The Wattle Grove
nature playspace incorporates the beautiful natural surroundings of Woodlupine
Brook with playground elements, to allow kids to enjoy the great outdoors while
encouraging creative play
One of the first things we noticed when we got to the park was the 5-way swing, where five people can swing at the same time!
Behind the swings,
amongst the native landscape, are some large logs and netting to access a
wooden platform. This play element requires some balance and a bit of
Running through the middle of the park is a creek bed. During our visit it was dry, but I have heard that after some rain the creek fills up and adds that extra bit of adventure, especially if you choose to cross the creek via the log bridge - so bring the gumboots and spare clothes along if it's been raining just in case.
The park also has a polished concrete slide over the top of a tunnel. The slide is super-fast and the kids had a lot of fun going down it over and over again. It was their favourite part of the park.
There is a hammock swing towards the back of the park which can be used to practice balancing or for laying back and relaxing.
There are lots of
native trees and bushes providing natural shade to the area, as well as
benches, tables, water fountain and barbeque.
Wattle Grove nature playspace is a great small park where kids can get back to basics and enjoy nature at its best.
Please note that during our visit the car park
was covered in broken glass. There was no broken glass in the actual park, but
please be aware and vigilant
