Strathfield Council has 25 playgrounds located in parks and reserves throughout the Strathfield Municipality. These playgrounds are designed for many different age groups, and each playground provides a different range of activities for its users. Improvements and maintenance aim to ensure that playgrounds meet a diverse range of current and future community needs including specific age groups and people with disabilities.

Strathfield's playgrounds provide both physical and intellectual activities encouraging children to learn and grow developing their minds and bodies in a safe and fun environment.

Current activities and objectives for playgrounds include: 

  • To make Councils playgrounds more exciting and innovative
  • To cater for a wider age group
  • To provide activities for teenagers and youth
  • Provide a wider range of activities and experiences
  • To continue improve safety and lower risk
