Kingsford Park is a picturesque nature
playground nestled into the heart of the new Kingsford Estate Bullsbrook.
The $1.4m playground boasts a tall climbing tower with 2 big slides. The tower features a vertical rope tunnel to climb up through the boxes. There is a platform halfway to enter the first slide, which believe me is very fast for parents that need to accompany their wild toddlers. For the real thrill seekers, continue climbing all the way to the top to find the biggest slide.
There is a smaller slide attached to the nature play hill alongside the sand pit area that is covered by shade sails and also features a swing set. There are plenty of low walls and raised garden beds to sit on to supervise children playing. Little ones will definitely need some extra supervision at this park due to all the rocks and high balancing points.
The interactive water play station in this area, starts with a water pump to make the water flow down to fill the stone pools, turn handles to push the water all the way down to beneath the platform at the very bottom of the playground and into the little stone splash pool, that was most loved by all the toddlers.
There are numerous nature play areas around the park with a cool maze of balancing beams, lots of logs, stones and gardens. Luxurious stone steps lead up the hill to find the water pump and small slide. You could also use the large balancing log or climb through the gardens and use the stepping logs if you prefer.
The park has a shelter with 2 picnic tables and a large BBQ area with plenty of space to setup for events but you will need to bring your own chairs. Large grassy areas perfect for picnics and to kick the footy. If you prefer basketball or netball you are good to go with a concrete pad and hoops. You can also take a walk down behind the multilevel amphitheatre area, to find the beautiful natural bush and creek.
Toilets are located within the park (however were not yet functioning at the time of the review) and street parking is available. If this is full it is only a very short walk to carparks and the nearby Tailwinds Café is perfect to stop to grab a coffee before your play.
Kingsford at Bullsbrook is a picture-perfect park with nature play, water play and plenty to climb. With parking and toilets onsite and a café close by, there really is nothing else you could ask for. Keep in mind this park is designed to be fun for all ages but does require lots of supervision due to the location and challenges. If you are looking for an exciting adventure this park is for you. Right on the edge of beautiful bushland and with all the features you need for a short play or to hang out all day, you will not be disappointed.
