Digger Park
There's a quiet park in the back streets off Mowbray Road, Lane Cove, that has no name. My son has nicknamed it Digger Park. A small park, packed with plenty of activities for children of all ages.

Digger Park at Batten Reserve

There is a digger machine, allowing kids to move as much bark chip as they please. There is a twirly sickening pole, that is beyond me how it spins without help, but keeps the children amused and a spring n swing. I am a big kid and definitely have had a few goes on the digger. I wish they were around in my days of park adventures.

There's a climbing wall within the play equipment, and what my son also calls pirate poles. Their real name is space walk poles. These poles, are attached to a chain and the children have to step their way across without falling off. There's a highly popular piece of equipment with telescopes, activities on the ground level and a spider web climbing section--you'll also find separate swing area with adult and baby seat swings.

Digger Park is next to Batten Reserve--tree lined park with plenty of shade and seating. There's a large brick wall and concrete area, which seems to be for solo handball or tennis. Digger park is on the smaller size, but I personally like the fact its a quiet park, with little to zero litter. It's a credit to Lane Cove council. The grins on the children tell you its a wonderful little park; full of fun and excitement.

Pirate poles and activitiy area

Parking is advised at Kullah Parade, near Batten Reserve. The park is fully fenced and my son and I have been attending this park for 7 years and he still begs to go back when we are passing through the area.

On Kullah Parade, to the east of the park is Batten Reserve. The bushland it is slightly overgrown and the council are currently clearing this area as the track is hard to find, The track is in the vacinity, opposite 4 Kullah Parade. I was informed, the track leads to a creek and joins some further tracks to the east of this area.
