After a few years, the neighbourhood playground has become the norm, but to throw in a bit of excitement now and then, instead of the park across the road, I bring them to a new playground around the next suburb. Occasionally, we visit bigger play areas like Fagan Park and Bobbin Head,
Last year, we found the playground on steroids, the playground to rule them all ...Blaxland Riverside park. When we went there, it had a new water play area where little jets spray water every now and then, wetting kids who gleefully wait around to be sprayed. The water area isn't as impressive as the Darling Harbour one, but Number One and Two didn't seem to mind.
It has large green land, where you can set up a picnic or play your favourite sport. It was landscaped for this park, and has cute little green hills (to go rolling down?)
The playground equipment comes in extra large. Swings, giant nets,
...tunnel-type slides, which slide downhill
big spider nets, to climb to your heart's content;
a tower to get that bird's eye view of the park;
and rock climbing equipment for some vertical play.
