buchanan park, berwick

What a great improvement! The fences have been removed at Buchanan Park in Berwick and we raced down to test it out.

The design is a nice and fresh one for Mamma. A main structure with a tunnel sure looks cool, as well as the climbing net with wobbly balance thingos underneath. The climbing hand holds are cactus shaped and there is plenty of little things for the little ones at ground level. There’s a swinging sea-saw, a spinning round-about and a swing frame with two - yes TWO - toddler swings!

Our little guy couldn’t get up the main structure, no matter how much he tried on the ladders, but it is a little narrow up there, so keeping his little legs on solid ground is fine by this Mamma. The original playground is still here on the other side of the skate park so there is still fun to be had for the toddlers AND the big kids.

Mamma's special mention: Coffee I hear you ask? Head to Little By Little just on the other side of the railway line.

the nitty gritty

off street parking - picnic shelters and seating - walking trails nearby - skate park - water hazard - bbqs - close to train station - heaps of green space for ball games
