Nature Playground * Nature Walks * Flying Fox (May be Out of Service)
Bannister Creek Nature Playground Lynwood is a small playground that provides nature-base play equipment for a wide range of age groups.
There is no designated parking here however there is plenty of verge to park on in nearby streets. My recommendation is to park on Brampton Way and follow the foot path to the playground. This is a great park for locals to visit as it has plenty of paths leading to it and a rack to store your bike.
The park has a few pieces of play equipment, and while they are more modern in style
they are all framed with wooden logs. The equipment consists of a netted climbing frame,
basket swing, monkey bars, balancing rope and balancing poles.
The area is encircled with tree log steps which add an extra element of play. There is also
a large log with a hole cut in to it to act as a mud kitchen, for the kids to create all sorts of
wonderful natural concoctions
The most unique feature of the park are the turtles. These are made of coloured softfall for
the shells and carved logs for the legs and head. They are a lot of fun for the younger kids
to climb on and get a feel for different textures.
There is also an awesome flying fox, however it seems to have been indefinitely closed by
the City of Canning, despite their sign saying it's only temporary, it has been closed for at
least the last 6 months.
The area is shaded by the beautiful, large, near-by trees, and also has a small shaded
bench. It has a drink fountain with a dog bowl to drink from, however there are no toilets or
If you want to extend your visit there is a nearby walk path that takes you along the creek
and over a couple of bridges. There are signs of the local flora and flora built into the path
which my kids love to point out and try to name.
