When my now Mr 2 was born, we spent many a morning at John Wearn Reserve here while he slept or feed and Mr then 18mos happily played – and I didn’t need to worry about him running off. Due to recent boundary changes, this reserve has been transferred to the City of Parramatta from the Hills Shire. And will be upgraded in 2018/19.
While the fenced, shaded playground at John Wearn Reserve is small in space compared with others, it is perfect for preschoolers and should keep them easily entertained for quite some time. All the equipment inside the playground is sized just right for preschoolers and provides an opportunity for them to try out miniature versions of monkey bars, wall climbing with a rope and chain bridge walking while being close to the ground.
Also in the reserve is a scooter track (complete with a tunnel), swings, basketball court, small snake pit for skaters, bbqs, picnic tables and off-street parking….unfortunately though there aren’t any toilets.
Just around the corner is the North Rocks Park, with a great fenced playground for primary school kids.
