Braithwaite Park Mt Hawthorn just got a whole lot better with the addition of a big nature play area in addition to the existing toddler playground.
The Braithwaite Park Nature Play Area was designed for kids 10-14yrs, by Yr 6 & 7 students from Mt Hawthorn PS. Its a great park if you have one of those bigger kids like mine that tends to say "this park is boring" about most the playgrounds we visit - this one got a very different response!
The most popular was of course the double cable flying fox.
This one was another favourite of my bigger boy. Kids need to climb the poles to access the net then they can stand on the platform in the middle. The height of this one was a bit of a thrill for him, but it really is for the bigger kids. He loved swinging off the ropes to get down too.
While this park is designed for kids 10-14yrs, there are lots of features the little ones will love too, just be prepared to need to closely supervise little ones. We are sure the water play feature will be popular with all the kids. There is a tap at the top and water runs through the troughs and through the creek below. Kids can wander through the creek over logs and rocks to see where the water goes.
Kids will loving going back and forth, climbing up the wooden forts and going across the rope bridge too.
These cubby houses will be awesome fun when the plants have fully grown over
For the littler ones there is also a traditional playground in the park that is partially fenced.
It's a great little playground for toddlers and preschoolers - they'll love these lower monkey bars for little ones not yet confident to take on the big monkey bars.
Braithwaite Park Mt Hawthorn also has toilets and a BBQ and lots of parking alongside the park, so it's a great place to catch up with friends and family. You can get coffee just across the road at Casa Bianchi.
What to Bring: change of clothes for the water play
