanna try it out : )

The park at Mona Vale called Winnererremy Park - we just call it the Flying Fox park as the coffee shop there is called this.  It's an awesome space and it's also right on the water so it's so pretty - great in summer as the kids have the best of both worlds as when they get hot from running around doing all the fabulous activties they can strip off and go for a dip.  Love that it is also a dog friendly park as well so we all get our puppy dog fix too.  There are also BBQ's there too so a great place for kid's parties or get togethers with family and friends.
