Enjoy playing, riding and flying in this local park
Enter this local playground from Rivergums Boulevard in Baldivis. Drive straight along and you will soon spot this cool little park with some big attractions.



On one side of the sand based play area, is the main play structure. It is modern and has platforms, net climbs, slides, stairs and rope balances.



The other side of the playground has a more challenging play area for older kids. The ladder climb is higher and twisted and the platforms are slanted. There is also a climbing wall for kids have a go at.



Between the two play structures is an amazing flying fox. Kids can line up and jump off the platform to swing themselves over to the other side.



To complement this playground, there is a massive man made lake in the middle. Although close to a residential area, the lake is teeming with birdlife.



While we were there we spotted different varieties of ducks and black swans. The birds there are quite tame and enjoy basking in the sun on the paths and will let you get quite close.





A path runs around the outside of the lake so kids can also bring their bikes, scooters and skateboards. Many benches are placed around both the playground and the lake.



Further along the path are two gazebos with bench seating and tables underneath and there are a couple of BBQs for use.



This is a great little park with a bit of everything for everyone. However there are no toilets at this park, which could effect the length of time that most families can stay and enjoy this park and playground.
