Overall: Nappy change table broken 🙁 Otherwise, it’s a great place!
Good Points: Fabulous park. Good size public toilets. Smell-free toilets.
Bad Points: Broken nappy change table.
It’s great to find beautiful, lush parks in the middle of Sydney. On this outing, we checked out Wentworth Common at Olympic Park. This area is wonderful! You don’t have to pay for parking, although it does have a time limit so keep an eye on it if you plan on staying there all day. There’s swings, sandpits, BBQ areas, cycle paths, flying fox, climbing ropes, a big oval, and loads of shaded areas to set up a picnic. It’s our new favourite 🙂
The thing we were most keen to check out, as always, were the facilities for caring for our little ones. To get to the park area, you have to walk along the cycle way which takes you past the public toilets. The wall mounted fold out baby change table is inside the disabled bathroom. However, on this trip the table was broken. There’s a hand written notice on it by one of the SOP Rangers, saying not to use it as it’s broken and apologising for any inconvenience. We haven’t a clue when it will be repaired and ready for use again, but for now…….it’s cactus. So if you’re thinking of heading here with the little ones who require nappy changes, BYO change mats to use on the ground or in the back of the car.
Apart from a dodgy out-of-action change table, it’s a great place to go with the family 🙂 We’ll be heading back again for sure (and with any luck, the change table will be repaired and usable).
