The Glade

I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

The more you explore The Glade the more you will discover, as the facilities are spread out in a long stretch so you can never appreciate them all at once. Most of them are located near Tanderra Street, where you'll also find the park's carpark.

This end is where you'll find a fenced playground. It's quite basic though, with some swings and an uninspiring equipment set.





Beside the playground are tables and a pair of tennis courts. If you want to play on the courts, your session needs to be booked in advance (click here).



This long line of facilities keeps on going to include a basketball half-court and batting cages.



Finally, as the ground evens out, the park opens up with an oval. It has a wicket in the middle (at least during summer, when cricket is played, thought soccer is the sport of choice during winter). There's also toilets around the edge.



Appropriately for a place called The Glade, there are trees everywhere here. But along one side, they are all lot denser and these ones make up The Glade Reserve, which is a space of critically endangered Blue Gum High Forest trees. These extend to Koora Avenue and beside them are some seats overlooking the oval. Paths provide access from the road down to the sports facilities.

Access to The Glade is also possible from Alda Avenue through The Glade Walk.
