Kids in the Park

It’s school holiday time so cries of "what are we going to do" are echoing across households everywhere.

Thankfully, it’s the perfect time to get down to Sydney Olympic Park for Kids in the Park. The program runs every day of the holidays from 24 September – 9 October.

I love that Kids in the Park offers families great value, with an amazing variety to suit every age and budget. Surprisingly, even my teenager was happy to participate in family events.

Start planning your own school holiday fun now at

Hear no more “I’m bored"!

The holiday guide contains an A –Z guide with over 50 fun activities will keep families active and entertained endlessly. I downloaded the brochure here

It has everything you need so you don’t miss anything as you schedule each child’s favourite activity.

I’ve noticed the program varies each holidays. These spring school holidays there are 16 free fun options including the chance for kids to have a ball of a time at free sports (AFL) clinics or one of the other 12 very affordable options ~ $20 or less per person. Plus loads of NEW activities – have you heard of floorball?

Some activities are available most weekends but every day of the holidays they serve up a wealth of extra special activities.

We have had family picnics and attended school holiday activities there.
My top picks that we have tried or planning to try are
• Riding the bike circuits & tandem bike hire

• Drumz Buzz! ( Drummer boys favourite of course)

• Free Disc Golf : Drummer boys and I love the bargain $6 for the 18 hole Mini Golf

‘Dad’ had a ball on the Golf driving range once and has been itching to go back.

The small boys loved riding the Heritage train on Railway Discovery Tour.

Our teenager and his mates enjoyed skateboarding at Monster Skate Park not long ago.

Now he can’t wait to try the
• Segway fun -

The drummer boys love
• Splasher’s Water Playground ; the best indoor water playground ever $6 child, $7 (adults)

We want to try
• Kite flying & Cakes

In past holidays and on weekends our family has enjoyed the bike trails (bring your own or they can be hired for additional cost), BMX riding, skateboarding and self guided discovery trails. The colourful and fun playgrounds are my preschoolers favourite.

Kids in the park suits a wide range of ages but while your older children are attending activities there is plenty of shade sheltered, covered playgrounds to amuse your little ones. Bring your family or a group of friends and make a day of it.

The Cathy Freeman Park has lots of shady trees and green grass to run them ragged plus splash beneath the famous Olympic Cauldron.

I am an enthusiastic supporter of giving my children different experiences .Kids in the park school holiday programs ticks all my boxes.

The best part is the easy parking available or you can travel by train right to Olympic park.

What activities would you or your children choose?
