We’ve found a Central Coast playground that carers of young ones are going to love! It’s fully fenced, it has shade and the equipment is aimed at the under fives. Mothers groups rejoice!

The playground is attached to the Bateau Bay Community Hall, and the whole set up is available for hire for kids birthday parties, mothers group catch ups, playgroups and family gatherings.

Here’s the big drawback: this space isn’t available to everyone all of the time. A group may have booked and paid for the use of this space, and they’re not going to be very happy about the arrival of a bunch of randoms. If you plan a trip here, just be aware that the space may be occupied by a group, and if that’s the case we recommend you head to the nearby Kurraba Oval Park instead – it’s a great space too.

Often, though, you’ll find that this park is empty, or occupied by only one or two other mummies and their tiny tots.

There aren’t many outdoor playgrounds aimed at the under fives – young ones tend to have to battle it out at playgrounds better suited to primary kids or stick with the indoor soft-play zones. We were pretty excited to find this play space with equipment aimed at tiny tots:

  • Play equipment with slippery dip and rope wall.
  • Swings – standard swing and toddler seat.
  • Pod swing.
  • Jeep for “driving”.
  • Climbing hut with bouldering holds.
  • Sea horse rocker.
  • Play table.
