Merret Playground is part of Waverton Park which is located on the upper tier of park on Woolcott Street in Waverton.


It is also just a stone throw away from the park's sports field and bowling club.


The playground is fully fenced but easily accessible via a smooth and even pathway. It features a spacious lawn for kids to run around and beautiful views of the harbour as the backdrop.


The main attraction of this playground is the 'gas station and motoring' themed playhouse which includes petrol browser, pumps, candy shop and a mechanic workshop. Any idea why the playground is being themed as such? In my opinion, perhaps it's due to the history of Waverton being the former site of BP oil company which has undergone re-mediation and transformed to Carradah Park (just walking distance from the playground).

During the weekends, the playground is quite popular among toddlers and kids engaging themselves in role-playing games, pretending to buy sweets or gas fuel.








Tunnel slide, spinning cup, and rocking car are some of the other popular play set featured in the playground. There are four swings including one with safety belt suitable for toddlers.


If you would like to bring lunch or picnic in the playground, there is a small table and some stools (nice for kids to learn about shapes as well) suitable for kids as well as benches and table for adults under the tree.


There is also water fountain installed to quench your thirst on hot days (it looks quite new to me, but I did not check its working condition). All in all, Merret playground seems to have something to offer for kids of all ages and abilities. It is well-kept and clean.
