Do you believe the truth is out there?
This awesome space-themed park has an even more awesome back story.
On the 6th April in 1966, students and teachers from Westall school's, reportedly saw an 'unidentified flying object' hovering above the trees. It is said to have landed in the tall pine trees of what is now grange reserve, for 20 minutes before taking off at speed.
If you read the quotes that are spread around the park, allegedly army trucks appeared not long after and investigated the scene. Yet curiously, the event was barely covered in the next day's media. Intriguing, right?
Well - so is this reserve! There is SO much to do and see here, you will literally spend hours investigating.
Of course, the hero of the park is the giant UFO. Complete will bouncy springs, jet engines, and two slides to disembark on. You can even pretend you are the pilot!
There are also all your usual play equipment; swings, flying fox, sandpit, digger, climbing wall, dizzy spinning wheel, wooden tree house - and lots more!
There's also picnic tables and free BBQ facilities making it the perfect picnic outing. With huge pine trees (hello pine cone hunting!) and bush surroundings, there is so much to explore. Don't forget to keep your eyes out for UFO's!
