Marrickville’s Steel Park is a lovely park in its own right, with plenty of space, lots of grass and poplar trees providing great shade and a great view of the Cooks River. There are BBQs and a sheltered picnic areas and it is next to the Debbie and Abbey Borgia Centre, a state-of-the-art complex comprising three multi-purpose indoor sports courts, eight community meeting and activity rooms and the seriously child friendly Steel Park Café.
But on a hot summer day, it’s the new Waterplay Park that is the main drawcard. It has interactive fountains, sprinklers and misty spray elements. It has been designed to represent natural water features and also demonstrates an environmental process in action, using all aspects of the water cycle. It’s safe, creative and fun for all ages. When it’s time to dry off, there is also a great playground with equipment to suit both the littlies and older children.
This is definitely one of our favourites-so well thought out, cleverly designed and above all, heaps of fun-even the mums have a hard time resisting a splash or 2!
