We love this new little play space that has popped up at Forresters Beach! Archibald Playground is sure to be a hit with toddlers and bigger kids with its variety of structures and obstacles.

The slippery dip frame features easy to climb steps for little legs as well as a handy ramp for babies and young children who are becoming that bit more mobile. With its bright colours and puzzles, this is a great structure for the very little children who love to explore. Plus, its not too high and is set upon soft fall bark so parents can relax a little too!

The set of swings caters to all different ages and features a baby swing seat, a big swing and a net swing.

For the slightly bigger kids, there’s a challenging climbing frame that invites mini-adventurers to reach the summit and either go up and over or swing across to the other side on the monkey bars. There’s a web climbing net, suspended stepping stones and a climbing wall that will keep kids busy working out where to go next!

Surrounding one of the parks many trees is a cute nature play area made up of animal-themed, log beams and obstacles for kids to test their balancing skills.

Last but not least, there’s a flying fox that will delight kids of all ages. Whether kids are hanging on to mum or dad or brave enough to take the plunge by themselves, this cool feature will have kids begging you to go back again and again!
