A new playground has been built at Alan Davidson Oval in Wyoming that kids are bound to love.
The playground will appeal to kids aged 4-10, as it has a few more challenging rope frames. Younger tots will, of course, be eager to have a go, but carers will need to assist them on the more tricky courses and have arms ready to catch.
As well as the oval, the public space includes a half basketball court and kickwall, so as long as you remember to pack a ball older kids will have fun here too.
The large play structure has multiple elements that’ll challenge preschoolers’ climbing and balance skills:
• Three slippery dips.
• A noughts and crosses frame.
• Cubby shop window.
• Rope bridge and platform bridge.
• Rope climbing frames.
• Bouldering wall with rope pull.
• Elevated crawl tunnel.
There’s also a see saw, swing set (with normal swing and baby swing), plus a group swing.
Alan Davidson Oval Playground
Facilities: No shade, no bins, no bubblers, so BYO everything and remember to slip, slop, slap. There are some trees nearby, but there’s no shade over the playground itself.
Toilets: The toilet block was locked when we visited. We’re guessing they’ll only be opened weekends when the oval is in use.
Fencing: No, but the playground is located a long way from the road and car park.
Age group: The playground is best for kids aged 4-7. The basketball hoop, kickwall and oval will be a hit with older children.
Location: Alan Davidson Oval, 30 Renwick St, Wyoming.
