4 Fun Playgrounds In The Hills District, Sydney

There are so many more in the Hills District for us to tackle but we tackled FOUR in one day and loved every one of our new playgrounds!

Have you been to any of these? Do you like them? What is your favourite playground in the Hills District? 

Balcombe Heights Estate Playground- Baulkham Hills

Where is it? Google Maps – follow the road you turn into off Seven Hills Rd going past the first 2 lots of car parks. 3rd car park on your right and playground is just down from the car park. I just typed ‘Balcombe Heights Estate’ into google maps on my phone and followed my nose.
