Petersham Park is lovely in a â€œstately grandeurâ€ type of way. It is fairly formal with an avenue of enormous trees, an ornate band stand and a lovely little picket fenced cricket oval where Don Bradman made his first class debut and his first century (in the same match). Thereâ€™s a beautiful shady BBQ area with tables enough for a few family groups to gather. This spot is particularly popular for childrenâ€™s birthday parties on weekends.
The park is let down by the playground equipment which is fairly dated. There are a few climbing frames, a small slide, swings and a small roundabout. While kids have fun here, the equipment does not inspire kids to reach new heights and the soft-fall is tan bark which I dislike. The equipment is also a bit worn so you need to check that itâ€™s still safe to use each piece, which is a pity because this park has so much going for it.
Adjacent to this park is the lovely Fanny Durack swimming pool which is great for toddlers.
