Children and families of Fairfield now have an exciting new play facility with the highly anticipated $1.5 million Fairfield Adventure Park opening next week.


The occasion will be marked by a family fun day from 11am-1pm on 10 April, featuring a free BBQ, face-painting and parkour performance by Team 9 Lives, demonstrating the diverse and exciting ways to have fun with the new park equipment.


Fairfield City Mayor, Cr Frank Carbone said the park will bring some exciting recreational opportunities to the children of Fairfield.


“Fairfield Adventure Park provides a unique offering; it is designed for children in their early teens, providing for the recreational needs of older children. It is also connected to an existing playground suitable for young children. This makes the area a place that children of all ages can enjoy,” Mayor Carbone said.


“The Park features some exciting equipment, including an 11m high giant climbing net, slides and sky bridge combination- one of the tallest of its kind in Australia- and a 33m long double flying fox.


“Additionally the park features a giant swing, trampoline, table tennis table and barbecues and picnic tables, making it the perfect place for the family to spend a day out.


“I encourage everyone to bring their families to our official opening at 11am-1pm, 10 April and experience the fun first hand.


“Fairfield Adventure Park is situated next to the existing Fairfield Leisure Centre and the soon to be complete Fairfield Youth and Community Centre. The area is also surrounded by plenty of sporting fields and natural parklands. This all comes together to form a large recreation precinct, perfect for a family day out and just a ten minute walk from Fairfield station and CBD.


“Upon being re-elected in 2013 I made a commitment to make Fairfield a better place for families. This is just one of the major projects being delivered that bring better facilities to Fairfield City. Other exciting projects in the pipeline include the Fairfield Youth and Community Centre and much anticipated Water Park at Prairiewood Leisure Centre, featuring a Stingray surfing/skim-boarding half pipe ride.


“Upon completion Fairfield City will hold some of the best family facilities in all of South West Sydney. There will be no need for anyone to travel elsewhere for a great family day out,” Mayor Carbone said.


Fairfield Adventure Park is funded by Fairfield City Council and the NSW Government.
