Steamroller Park

Published May 14th 2012
Steamroller Park in Stirling, located about 20 minutes south east of the city, is a really great park to stop at for a quick play, a picnic or even to hold a party at.

This playground has equipment that covers lots of ages and abilities. In our search for good playgrounds, we have come across some that have equipment that is great for older kids or younger kids but not many that covers both really well but Steamroller Park does. It has one section that caters to the younger kids and a larger section that has lots for the older kids to play on.

The younger side of the park has some smaller equipment such as a slippery dip, two swings and a short course where they can practise their balancing. It is great having a slightly separate area for the younger kids as the older ones can sometimes forget to be careful of the little ones.

The larger section of the playground has all the favourites including a big slippery dip, swings, lots to climb on and tunnels to crawl through. As the name of the park suggests, there is also a steamroller that the kids can climb on. The steamroller is actually a decommissioned diesel roller that has been painted and made safe for the kids.

The playground area is well fenced and outside of that is a substantial grassed area with a toilet block, a rotunda, BBQ facilities and some park benches.

The park is really well placed in Stirling as there are a number of cafes and shops to visit close by. For us, it is great that we can have a play in the park and burn off some energy and then head off and do the groceries or have a coffee after the kids have had some fun and are a bit more manageable!

The only downside to the park is that because it is well sheltered by some trees from the sun (but that is a bonus in summer), the park can be really cold in winter but that is nothing that an extra jumper won't fix.
