Huge Slide * Trampolines * Swings * Sensory Play * Nature Play * BBQs * Picnic Tables * Water Fountain * Bike Paths * Basketball Hoop
The Stockland developers have invested a whopping $1.8 million into Calleya Estate Playground Banjup. It includes a lot of original play equipment not seen at most playgrounds. The unmissable feature of the park is the sky-high slide, which is only accessible via a climbable rope netting all the way to the top. This slide is not for the faint-hearted!
There is a second smaller slide built into a soft-fall hill, which is better suited for the
smaller kids, and has much easier access.
The park also features sensory play with a few different musical instruments, which I have rarely seen
at other parks.
A large frog drum which operates via a pedal on the floor.
Two sets of Bongo style drums.
And a Praying mantis horn!
There is a set of traditional swings in the centre of the playground, as well as a
basket swing that is towards the back of the playground.
Another great feature of this park, are the two built-in mini trampolines. The size of
these mean only one child at a time can go on, and with soft fall around it there are minimal safety issues, so they can bounce until their hearts content.
There are a few horizontal wooden logs, as well as log steps and a few rocks to
include a nature-based element to the playground. A lot of native mature trees and
bushes have also been kept around the perimeter of the park.
There are three large picnic tables which are undercover, along with a drinking
fountain and barbeques, however there are no toilets.
Also provided is a multipurpose basketball/netball court with hoops and a bike rack.
Opposite the park is a large amount of un-shaded open grassed area suitable for
other ball games.
Calleya playground is a great park with something on offer for all age groups and is perfect for kids who like to explore and enjoy a bit of adventure.
What to Bring: Basketball, scooters/small bikes, soccer ball / football
