There is so much for families to see and do at Como Pleasure Grounds. Here's what to keep in mind when visiting this Sutherland Shire gem.
Como Pleasure Grounds
The Como Pleasure Grounds pirate-themed playground has something for every age and stage. There's a large rope climbing structure surrounded by lots of sand which kids of all ages can play in. There is also a small spinning wheel, as well as a pirate ship play structure that has an area to play underneath for smaller kids. The playground also features a swing set with both a normal swing seat and a baby seat. The swing set is low to the ground so the younger kids can play and swing safely. Basically, everyone's a winner!
There are two cafes at Como Pleasure Grounds, perfect for grabbing a bite to eat whilst you enjoy everything the grounds have to offer. Blackfish Cafe is situated in the heart of Como Pleasure Grounds, with panoramic views of the Georges River and surrounding bushland. Offering breakfast and lunch 7-days a week, Blackfish Cafe offers delicious food in a gorgeous, tranquil setting.
Meanwhile, situated right on the water's edge, the Como Waterfront Cafe makes for a great spot to enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat while observing the local wildlife and is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch.
Thai Rim Nam (Water's Edge) Restaurant at Como is another great pick for a meal, open six days per week for lunch and dinner. There's a beautiful outdoor area, mouthwatering authentic Thai food on offer, and a gorgeous spot nestled amongst the trees in historic Como. What more could you want?
Como Swimming Complex
Como Swimming Complex is open from October - March and is a free aquatic facility that comes with a picturesque view of Georges River.
Como Tidal Baths
The tidal baths are located on the river below the Como Swimming Complex and are worth well worth a visit to splash about in over the summer.
Como Bridge Walk
A walk across Como Bridge should be added to your adventure list—the bridge leads you on a scenic journey to Oatley, a picturesque suburb that treats you to stunning river vistas and lush surroundings.
Fun fact: Como Bridge holds the title of being the longest single-track lattice girder bridge in all of NSW, and it offers a walk that families with young explorers can enjoy too.
Como Bike Tracks
Situated next to the playground is a loop track for children to ride bikes and scooters to blow off some steam. The track is a great length and is sure to make everyone hungry enough to hit one of the cafes.
Como Pleasure Grounds are open 7 days per week.
Como Pleasure Grounds are free to enter.
