Top Ryde Shopping Center – Cnr Devlin St & Blaxland Rd, Ryde, Sydney

****UPDATE**** – The big indoor playground has been removed! NOT HAPPY!!!

Being a brand new facility, one would expect top notch parent room facilities.
They are adequate – not brilliant, but functional and clean.

 
The play area for area for bub’s is quite fun with a couple of those wall mount activity sets and a couple of cushie chairs to sit on. Casey sat on the one closest to the activity set and play with it while sitting down… a girl after my own heart!

The change tables are surprisingly high… I guess for some strange ergonomic reason, however any mother shorter than around 170cm is going have some difficulties.

The private rooms are nice, but again, not really functional. With the chairs, they have opted for a funky motive rather than functional, as a result feeding mothers will have some juggling difficulties.

It was interesting as I watched a small boy climb his way up the OUTSIDE of the twister slide! – one of those – “where is the parent?” moments… I had to walk away, but on a second pass by the area – he appeared to be still alive and smiling, so I guess he was OK!
