My family and I dropped by the Darling Quarter playground one sunny weekend, and the place was buzzing with activity. The playground is indeed bigger than the old one that it replaced and it had a crowd to match! If you can, try to visit the playground during the week to avoid the crowd.
The playground has an extensive water play area with locks, sluices, pumps and water buckets. There are also play areas for every age group, from synchronised water jets to flying foxes and big slide, octanet, jumbo swings, 3D swing, balancing beams, climbing walls and a spinning wheel.
There's a little alfresco cafe just next to the playground for parents to relax while the children play. If you want a more comfortable sit-down meal, head to one of the many restaurants at Darling Quarter such as Stacks Taverna, Nok Nok Thai Eating House, Janus and more.

Special tip: If you are planning to bring the family to Darling Quarter, Sydney city's newest entertainment precinct with the CBD's largest playground - don't forget to bring swimming costumes for the kids and be prepared to get wet!
