Camden’s First Water Play Park Opens In Time For Summer
Hip hip hooray, the highly anticipated new $2.4 million water playground at Curry Reserve, Elderslie has officially opened and Camden residents could not be happier. The Macarthur region has been crying out for a water play park for years (the closest is Raging Waters at Prospect) and to receive a swish new one that you can visit for free was like Christmas had come early!
Wonderful Water Play
The water play space gives options for children of all abilities and families to exercise and socialise and features wheelchair accessible play equipment. Change facilities including an adult change hoist, waterproof wheelchairs and storage opened in Autumn 2019.
Water will be heated at the site to extend the season from just the summer school holiday period to include spring and autumn holidays. This is a first for Sydney!
The playground features three play zones for all ages including a toddler zone, 36 play features including a toddler’s ‘discovery stream,’ a capacity for 176 users, shade sails covering two thirds of water play area and zero depth water.
More Play Spaces For All
Nearby you also have the new youth play spaces at Sedgewick Reserve, Currans Hill and Harrington Park Lake Reserve. Sedgewick Reserve park includes a sensory path with musical instruments as well as climbing apparatus, swings and areas for skating, scooters and bicycles. Harrington Park Lake Reserve has slides and climbing structures, trampolines, skate elements and a multi-use path for skaters, scooters and bicycles.
The reserve is situated next to the Camden Visitor’s Centre and is open from 10am-7pm, September to April.
