We were visiting friends in Bardon the other day and wanted to stretch our legs and get kids and dogs out of the house. So we took a quick walk to Rainworth Park .

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.

One playground has swings, seesaws and rockers, and the other has a slippery slide, monkey bars, and a cubby house. Both have shadecloth and the park seemed to be reasonably shaded throughout.

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.
