A Fantastic Place for a day of Family Fun

Set on the south side of Bicentennial Park, Jubilee Park is a wonderful place to spend a weekend afternoon with family. This is a popular resting spot for joggers and cyclists jogging and riding along the foreshore, as well as dog-walkers enjoying their daily exercise.

The large park faces Rozelle Bay and Blackwattle Bay, which are always full of boats of all shapes and sizes that make great distractions and talking points. On a Sunday morning, you're also likely to spot some dragon boat teams training in the calm waters of the bay.

From this great spot, you can also take an easy stroll over to nearby Blackwattle Cafe for a lazy coffee or brunch/lunch.

Jubilee Park Lawn

Jubilee Park has a great open and flat grassed area that is perfect for playing ball games, flying a kite or just having a large group picnic.

There is a long straight path where young children can also ride their bikes along the foreshore, a safe distance from the waters-edge to allow them to enjoy themselves and for you to relax and enjoy watching the children play.

Jubilee Park Playground

Jubilee Park has a small playground set on the Glebe side of the grassed area that is suitable for toddlers and young children. The playground is not covered, but is protected from the sun by large trees that provide ample shade from the sun.

While the play equipment is quite basic - there's a round-about, swings, slippery dips and a see-saw, there's enough there to keep the little ones entertained for a little while.

There are some tables and benches nearby where you can sit and sip on a coffee and catch up with a friend while you watch your children play.

Bear in mind that the playground is not fenced, so you'll need to keep your eyes on the little ones to ensure they don't wander off onto the street.

Getting there

Bus: Take Bus Number 431 from the Sydney CBD, which takes you right to the corner of Leichhardt Street and Glebe Point Road, literally just across the road from the Jubilee Park Playground.

Car: There is plenty of public street parking in the area. Note that the parking is restricted to two hours.
