Kellyville is a Hills suburb with lots of great options for families, whether you want to play, ride or splash! Here are our suggestions.

Note:  This is for Kellyville only and we will run a seperate article for North Kellyville to ensure we cover all the play options in the area. 

Play & Splash: Kellyville

Livvi’s Place at Bernie Mullane Reserve Kellyville, Marella Avenue

Kellyville is home to one of the best playgrounds in the Hills. Livvi’s Place at Bernie Mullane Reserve Kellyville ticks all the boxes. Great equipment including water play, shaded, fully fenced, toilets and refreshments nearby!

The Livvi’s Place in the Hills boasts a number of interactive spaces, including a large shaded water play area for kids to splash in, swings, a musical play walk and cool tunnel, picnic area and seating, climbing ropes, cool in-built mini trampolines and so much more – all elements are real novelties for little people! There is also traditional playground towers, slippery dips, a sandpit, a liberty swing, a grassed area to run around (unshaded) and a small footpath for scooters.

Importantly, the access to the area for disabled children is great, with wide flat paths and larger than normal gates. There are also lots of disabled car spots right in front of the playground.

Rutherford Avenue Reserve, Kellyville

This playground is a cracker and offers something for all ages. There’s climbing equipment, a rope structure, little merry-go-round, classic swings and 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’s also an area for older kids with a cool flying fox, large bird’s nest swing and a tube slide. There’s plenty of space to run around plus a half court basketball area. Downside to this playground is that there are no toilets.

It’s just down the road from the brand new Kellyville Grove Shopping Centre and you can pick up a great coffee from there before you play.

Kellyville Village, Wrights Road

Kellyville Village has just upgraded its little outdoor, fully fenced and shaded play area. It also sits right outside a cafe.

Mount Saint Francis Reserve, Redden Drive, Kellyville

Mount Saint Francis Reserve is a hidden gem which has fantastic shaded play equipment for under 5s! Council has recently upgraded the flooring and put in a bubbler to make it even better.

Recent upgraded playgrounds

These are local Kellyville playgrounds that have received a recent upgrade by the Hills Shire Council.

Balmoral Road Reserve. Located within the new sporting complex which includes tennis and multi-use ball courts as well as multi-purpose fields which can be used for AFL, soccer & cricket. There’s a large carpark, toilets, playground & kiosk.

Kellyville Lions Ted Pike Reserve. Playground and basketball.

Half Penny Avenue Reserve. Half Penny Avenue and Water Creek Boulevard. More details on playground can be found here.

Arnold Avenue Reserve.

Ride: Kellyville

Centenary of ANZAC Reserve, Castle Hill

Technically this is actually located in Castle Hill but it’s right across from Kellyville Village so we’ve included it! This learn-to-ride track incorporates pedestrian crossings, stop signs and round-abouts and is great for young bike and scooter riders. There’s an area for parents to sit and supervise. (Notice we didn’t say relax as this word never goes hand in hand with kids learning  to ride!). You can read more here.

Other ideas:

  • Bernie Mullane Reserve (discussed in detail above). In terms of scooter facilities, this is one of those playgrounds that has a path around the play equipment and is nice and flat. There’s also courts which are good for hooning around when they’re not being used.
  • Rutherford Avenue Reserve (discussed in detail above). Great track for scooting or those learning to ride that includes a petrol bowser and markings on the ‘road’.
