This park is bounded by Haining Street on one side and Boundary Road on the other. We approached it from the Boundary Road side and then walked down a steep flight of stairs and along a narrow path (next to Rainworth State School) before cutting across what was obviously a well-used grassy track to reach the park.
I tell you this only because my sons (aged 8 and 10) loved the novelty value of the steps and the path and thought they were a lot more fun than just pulling up in the car on the Haining Street side.
The park itself has some big grassy areas with trees, a shelter shed with a barbecue, and two small playgrounds.
Both playgrounds are very much for pre-schoolers, with nothing to challenge an older child. But the open areas of the park were good for a run and to kick a ball, and there was plenty of room to walk our dogs (though no off-leash area).
As I said, we were just there for a quick leg-stretch, and the park was good for that. It also looked like a nice place for a playgroup get-together, a younger kids' birthday party, or just a quick break from the four walls of home if you have a young child and you're getting cabin fever.
Thanks for a great write-up. I was a Bardon local and used this playground frequently with my under 2s. It has recently been completely redone. There is more play equipment and might be suitable for older children now. Cheers, Miranda
