Blue Mountains Halls For Hire That Are Near Playgrounds Or Have An Outdoor Area
There are a number of community halls attached to playgrounds or outdoor play spaces which gives you the advantage of an area for outdoor fun, games and mess! We recommend that you visit the site you are interested in hiring before booking, to ensure that it meets the requirements of your party.
The Blue Mountains community halls that are attached to playgrounds include:
Mount Riverview Community Hall – This hall caters for up to 63 people and has an outdoor area that flows onto a small parkland area.
Faulconbridge Community Hall – This hall is popular for birthday parties! It is suitable for larger parties of up to around 112 people and is located next to Browett Park.
Weroona Park Facility, Woodford – The Weroona Park facility is attached to the Weroona Park playground and tennis courts but is only suitable for small parties of up to 18 people.
Megalong Community Hall, Megalong Valley – This hall can cater for up to 120 people. It has spacious outdoor surroundings with playground equipment. Call the booking officer for more information on 0438 879 181.

Glenbrook School of Arts – is part of Glenbrook Cinema but only the hall is for hire. The hall caters for up to 120 people and is located across from Glenbrook Park.
The hall is not attached to the playground but is separated by a carpark so children will need to be walked across and supervised. You need to book through Glenbrook Cinema by emailing: HallHire@glenbrookcinema.com.au
Host A Birthday Party At A Blue Mountains Park Or Playground
Organise a party to remember at one of our fabulous Blue Mountains playgrounds. You do not need to book to have your party at Blue Mountains parks or playgrounds (unless it’s a large community event, in which case you’ll need to fill in a form).
Therefore, you cannot reserve tables or equipment at the park. It is a ‘first in’ basis, so get there early to grab a table! Even better, set up your own trestle tables so you don’t need to worry about table availability.
Many party providers, including Rainbow Children’s Entertainment, Rock Sloth and The Woodland Faerie will also meet you at the park, or any location of your choice! It’s so easy!
A few things to consider when planning your Blue Mountains park and playground party:
- Will you have a theme for your party? Fairies, pirates, water play, Marvel or a Disney theme are popular.
- Are there barbecues available and are they in working order? It is worth checking them before the day of your event.
- Are there sheltered picnic tables to use?
- Do you have a rainy day backup plan?
- Will you need to bring additional seating, picnic rigs and trestle tables?
- What games will you play and should children bring a bike or scooter?
- How will you decorate the space and will they hold up if the wind picks up?
- Bring extra rubbish bags, cutlery, serviettes, cups, an esky of drinks and matches/firelighter if you plan on having candles on the cake.
- Will there be enough food and drinks for children and adults?
- You may need to provide toilet paper and hand sanitiser.

The advantage of hiring this space is that you get access to the hall, which has kitchen and bathroom facilities, as well as a wonderful bush setting to set up activities and games.
There are wooden seats and little log seats in a circle for a firepit (click here to check the fire rating and here for rules during a total fire ban).
Send the Girl Guides a message here or phone them directly at 1300 447 548; 02 8396 5200 or send an email to enquire. The bookings officer will be able to tell you if the date you require is available and how to collect the keys (bookings officers are volunteers so they will contact you back as soon as possible).
If you do plan a bush play party it is essential that all rubbish and food scraps are cleaned up thoroughly to keep our Blue Mountains bushland beautiful and safe for animals.
Please also remember that Bunbinla Avenue is a quiet residential street so noise should be kept to a minimum. Please also remind guests to drive slowly down Bunbinla Avenue and to use the parking area provided within the gates, where possible, to respect the local residents who live near the hall.
