Here at ellaslist, we can't get enough of Sydney playgrounds and do a little happy dance every time a new playground opens. Today, however, we are doing a happy dance PLUS a hop, skip and jump because a new playground has opened and not just any playground at that - Deerbush Park, Fairfield's first all-abilities playground has opened and we cannot wait to check it out!
Deerbush Park - Fairfield's First All-abilities Playground
Deerbush Park next to Fairfield Showground is the location of Fairfield's first all-abilities playground and has been designed to allow people of all abilities to enjoy Fairfield Showground for playing, walking, cycling, sports, family picnics etc.
Deerbush Park is a jointly funded project from Fairfield City Council and the Federal and State governments and has had a generous $6.4 million thrown at it so you better believe there's some fun and fantastic equipment in store for Sydney families.
