Our parks


During Council’s recent programmed playground inspections, a number of defects were identified in the playgrounds at North Rocks Park and Hazelwood Rose Park, that require immediate attention. This means the specific areas in the playgrounds will be closed until the parts can be replaced and the area can be made safe. We apologise for the inconvenience.


The City of Parramatta recognises the importance of play in encouraging the physical, psychological and social development of children.

Across the City’s parks and reserves, Council aims to provide inclusive play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities.

There are currently over 150 playgrounds spread throughout the City.

Fenced playgrounds throughout the city may include:

  • partially fenced which involves the larger park fully enclosed by a fence and/or boundary
  • fencing alternatives such as plants and nature based elements may be used if appropriate
