By: Flora James, 09 November 2023

It's no secret that we love a new playground at ellaslist—there are few things that get us as hyped up as a brand new playspace to enjoy with our kiddos. 

Something big has landed in the Eastern Suburbs—with a rocketship taking residence at Waverley Park Playground, alongside a bespoke launch control play tower that is sure to capture the imaginations of Sydney kids and their grownups.

What to Expect at the New Waverley Park Playground

As well as offering an incredibly engaging play experience for kids, the awe-inspiring new rocketship and launch tower are also a nod to the history of the playground, too—with the new one offering a modern interpretation of the park’s original rocket ship that was installed in the 1960s.

In keeping with the theme, the rocketship at the new playground is a nod to the history of the park.

The new Waverley Park Playground is all about embracing history, enhancing nature, providing adventure, and ensuring inclusivity for everyone in the community. The concept design is brimming with incredible features that will undoubtedly deliver a play experience to remember. 

Alongside the newly-built rocketship and launch control play tower, there will be areas for active play, including swings, spinners, and seesaws, as well as a toddler play area with various activities and a picnic setting. There will also be nature, adventure, and sensory play zones, featuring rope climbing, water play, and musical equipment. 

Two new slides, including an accessible option also in the works, alongside an accessible picnic area and an intergenerational fitness area. 

The New Waverley Park Playground Location & Opening Date

Waverley Park Playground is located at Paul Street, Bondi Junction.

The remaining nature/adventure play area, picnic, and intergenerational fitness areas will be upgraded when funding becomes available. The goal is to have the playground ready later this month, weather permitting. Watch this space!
