Want a farming experience?
Located within the Stoneleigh Reserve Estate (Stoneleigh Reserve Boulevard, Logan Reserve), this park offers a farm-themed experience without leaving the city!

Visitors are greeted by a large artificial wetland surrounded by open spaces, a farm-themed play and eating area, orchard, bike paths and exercise machinery.

This playground differs from most, as the only traditional play equipment is a double swing set with toddler seat. Rather, the focus of this park is to provide visitors and residents of the estate with a large outdoor recreational space for imaginative play.

Younger children will be delighted by a mock farm enclosure featuring a water tower structure, resident cow and chicken statues, stepping stones and wooden corrals. The fencing is adorned with authentic looking wooden wagon wheels and a stunning large fig tree shelters the area.

To further engage children in the farming experience, a notice board gives instructions for a themed scavenger hunt. Silhouettes of various farm animals/equipment are supplied and children are to find these shapes hidden nearby. A farm-themed word search is painted on a pathway for older children to attempt.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy an roaming through the orchard, boasting several rows of young but established fruit trees.

A gazebo with table, chairs and a BBQ is conveniently positioned between the orchard and farm enclosure, allowing parents to relax whilst actively supervising children.

A bike path runs the entirety of the wetland area with exercise equipment and football fields located on the other side.
