in a budding new estate, Woodlea, have built a playground that will leave the kids begging to come back time and again. I first noticed the top of the slide, as we drove over the bridge from the freeway, and I felt like the biggest kid ever as all I wanted to see was a glimpse of the whole park. We visited on a busy Sunday afternoon, and kids of all ages were having a great time! There’s the added bonus of an eatery right across from the park, so Mum and Dad will be set with a hot coffee while the kids can run around and burn off their energy!
Gigantic slide zone:
- smaller, open slide
- larger, enclosed slide
- ropes and ladders to climb
- bridge (with large gaps) to climb to get to larger slides. Not suitable for toddlers by themselves
- mini spring trampolines
- network of tunnels
- shade-covered sandpit
- several buckets on chains, to lift the sand up to the platforms
- smaller slide
- undercover seating
Flying Fox Zone:
- Table tennis table (complete with balls and paddles when I was there!)
- half court basketball court
- 2 flying foxes, one with complete seat and harness for smaller kids. Word of warning – make sure you belt the kids in! They can get to a decent speed by the time the line runs out!
There’s also a connected oval for the bigger kids to kick a ball around.
trying to climb all the bits that he was too small to climb! He was happy to have a jump on the trampoline until he hit his nose when he overbalanced getting off it. Jack was, to be honest, in a bit of a grumpy mood. We tried him on nearly everything, without him showing much interest. After that we gave up and wandered into a few of the display homes (It’s a massive display village, with heaps of parking thankfully!). We stopped off at the park on the way home, and Jack finally showed an interest in the flying fox. Basically screamed as we pulled him out, as there were other people waiting. All he could say was ‘moooorrrreeee’. I think I’ll make the 25 minute trip out here, but most likely during warmer weather and possibly midweek!
