There is a single large play area at Buffalo Creek Reserve. Catering to both toddlers and big children's requirements. The only problem is the bigger children still play in the toddler area, but they are very mindful and courteous of the younger children. Many parents are found on the equipment as well.
For the toddlers there is a cubby house to play in, big children also seem to enjoy using sticks, bark and anything else they can gather and surround the Cubby House like a fort. The interaction between the children and adults is marvellous. Everyone wants to help adorn the cubby house with extras.
The older children cross bridges, climb wooden walls with a chain, clamber over everything and anything. Some of the designs had me wondering how they were used, however the children with their imaginations will always work a way around these issues. From climbing ladders and spider webs to space walking poles. Play is endless at Buffalo Creek Reserve.
There are multi person see saws that interaction with other children, and single spring n swing or just the good old swings. At the rear of the park is a large open reserve with sheltered seating at the far end. Many children kick balls and race each other to the other end of the reserve. It's a superb area for kite flying, throwing frisbees and remote controlled aircraft flying.
Reserve is suitable for balls, frisbee and kite flying
There is a flying fox that gets very busy and normally a parent volunteers to be the returner for the next child. May I suggest your child does not stand on the flying fox, we did see a injury occur while we were there.
Hunters Hill Council have installed an undercover BBQ and seating area near the open reserve. There is plenty of seating spread out for parents and children are in view at all times at Buffalo Reserve.
The car park is narrow and car spaces fill up fast. This is a very popular park. The ice cream truck makes a visit numerous times during the day. Please ensure your children's safety around the car park as it is extremely busy.
Bring a picnic lunch, or have a BBQ and relax while watching your children wear themselves out in this lovely reserve.
