It’s a large reserve with playgrounds for young and older kids, sports fields, walking paths, toilets, BBQs, picnic tables and dog off leash area.
Plus a NEW skate park opened in April 2019!
The playgrounds are spread across the top side of one of the ovals. They have a good mix of sun shades and natural shade and a great variety of play equipment. There is a swing set, traditional playground for young kids, ‘climbers delight’ playground, liberty swing and a playground for older kids.
The traditional playground has stepping stones, kangaroo rocker, a swing set (with toddler seat), slide, wobble bridge, firefighters pole, angled climbing poles and monkey bars.
The ‘climbers delight’ playground has two hammocks, climbing steps, small climbing frame, metal slide, angled climbing pieces and a big climbing frame with connecting balance bridge.
Next is the fenced liberty swing.
The playground for older kids has a hand held flying fox and a rope climbing dome with a rope ladder leading up to it. It looked like it was suitable for older children. Possibly need to be 10 years old to reach the flying fox (without a parents help!).
The stand alone swing set looks like it might have been from a previous playground. It has one toddler seat and one child seat. And it’s about 30 metres away from the traditional playground.
The playgrounds overlook an oval that has a walking path right around it linking with some more paths. There are quite a few trees near the edge of the walking circuit so you can enjoy your walk/ jog/ scoot/ ride mostly in shade.
Near the playgrounds are a few bench seats, a couple of picnic tables and a double BBQ.
There is another sports ovals. And both sport fields are used for soccer in winter and for touch football in summer.
And toilets are in between the two sports oval, near the carpark.
There is also a fenced dog off leash area. It’s on one side of the carpark and on the other side is the toilet block and the new skate park currently being built.
