I think I could live here
All sorts of opportunities to play.
I detoured to this park because I wanted to see what a Reflexology Walk is. I'm so glad I did because this park is a delight. I discovered that a Reflexology Walk is basically a bumpy path - albeit a very decorative path. It is paved with pebbles in various patterns and you walk across it to improve circulation in your feet. After the first few steps I thought "This doesn't seem to do any....Yow ... that hit a nerve or something!" So don't rush in to judge - give it a chance. I'd love one as my front garden path if only because it's so pretty.
Wouldn't it make a lovely garden path. Pretty and good for your feet.
There is some really interesting playground equipment and cool solar powered gizmos including a water feature, which I couldn't get to work and Mushrooms that shake.
Even the signs are works of art.
Solar powered moving mushrooms.
It took me a while to work out why one large piece of piece of equipment was fenced and locked. Apparently is is the Liberty Swing which is suitable for wheelchairs. You will need to obtain the key for the Liberty Swing from Red Hill Special School (Ph. 3291 9333) The park has wheelchair accessible toilet facilities and water fountains.
The Liberty Swing for wheelchair users..
The picnic tables are fabulous allowing you to eat off very large leafy works of art.
Eat off a leaf and your food will taste fresher.
There is so much to do - a bush track, a half basketball court but you don't actually need to DO anything just sit, relax and enjoy the combined beauty of nature and public art. Even the drain to the creek is attractive!
See... even pretty drain off.
Steps to the Bush Track.
You'll find the park behind Waterworks Road off Mossvale St. Ithaca Creek runs along the boundary.
I don't know what more you could want from a park. Ah, well a coffee van might improve it a little.
