Explorer Park Sienna wood Haynes will no doubt be a local favourite. The park offers an 8 metre tall slide tower, 2 different play spaces to entertain everyone and a few barbecues to make this a great spot for the whole family.
When you first arrive the first thing you and most definitely the kids will see is the 8 meter tall “tree of life” slide tower, And the wide open grassed oval. The tree of life tower will have the kids running towards it before they have barely exited the car.
The climb to the first “little” slide is just stairs, great for brave little ones. To get to the top to go down the big slide it is all a layered (like stairs) climbing spiders net, the first step up is also high so little ones can’t get up.
All over the park are various different types of play equipment. The main play area is a mix of nature play and playground, set in the sand pit with the slide tower. With barbecues and picnic benches close by.
Behind the main play area and sand pit is exercise equipment, so Mum, dad or who ever can watch the kids and work out.
On the other side of the tree of life tower is a hill with cement tunnels to explore through with a rope bridge, this area is a great blank “canvas” for imagination play. This area also has 2 picnic benches with barbecues.
Then there is an area for different sport activities all near the big oval. The sport wall is a great addition offering not just a half basketball court, but other sport/activities too.
The main sand pit play area has shade sails up in summer to help protect kids, sadly there are no toilets nearby and from what we saw no drink fountains, Both the picnic areas are sheltered with a barbecue at each, The parking is very minimum.
This is a great park to runaround and burn off energy and catch up with family or friends. The park has been designed for ages 5 and up, but okay for little ones. If the kids get bored or need something for imagination play or it turns out it’s just too big for them there is also Sienna Wood Hilbert’s Shipwreck park 5 minutes up the road (in the car).
