The inner-west is so blessed with lovely parks with exciting playgrounds. If you are on the hunt for a new park in inner-west, the Marrickville Park is a huge old park in the middle of Marrickville with something for everyone. The park is located at the corner of Livingstone and Sydenham Roads.
The park recently got a major upgrade but still serves as the local hangout. The Marrickville Park got in-ground trampolines, a bike-riding path, a kid cubby house, a climbing structure and slide, BBQs, and an outdoor gym. Also, the park now has a beautiful fence and sparkling clean toilets, including the parents’ room and accessible toilets.
What Makes Marrickville Park Unique
While the Marrickville Park is small, it packs some of the most amazing features such as the trampolines you or/and your kids can bounce along from one to the other, a see-saw, swings, a kid cubby house, and a merry-go-round. Surrounding Marrickville Park is also a level footpath perfect for bikes and scooters, a fitness station, and an off-leash dog area that is too good to resist.
Another thing you will probably like about Marrickville Park is how close the BBQ spot is to end of the park of the kid’s playground, which means you can get yourself a sausage while watching your kids play. This feature is often lacking in other parks. The park has a real community feel and is equipped for all ages.
Families seem to socialize more than other parks because you can see adults also having fun rather than sitting alone with their phones. There is also plenty of shade for a picnic, and the open space is also perfect for a game of cricket and soccer. Marrickville Park Outdoor Gym is also located in Marrickville Park. This gym has exercise and calisthenics in a hub designed for cardio, strength, and mobility training.

Recent Upgrade of Marrickville Park
The Inner West Council recently upgraded Marrickville Park and it looks amazing. The south entrance leads to the latest exercise area with park equipment. The park now has the same quality of apparatus as other parts of the old Marrickville borough. The park ground surface is made of a material that is bouncy and super soft.
Other works completed on the park include new sports oval picket fencing and an upgrade to the tennis club building. Some of the other notable renovations include the new sports amenities building, multi-use courts, and the completion of the Marrickville Park Sporting Walk of Honour and loop pathway.
