The Saltwater Creek Reserve is a lovely place to head for a day of screen-free play. There is a playground, BBQ facilities, a BMX track and plenty of green space for a game of cricket or butterfly chasing.

The Liberty Playground is great for parents with young children as it’s fully fenced and completely covered in shade cloths. There are seats for parents and the area is covered in sand and soft-fall mats, so you needn’t worry about your kids getting dirty. Yes, they will get sandy, but that’s what this place encourages kids to do. Kids will love tipping sand onto the spinning wheels, watching it fall off the conveyor belt and trying to master the sand balance centre. There’s also a seated spinner, a see-saw, toddler swings, a slippery dip, a set of drums to bash and a Liberty Swing for children in wheelchairs.

Outside the fenced area are more swings plus a scramble dome for preschoolers and older children.

A walkway runs through the park and is ideal for tots getting used to their wheels, but more experienced BMX bandits will love getting air off the jumps at the dirt bike track.
