The Warner Lakes Dragonfly Playground is a physically challenging play space that sits beside the lake. Its distinctive bright colours make it stand out against the vast green open space so it's hard to miss. The playground at this park has aspects most suitable for older children due to the skill required to navigate some of the play equipment, yet younger children have also been catered for with some special low-to-the-ground design features.

Highlights of this play space include a suspension bridge, various forms of monkey bars, a flying fox and exceptionally long scramble nets. The centre of the playground has a really interesting feature with raised stacked platforms and stars that hang from the shelter roof. This area was popular with our kids as they could play so many different imaginative games, from astronauts to pop stars.

Once the kids have had enough of the playground there is plenty of open space to run, chase, cartwheel or kick a ball. Being close to the lake with connecting concrete pathways all around, it is obviously a great spot for a walk, jog or cycle. The lake view also provides a welcome distraction from the playground. If you can tear the kids away from this park, then there is another playground, the SS Warner, which is a short walk along the pathway. You can read the weekend notes review of this playground here.

Dragonfly Playground is located a fair way into the Warner Lakes estate. Plenty of street parking is available close by although I would recommend taking advantage of the pathways and arriving by bicycle or scooter if possible. If you're after a play space that encourages creative thinking and physical activity, then give Dragonfly Playground a try.
