Hidden away on a quiet suburban street is a cute little park with a modern kids play area, table and seating and a nice walking track. This playground is fenced and there is plenty of street parking.
The park is 4.8 hectares of bushland reserve. It was named after Ottorino Losco who died in 1979. Mr Losco worked over 10 years for the Parramatta Council in the Parks Division, until his death in an accident whilst working at Norford Park. The park was named in his memory.
What we like about this park is that it features modern play equipment such as the Cumulus Swing, a neat climbing structure with slide and swing set. It offers children something a bit more unique compared with other parks and we feel children can achieve a whole new playing experience. The park has Synthetic grass and rubber safety surfacing making it comfortable to play. Its very safe with lovely surrounding trees and plants.
The playground is suitable for toddlers up to big kids. Smaller kids may need some help getting up to the children’s slide as the climbing ropes and the very wide runged ladder may be a bit tricky for them to climb.
The park is situated near Northmead Public school. It’s nice and peaceful here and very popular during the weekday afternoons with parents catching up with friends while the kids have a play after school pickup.
