A newly built playground located along the banks of Bannister Creek in Iveston Street, Parkwood is bound to spark the imagination of children who just can't wait to get their hands dirty and go climbing on its nature inspired structures.
As you head towards the park, you will notice a lack of car parking. This park is created for local use, but you can safely pull up on the kerb on some of the side roads. If you live close enough you can walk or ride your bike down to the park.
The round swing is also a hit with kids who enjoy sitting on this with their friends and getting someone older to push them round and round. When we were there, parents of younger children put all their kids onto the swing and pushed them around. Their laughter and squeals of delight could be heard throughout the playground.
Flying foxes seem to be rising in popularity in local playgrounds and there is one here too. The few times that we have been here, there have always been a line of kids waiting patiently for their turn on this fun ride.
It is a small park, and facilities are limited. There is a lack of car parking and there are no toilets, but there is a water fountain, water bowls for dogs and bike racks. It is made mostly for locals but if you're around the area, pop in to have a look.
