I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

All the parks near my house seem to have been renovated over the last few years and I've noticed that there's a common theme to the new playgrounds: rarely do they involve a simple structure with some slides and swings.
All the new equipment seems to be themed, whether it's a castle theme (like at Rofe Park) or an army theme (like at Leonora Close Park). Even the most tucked away park, such as Clyne Reserve in Millers Point, is pretty interesting when you take a closer look (in this case the equipment is designed to look like a sunken ship, which I've noticed is becoming common).

These parks have all got me wondering, if they're so unique, yet aren't even that important, what are the others out there like? Where is the most unusual and unique park of them all, sure to spark imagination in any kid?
