Running rings around Kensington Oval is not the only way to have fun in this Eastern Suburbs Park. Enjoy a game of sport on the oval, or head over to the playground to try out the tree house. With heaps of space for running around and having fun, the whole family can find something to do at the oval.



The oval that has once been graced by the likes of Sir Donald Bradman is somewhere to have a friendly game or practice your sporting skills. You can try your bowling arm on the cricket pitch, or have a kick of a soccer or footy ball. Kids will love to climb and explore the grandstand. Just make sure you're not running onto the field when there are actual sporting games on.



You'll also have to make sure that any pets are restrained when there are games on at the oval, but they'll love visiting in. There are paths that go around the oval where you can walk your four legged friend, or even take the kids on a bike ride. When you're done you can also enjoy the picnic and barbecue facilities. There are tables where you can enjoy your lunch, or spots where you can set up a picnic blanket.



The fun playground at Kensington Oval will let the kids unleash their imagination. With climbing frames, slides, swings, and bouncers, there is loads to play with and explore. The playground can be a pirates ship, or an old Scottish castle, whatever your children decide. One of the highlights of the playground is the tree house. It is a bit more extravagant than the usual outdoor tree house, complete with a fun slide, the kids will love playing on this.



The playground sets itself apart from some of the regular playgrounds you'll find around town so it is worth stopping off at. Whether you're looking for a place to kick the ball, or somewhere for the kids to run around a play, Kensington Oval has got some fun things to do.
