Unlimited fun and activites for all ages and abilities
Blenheim Park caters for every ability, with a flying fox, swings and a remote control car track. It is superbly designed and well spread out in age and ability play areas.
As you enter the car park that has 42 spaces (yes I counted them), you'll see a large dog park fully fenced off from the playground. There is a shaded sandpit with a boat and water ski and strap. How fantastic, I have never seen a water ski set up before like this.
Head across the rubber stumps and enter the next sandpit, which is very popular with sand building and creative ideas emerging as the children enjoy moving the sand from one side to another via a slide.
Up the hill is the basketball court and tennis centre. Dog training schools operate in this area. Trails for scooter, bike and walking tracks run through beautiful shrubs, natives plants and indigenous displays.
There is one slide on top of a hill and boy is it fast! Expect to fly off the bottom with quite some speed. Not recommended for adults, you may end in Lane Cove if you do. There are plenty of squeals from this section of the park.
The most popular area of the park is none other than the flying fox. You get quite a whip and are returned just over half way. We saw some children standing on the flying fox, but may I suggest sitting and hanging on for dear life. This was the first time my son had been on a flying fox and I believe we spent over two hours in this section of the park alone. The flying fox also forces interaction between the children as they work together awaiting their turn.
BBQ some snags or bring a picnic, there is plenty of seating in the undercover areas and enjoy a full day out with friends. This is a wonderful park for a birthday or a large group event. Toilet facilities and bubblers are spread throughout the park.
BBQ and sheltered seating is plentiful and well spread out
This is an excellent article. I am very impressed with the natural way it is written. I am a mum and and I love the pics too. It's so good when a writer takes the trouble to think about what kind of info would help the readers. Some articles by other WeekendNotes writers look fake to me. Your articles are very real and I believe your recommendations. Thanks Anne
