About 20 minute drive away from home, but close to the freeway, this playground came highly recommended for Jack’s age group. I’d made a visit a few weeks before, but my excitement didn’t match Jacks, as when I arrived, I turned around to find him well and truly passed out. No amount of car doors banging changed the fact that he was asleep. So this time, I headed out after his nap. Although getting close to the start of winter, we somehow managed to grab the last of the autumn sunshine, which thankfully still had some warmth in it. This park is fenced off from the main roads, the buses run along Brunel Street, and the freight trains rumble along the freight line (and scared the you-know-what out of Jack!). The day that we went, the planes were also flying low and frequently overhead.
- rambling pathways and ramps made from timber – stairs, inclines, moving bridges
- climbing walls
- 2 sets of swings – infant and child suitable
- spring rockers
- Loch Ness monster sculpture to climb on
- Frogs and rubber mounds to climb on
- stepping stones through the garden to navigate
- spinning contraption
- sandpit and digger
- water fountain for drinking
- adjoining footy oval to run and kick a ball
- rubber mat flooring and tanbark based
watching the buses and the planes go past. He was more than happy to wander along the ramps, up and down the stairs, but showed no interest in going down the slide. Except for when he wanted to climb it from the bottom up. He had a play in the sandpit, and crawled on top of the froggy. The rubber matting would be great for the kids that aren’t quite walking – it was quite bouncy under foot, and was a welcome break from the parks that have tanbark as their base. Overall a great park that kept Jack and his friends entertained on a beautiful autumn day.
