Baldivis is no stranger to big playgrounds but the $3M Brightwood Adventure Park takes the cake for size with a tall tower the feature of the playground with the biggest slide over 13 metres high!
The big tower, that is the hands down the best and most popular feature of this playground is not for the feint hearted. I saw a few younger kids make the attempt and do the awkward crawl backwards because it was a little high for them.
The tower features a series of pods each connected by open tunnels that take you up to two different slides. The lower one is just under 8m high and the taller one is over 13 meters high. It was super busy on the day we visited so there was a bit of a wait to get to each pod as there is only room through each tunnel for single file climbing. Each slide has some clear sections so you can watch your kids come all the way down.
In the name of adventure there is also a double cable flying fox, that includes one one all abilities seat.
Back on the ground there is plenty of fun to enjoy with a big rope swing, balancing logs, swings (including a toddler swing) and a small cubby house with rope climb inside.
Little ones will love the toddler play area that includes a small basket swing, roller table, spin seat and caterpillar tunnel.
At the other end of the park is a large diamond shaped rope climbing frame and slide with small see-saw and spinning seat at the bottom.
There is also a spinning carousel and small basket swing. The park includes 3 picnic shelters and BBQs and temporary toilets are in place with permanent toilets potentially to be installed in the near future. (Please note: temporary toilets were in place at the time of this review, however they may have since been removed).
Pack the scooters and small bikes because this park also features a scooter track with narrow track with a series of gentle bumps.
If you are looking for a park that is BIG on adventure this is it and there is plenty of fun for adventurers of all ages. Parking is available within the street and a carpark is also available on the other side of the playground.
