Burwood Skyline Drive-In Playground

Jul 4, 2021 | Playgrounds | 0 comments

While it might not look like much, this playground is situated on what was the home of Australia’s first drive-in theatre.

This cleverly crafted playground has a car and a drive-in ‘screen’, as its main play structures, paying homage to what once stood.

The ‘screen’ structure has scramble walls, a rope net, slide and a ladder. There is a swing set and horse springer close by. Keep in mind that older kids might get bored rather quickly with the limited play features on offer.

In my opinion, the best part of this place is the old ticket booth that’s been repurposed into a shelter with seating and BBQ.

If you’re a lover of history like me, you’ll also appreciate taking a walk along Sinnott St, where an old settlers shelter sits amongst the community gardens.

All in all, a simple, yet beautiful little playground that caters to those wanting to enjoy a play and lunch.
