The James Bailey Playground is a quiet suburban park, where kids can have fun, and others can just enjoy being outside. With lush green grass and shady trees this is a nice park if you want to picnic, or has lots of space if you want somewhere for the kids to run around. It might be small, but that doesn't mean that kids won't be able to have lots of fun.

The playground is fairly basic metal structure surrounded by pine bark. Kids can enjoy the slide, swings, or climbing frame at the park. It would be suitable for children of all ages, but younger children would need extra help from parents, and there is not much of the playground for them to navigate by themselves. It is a small playground that would soon become overrun by a large amount of children, but if there are only a couple then the equipment is easily shared.

If you bring along a few things with you to the playground, you'll be able to make sure you have lots of fun. If you bring along a footy or soccer ball there is lots of space to play a friendly game, or just to practice your kicking or dribbling. There is a fence that goes around the park, and it is in a quiet street, so this is also a safe place for kids to play.

For a nice quiet picnic spot, bring along some lunch with you to enjoy on the grass. There are no picnic tables or barbecues at the park, so you'll have to settle for a packed lunch on the grass. If you'd prefer to eat in the shade you won't find a gazebo or rotunda, but you can find shady spots under some of the large trees. There aren't any other facilities like toilets or water fountains, but if you bring enough along with you this is still a great place to visit. There are no dogs allowed at this park, which means unfortunately you won't be able to bring along your four-legged friend. This is a positive for anyone with children who are scared or allergic to dogs, because they can play without having to worry about any unwelcome visitors.

This is a simple playground that is best suited to people living nearby rather than long-distance visitors, but if you find yourself in the area then it is still a good place to go. The grass here is kept in good condition, and the playground is graffiti free.
