The Orang-utan Park
in Golden Bay is full of climbing challenges for daring adventurers. This park
is aimed at older kids or those who are capable climbers. If you have visited
the Orang-utan enclosure at Perth Zoo, this park has similar structures to it
with three large podiums, swinging ropes and leafless tree trunks.
The three large podiums have an assortment of climbing structures. There is a sky high rock climbing wall, rope ladder, climbing net and massive fireman’s pole. There’s also a slide which runs down one of the podiums.
On ground level there
are a few sets of musical drums, balancing logs, basket swing and brightly
coloured blue and yellow tractor wheels.
The play area is covered in a mix of sand, softfall and rocks. Unfortunately there aren’t any shade covers or large trees to shade the playground, so I expect it will be quite hot in summer. The definite favourite of the day was the rock climbing wall. I haven’t come across one that is this large before
The park also offers a large grassed area with football goal posts, picnic benches and a barbeque, however there are no toilets.
If you find your kids aren’t quite old enough to enjoy this park, the Colour Block Park is just around the corner and is much more suitable for younger kids. Make a day of it and playground hop all the parks in Golden Bay including the Colour Block Park and Sunset Hill Park.
