At the centre of the enclosed play area was is a Pirate Ship which doubles as a climbing frame and it has a ‘roller pole’ coming off the centre of the pirate ship and also a slide. There is also a cute small treasure chest at the bottom of the Pirate Ship.
In the middle of the play area you will also find a long climbing rope walk-way for older children to use.
There are a range of swings including toddler swings, swings for older children and an accessible swing chair and a large rope swing. Plus a tunnel with slide on top, a trampoline, roundabout and see-saw.
For younger children there is a lower level climbing frame with small slide. In addition there are some activity boards with different games. Throughout the park are animals – tortoise, shark and crocodile risen above ground level which the children can climb, sit on, jump off etc.
It is a fun park with lots to be explored and discovered. We went when the park was very new and busy. The photos in this post will be updated when we visit at a quiter time.
