Newport Park, North Road, Newport


This playground area is located on North Road, right before you turn onto The Strand, and right before the gym. It felt great to be able to drive Jack to my old stomping ground, where as a kid I did a year of Little Ath’s and spend many cold wintry nights fishing at The Warmies.

Jack liked:

Hopping up and onto the bike rocker. He happily went for a spin on it! He also eagerly climbed over the suspension bridge and was happy to climb up to go down the slide. He had to patiently wait for his turn on the swing, but as it was not exceptionally busy when we were there (Sunday morning) he wasn’t waiting too long. There is a coffee shop on the corner of North Road and Douglas Parade (about 200m up the road) so you can grab a cup of coffee along the way.
