Location: Park Street, Glenbrook

The theme of the Glenbrook Park is ‘Family’.

With a new playground for young children, as well as play equipment suitable for older children, this park offers a great day out for the family.

Glenbrook Park includes a sportsground which provides plenty of space to kick a ball and have a picnic.

It is also close to Glenbrook Main Street with a multitude of cafes and food outlets, Glenbrook Cinema and Glenbrook Tourism Visitors Information Centre.

The new junior playground at Glenbrook Park is inspired by early forms of transport. It includes: 

  • A horse sculpture called ‘Henrietta’.
  • Climbing apparatus inspired by when Glenbrook was called ‘Watertank’, when trains used to stop in Glenbrook to collect water.
  • A sensory trail which includes a variety of items from trains that can be touched and moved.  These have been mounted at wheelchair height to ensure accessibility.
  • Railway tracks used as balance beams.
  • A set of railway luggage scales used as a small platform or stage for small children.
  • Horse shoes, including large shoes from a cart horse, and
  • Railway sleepers and fettler’s cart wheels, used in the construction of the park.

Facilities

There is a small bike path, as well as picnic benches, accessible public toilets, BBQs and shelter.

District parks

Council continues to improve its four major District Parks to provide higher quality public park spaces that are more accessible, inclusive and have better quality of design and amenities.

Each of these parks will embrace a theme to create a range of experiences across the mountains that builds on each park’s current strength and setting.

Smoke Free Playgrounds

To provide a healthy environment for children, all play equipment at Blue Mountains parks are now smoke free. Smoking is prohibited within 10 metres of any play equipment.
