Bicentennial Park has been a favourite among children for many years. The park was a favourite of mine when I was a child and now I can watch as my siblings, nieces, nephews, and cousins enjoy the huge play space.
The park features a great deal of fun play equipment for kids to use. Favourite of ours are the two long steep slides. It is very fun to race your friend down the slide, it's quite long and can get quite busy as it's one of the most popular pieces of play equipment there.
There are many swings available at the park, which is my cousin's favourite thing to do. The monkey bars and the flying fox are other favourites.
Bicentennial Park also has a big skate park for older kids to enjoy with their skate boards, scooters or bikes. It is been revamped, which is great, and makes an awesome spot for teens to hang out.
Along the park you will also find many walking tracks where you can take your dog for a walk as they do allow dogs on leashes there.
I found the park and restroom facilities to be very clean when we visited. It felt as though the council was very invested in this park because of all the funding they put into it plus keeping it tidy for visitors as well.
We like coming to this park because there is lots of seating available plus undercover spots and barbecue facilities. It was the venue of choice for my nephew's first birthday many years ago and it a was fantastic day for the whole family. You can also find comfort knowing there is a public restroom available.
If you have someone in your family who uses a wheelchair, they do have a liberty swing here to use which is lovely. One of my cousin's friends used this when we had a Christmas catch up last year and she said it made her feel included at the playground.
I would recommend this park to all families with kids who love playgrounds as it is truly one of the best play spaces in the City of Kingston area.
