New play equipment was installed at Terrigal’s Drummer Parry Park in March 2018, giving this little park a real lift.

The gorgeous butterfly-emblazoned play structure includes two slippery dips, a periscope, a set of tele tubes, and a climbing ladder.

The structure is surrounded by a concrete bike/scooter path that’s shaped like a snake and includes different textures and humps and bumps to roll over. It’s ideal for toddlers who are just learning, and it’s all within eyeshot of supervising parents.

Three cute mushroom stools provide cute spaces for you to break with your tots for morning or afternoon tea.

Be sure to point out the snake’s tongue and eyes on the path. The rock provides little ones with a little viewing platform so they can better see the perspective.

The swing set includes a regular swing and bucket swing and is protected by lots of lovely tall natives.

The park is built on quite a sloping block so it’s not the easiest space to take bubs in strollers. For young ones who love to run and play hide ‘n’ seek and chasings it’s ideal.

All in all, this is a lovely local park that will delight young children. There isn’t a huge amount of equipment to entertain, but if you throw in your children’s bikes and a picnic rug, it’s a nice space to enjoy a picnic lunch.
