This park will delight both young and old with its natural elements and sculptural design. Some 200 members of the local community were involved in the development of this playground (which opened in July 2016), and it’s clear that a lot of thought and tenderness went into its design – this ain’t no cookie-cutter park.
Toddlers and preschoolers are encouraged to test their balancing skills across tree trunks, and they’ll get a thrill petting and clambering over the giant (and very cute) wooden lizard and iguana. There are swings for kids both little and big, a giant basket swing and a scrambling net for school-aged kids.
The park has been planted out with natives, but until the trees develop the area is very exposed and will get super hot over summer. On the plus side, it’s a lovely sunny play space in winter.
