Putney Park is located on Pellisier Road at Putney in the Ryde City area, and is a great place for family picnics with a fantastic playground and beautiful waterviews. The Park has electric barbecues, a number of big shelters and toilet facilities.
The park has a number of playground areas and a large open grassed area, the main playground area features a huge tower slide that older kids will love and the little ones may want to take a ride with their parents. There is a nice shaded wading pool for those warm days where the kids can play and cool down, or they can hang out on the big spider net climbing tower.
The park runs along side a picturesque part of the Parramatta river and offers a good opportunity to have a walk and explore the foreshore area and play on the small natural beaches, or throw in a line and catch yourself a fish.
What a great article. I love the pictures, too. I live so far away from Ryde but I'm tempted to venture out towards that park! It's so cool that you can go fishing, it seems almost like a centennial park except in Ryde instead of the eastern suburbs.
