Here’s a great play area in the Northern suburbs that you could quite easily spend hours at. There’s plenty of spots to utilise including a playground, large grassed area, picnic shelter and the wetlands themselves complete with a nice flat walking track.

The playground area has equipment for all ages, providing fun for the whole family. Equipment includes lots of different climbing walls and poles, a climbing net and a great climbing cube perfect for little ninjas. There’s also monkey bars, seesaw and rockers, slides, spinner and various swings.
There are BBQ’s, toilets and plenty of seating.

The 1.4 km track around the wetlands is great for walking, prams, bike riding, dog walking and it’s also wheelchair accessible. There’s plenty of ducks to see. Just remember not to feed them, or if you really have to make sure you feed them something from the below list.

The best access is from Douglas Drive and there’s car parks off the road. Not fenced.

  • On the corner of Rogers Terrace and Robert St in Maitland there is a great combination playground. It boasts both the typical metal/plastic style playground with a large wooden climbing section. There is a spinning ride (although beware after rain as it fills with water), swings, a big slide, a digger and climbing equipment. It is surrounded by fence for most of the playground with just a small gap for entering (not secure). It has a car park, shaded seating, a free bbq, a double cricket pitch and it's just a short walk to nearby toilets.Fun for the whole family!

  • It's a beautiful playground in such a quiet area. There is little traffic passing by and its enclosed. The playground is in good repair, clean and lots of fun for a range of ages. There is a bbq area with plenty of undercover seating, rubbish bins and a public toilet. The carpark is off the road and has plenty of space and there's even a wetlands walking track. Whilst there we noticed that previous families had taken chalk and done drawing on the brick pathways so that's another idea for keeping the children entertained. There is also a grassy area for ball play. It's definitely somewhere I'll be taking my family for a picnic in the future.

  • Yorketown Playground is absolutely massive and there is something for everyone. When you arrive you'll notice there's plenty of parking, there's an information booth for the area and some unique art around the place. Once you've parked you'll see a large playground area, a toilet block, a bbq with a shaded seating area and a short walk away, a big lake. We decided to check out the lake first and on our walk down there, discovered nature play spaces for climbing and exploring as well as many little creatures for children to take delight in. The lake is beautiful and there are walking paths you can take. Once back at the playground you will discover a Loch Ness Monster, flower photo booth, challenging play equipment for all ages and a stunning artwork of 2 rosellas. We stayed and played for well over an hour as it's perfect for kids and big kids (if you get my drift ;-))
