Rutherford Avenue Reserve in Kellyville is a complete playground which caters for a range of ages.

The development of the playground meant that it was done in two phases.

The first phase of the playground opened in September 2019 and is great for smaller kids, with climbing equipment, a rope structure, little merry-go-round, classic swings & a bird’s nest swing, stepping logs and a great track for scooting or those learning to ride that includes a petrol bowser and markings on the ‘road’.

There are shade sails over this section of the playground, a bubbler and some seating.

The second phase sits by the first section on a lower deck of sorts, meaning it’s the one playground but slightly separate. This is clever as older kids can play on the equipment in this area with a level of independence, but still be seen by parents from the upper section.

As well as the cool flying fox there’s a large bird’s nest swing and a tube slide. There’s plenty of space to run around too.


The playground’s surrounding area is very pleasant with a half court basketball area, village green, paths and cycleways. There’s also an off leash dog area and barbeques. It’s very peaceful parking on the street is easy, there’s lots of green care of plants & trees and the natural sandstone blocks work really well, providing additional seating as well as natural division of areas.  It is just down the road from the brand new Kellyville Grove Shopping Centre where there are plenty of fabulous food and beverage options and a fancy new Woolworths.

The only downside to this playground is that there are no toilets.
