Botany Park in Hammond Park has gone to the top of the list for the next birthday party. After recently undergoing an upgrade, it contains many great new features and is also fully enclosed, which is great for children of all ages.
features 2 climbing and slide structures, one aimed at toddlers and one aimed
at older kids, plus a rock climbing wall, a nature and water play area, and a
swing area which included a nest swing, a toddler swing and a swing with a high
back and harness. There is also an in-ground spinning roundabout which makes it
accessible to all and the kids loved this the most. Shade sails are in place during summer, however we were glad that they were not there in winter, as it meant the playground dried quickly in between the rainy days.
play area contains wooden balance beams, stepping logs and a wobble beam and
bridge to practice those coordination skills. All leading to the water play
area, climb the rocks or the wall using a climbing rope to reach the water pump
at the top.
Water can be pumped into the levels below, creating a waterfall which runs down into the sand below for some muddy play.
playground there is bike / scooter paths which help teach some road rules,
including crosswalks, keep left and stop signs. There are a few little bike / scooter
racks located inside too, so when they have finished scooting around, they can
park them up.
feature is a free outdoor gym and basketball court right next to the
playground, so why not get a quick workout in while the kids play safely in the
next to a football oval meant lots of room to run and kick a ball around too.
There are toilets in the clubrooms, however only one is unlocked 7am to 7pm
daily. This is the unisex toilet and
shower which also includes a baby change table. Outside of the clubroom is also a
defibrillator in case of emergency. A public water fountain and 2 free gas BBQs are located next to sheltered seating areas, just outside the fence so you can sit and relax while you watch the kids play. There is also a seating area within the playground.
This is a smoke free playground and please also note that no dogs are allowed inside the enclosed play area, so may need to leave your fur babies at home or wait outside the gate with them while the kids play. There are no café facilities at this park, however you can always pick up a coffee on the way, from The Park Hive Shopping Centre.
playground for all ages, the enclosed play area makes it a wonderful spot, where
the kids can run wild and the parents can sit and enjoy watching them play in a
fun and safe environment. The smile on my kids faces was well worth the visit,
they asked if we can again tomorrow!
