Bruce Miller Reserve is a bushy, grassy reserve on Trumper Street in Ermington. Set amongst trees, you will find a small playground in one corner. And over the other side of the reserve, is a gorgeous street library and lovely community garden that you can visit at any time.
Bruce Miller Reserve is named after a local nurseryman, who served in the First World War with the Australian Light Horse Regiment. So a fitting spot for a community garden.
Everyone is welcome to visit this vegetable and herb community garden. In return for helping with the garden, you can help yourself to some produce.
There is a roster of the regular gardeners outside the shed. And members of the ParraParents team visit on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. To get involved, join the Bruce Miller Reserve Garden Club Facebook group.
Outside the gate to the community garden, is a lovely street library. It is full of books that you can enjoy for free. And you are also welcome to donate books to it at anytime.
The playground is fenced on three sides, with the back open to the reserve and a gate along the road.
It is naturally shaded and has:
- swings, including one with a toddler seat
- climbing play gym, with a slide, climbing wall and car themed cubby house.
- wooden stepping stones
- horse rocker
- caterpillar prints and climbing statue
There is also nature based play for the kids, with bush to explore around the playground.
Apart from the playground and lots of open green space, there is a small picnic shelter and a few park benches around the reserve.
