Located on Armstrong Boulevard in the Western Precinct of the suburb of Armstrong Creek, Armstrong Creek BBQ Shelter and Playground is a fantastic new recreation area.
The area includes a playground which has a large variety of modern play equipment, including:
Swingset with toddler swing and standard swing
Rope Climbing frame
Plastic Noughts and Crosses Board
Speak and Listen tube
Wooden Balance Beams
The play equipment is suitable for children of all ages, and is set on areas of pine bark and sand, with blue "soft fall" rubber pathways. There are also wooden seats for parents to sit down and relax, and gardens with native vegetation. A short distance from the playground, there is a basketball hoop and small exercise area with exercise equipment.
All of the structures in this area feature native Australian hardwoods. The barbecue shelter is constructed of a steel frame with Blackbutt and Spotted Gum cladding, while the seats, tables and other street furniture are made of Spotted Gum. The 'pencil poles' in the playground are also constructed out of Blackbutt logs.
