Pirrama Park, Pyrmont

Pirrama Road, Pyrmont
Pirrama Park is an attractive harbourside park that ticks a lot of boxes: engaging playground, including a water play area, grassy space, paths for riding bikes and scooters, contemporary toilet facilities and a great cafe within the park.

The playground, which features equipment to suit a variety of ages, has a rubber and woodchip surface. It includes a huge climbing net for older children, a castle-style climbing structure with slide for younger ones, an equal-access spinner, four swings and a large sandpit.
The sandpit offers plenty of interest with digging equipment, large sandstone blocks to explore and water features.

The water play area, which is of course a massive hit on warm days, has a variety of small and large jets spraying water.

Another highlight is the cafe, Call Me Harris, situated within the park next to the toilet facilities. This is not your average park kiosk, mind – it has a delicious gourmet menu, including all-day breakfast and lunch options, and a kids’ menu too. The cafe has plenty of seating in a covered area, the service is friendly and the coffee is excellent. Oh, and they do baby cinos with marshmallows, if that’s important to your little ones! Call Me Harris is open 7 days from 8 am to 4 pm.

Warning! If you have a child who likes to run …. away from you, then honestly Pirrama Park is not the park for you. It is just a short bolt from the playground to the unobstructed water’s edge.

Although the surrounding trees and umbrellas provide some shade, you will need sun protection. Also, if you’re headed to the water play area, bring swimmers, swimming nappies for any children who are not toilet trained, towels and spare clothes.
Pirrama Park has ample seating throughout the play area and beyond. For family and social gatherings, there are tables with seating undercover and barbecues available for use.

Metered parking is available right next to the playground on Pirrama Road. There are usually plenty of spots available on weekdays during term time, although it can be difficult to get a spot here during busy times during school holidays and weekends. The park can also be reached by the 389 bus. Alternatively it’s a short walk from the John Street Square light rail stop.

  • […] Pirrama Park Pirrama Road, Pyrmont The harbourside Pirrama Park ticks a lot of boxes for a park gathering – with a word of caution. It is just a short distance from the playground to the unfenced water’s edge, so if there will be young children who are likely to stray this is not the venue for you! The facilities are otherwise excellent, with an engaging playground including a water play area, picnic tables, barbecues and a contemporary toilet block with baby-changing facilities. Popular cafe Call Me Harris is situated within the park and offers catering. In fact, you can even book the cafe for your function. Read our full review of Pirama Park. […]
