Inglis Park, Newmarket
A historic former stable yard in Randwick has become a cool urban hub breathing new life into the neighbourhood. Newmarket Randwick is all about celebrating diversity, bringing together the distinct stable architecture of the heritage-listed precinct, with a range of play areas, outdoor spaces and community facilities.
With a focus on bringing people together, a large part of the new development is dedicated to open, green spaces that families can enjoy. The former Sales Ring has been transformed into an incredible interactive children's playground under the shade of the long-standing grand Fig Tree - an ideal natural setting for kids to play and learn.
The modern play space, with a central climbing structure, enclosed slides and loads of space for running wild, becomes an illuminated wonderland at night! The surrounding area of Inglis Park boasts an abundance of parkland, outdoor seating and BBQ facilities, and a nearby community garden that welcomes all budding green thumbs.
This playground has a lot to offer. For the younger kids there is: a medium-sized plastic slide with rope to climb, half bubbles on a soft fall wall and tunnels to climb through at ground level. There are a variety of swings, including a baby swing and the favourite circle rope swing. For kids who like a bit of craziness, they can spin around on the merry go round too!
For the older kids, Inglis Park is their oyster. They’ll discover a metal slide about 6m long that is easily accessible from various angles, stairs & a rope corridor that lead to 2 large rope walls. From there they climb up to the top where they can go down 1 of 2 twisted metal slides. There is a strong metal wire enclosure to ensure no one is climbing the wrong way and an enclosed structure house where kids can walk 360 degrees around; including stairs and timber beams.
Open daily 24 hours.
