I'm always looking for an exciting new place to visit, explore and enjoy.

Enjoy peaceful bushland surrounds while the kids play
Nestled away in the suburb of Eastwood and surrounded by bushland is the neighbourhood playground, Forrester Park. This pretty park lies on the western side of Terrys Creek and views of the creek can be observed through the bush on the opposite side of the playground.
A variety of fun
The park has a decent size grassed area which is perfect for kicking a ball, throwing a frisbee or if a friendly game of cricket is on the agenda, a concrete pitch lies in the centre of the grounds.
The playground area is easily accessed from the road and while there is a perimeter fence along the roadside, it is not enclosed and gated. The playground equipment has been updated in the past couple of years and consists of two swings, a climbing frame with double slide, monkey bars and mini climbing wall, a two-person seesaw and a sit on rider. The equipment is perfectly suited to primary school aged children.
Fun for the young!
Most appealing are the grounds and gardens which are well maintained with many native plants adorning the garden beds. The large gums offer plenty of shade and the grassed area down towards the creek and perimeter of the playing field is a very tranquil spot to set out a picnic rug and far enough from the playground area to get some quiet time if so desired.
Gardens of natives and grasses
For those wanting to adventure further, the Terrys Creek Walk is easily accessible by crossing the pedestrian bridge just down the road. The walk entrance is well marked and keen walkers can take a pleasant stroll or energetic hike through the local bushland which follows the creek.
Relaxing grassed area
Parking is ample and by the roadside, fresh water is available, there are benches for sitting but unfortunately no bathrooms. Otherwise a lovely park in a natural bushland setting, offering fun for kids and a peaceful retreat for the adults - a real gem in suburbia.
