It would be easy to not know that Don Moore Reserve exists. It’s tucked behind North Rocks Public School, next to the Muirfield Golf Club. Even once you drive in and park at the on-site car park, you may miss the fenced playground tucked behind the amenities block.
And while it’s a fun little playground, we’re looking forward to it getting upgraded in 2019.
The playground is small, with a synthetic grass ground, and perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.
Within the shaded, fenced area, there is the following play equipment:
- train rocker
- surf/skate board balancer
- two swings, one with a toddler seat
- climbing play gym, with slide, climbing walls and bridge
- vertical, chain stepping poles
- car front with two steering wheels
Just outside the fenced playground are toilets, but no baby change table that we could see. Within sight of the playground, there are a number of picnic shelters and a dual bbq. Plus there are two lots of netball courts that are great for riding bikes and scooters on.
Keep in mind that Don Moore Reserve is an off leash dog park as well.
