Have a child who loves a little whimsy and magic? How about a mini eco warrior? Get them to the gorgeous new nature playground at Pinyari Park in Kincumber.

Built under the shade of tall mature gums, the play equipment is made from raw timber and rope and consists of a cubby (or cafe) and multiple structures to balance on.

This play area is a serene little hideaway, and the perfect space to encourage imaginative play. Surely fairies, gnomes and elves can also be found here… just ask your children to look.

Be sure to bring your balance bikes and scooters, too, to hoon around the track.



This gorgeous park was created from a particularly lovely story. A couple of years ago, local federal member Lucy Wicks received a letter from a then twelve-year-old Nina – a local of Pinyary Close – asking if a set of swings could be replaced at the local park. Lucy and Nina walked the neighbourhood and received 300 signatures to a petition for a new playground in the area.

Subsequently, during the 2019 election, the federal government committed $90,000 towards the creation of this new nature playspace. The playspace was designed by Emma Wallace of Central Coast Council and opened in July 2020.

Thank you to Nina (and her cousin and mum who were also involved in the original petition), Lucy Wicks, Emma Wallace and all of the playspace development staff who were involved in the build of this gorgeous space.
