After seeing a few pictures online about Greengate Park in Killara I had to go check it out myself. Then the baby fell asleep in the car while we were in the area so I knew I had to grab my chance. After seeing it, I immediately planned to go back with both kids in tow. It’s that lovely.
There is parking along Greengate Lane and Bruce Avenue. It is limited and not ticketed as it is normal residential parking. We visited late on weekday afternoon and it took us a few loops round the block to get a parking.
Greengate Park and Playground Facilities
The park has a lovely flat open area on the North side with benches under trees along the path. It’s perfect for a picnic or just to have a coffee as you watch you little ones scooter round and round the park.
The whole area is fenced except for a small area up a flight of stairs on the south-side (on Greengate Lane).
There are a few tables under shade for summer visits and BBQs if you want to have a longer lunch time visit.
The BBQ and shaded area look out over the open lawn, the playground and backs onto the garden area. The garden are is lovely. It is so beautifully looked after and maintained, I would even go so far as to called it manicured. There are also ramps going up into it so the scooter and pram can go with.
Greengate Park and Playground Features
The playground itself isn’t big but it’s got enough going for it that smaller kids. Pre-schoolers and kindergarten kids can spend a couple of hours going round and round.
The little chubby cheeks in the picture is my one year old who cried when we left.
And hanging to the ropes is our three year old who also threw a tantrum when we left.
The downside to Greengate Park
With a big open picnic area, play set, a beautiful garden and a path around the Park it’s got 99% of what you want. The only missing 1% is that there are no bathrooms. I would honestly have my son’s 4th birthday party here but there aren’t any loos.
