If you have a mini ninja warrior who loves to climb, swing and show off their muscles, then this is the park for them. This awesome new playground at Narara has some high monkey bars and a large overhead net that properly challenges little monkeys.
Opened this month, this new playspace has been built with infants kids in mind. It’s a space where they can run, spin, jump and climb without worrying about knocking over toddling toddlers in their excitement.
The orange and green climbing frame has a metal climbing frame, a rope wall and a fireman pole. There’s also a steep slippery dip that boots kids off the end. This makes it super fun for older kids, but perhaps a little daunting for young ones.
There’s a group spinner with rope climbs which offers something a little bit different for kids who love to get dizzy. Plus a well-loved group swing.
Next to the playground are outdoor basketball courts and an oval, which makes this a great space for families who have active kids. Corellas love the area too, so if you have a child who loves native birds it’s a fun place for birdwatching.
