Flinders Parade Reserve in Newton is a nice little spot for those in the area who have little ones who love to ride around, but want a safe space to do it. With a great bitumen riding track complete with traffic signs and a few little routes to take, located on a quiet back street this is a good addition to the usual small backstreet playground set up. 

The playground right next to the track is a big modern set up with a couple of slides, some rope climbing and some cool little wheels for the little ones to spin and check out the patterns. A swing set and a big donut swing completes this small playground space, with shade only provided by the trees in the reserve. Sadly there are no real other facilities to give a shout out too, with no toilets, shade, BBQs or fencing to speak of. There is one little seating area to sit and watch the kids ride around the track, and there are also couple of logs that can kind of be used if needed.

This is a real quiet spot, tucked away away from all the noise so if you are in the area and the kids want somewhere new to ride their bikes around away from the roads, check this one out!

  • Where: Kooralla Grove, Kidman Park What a great little park this one is. With a fantastic range of play equipment, including some reasonably challenging climbing equipment to a playground with an enclosed twirly slide, this has something for most ages. It even has a heap of outdoor gym equipment but lets be honest, apart from sitting on the ski swingy one, nobody has ever used any of it....or is that just us? No toilets is the only let down here, but it has a BBQ, seating, a mix of toddler and traditional swings, several slides and is a really beautiful spot. There is no fencing but the river is about 100m away and it is in a nice quiet back street so you shouldn't have many issues.

  • This quaint little neighbourhood playground is nestled in the quiet suburb of Leabrook Fully fenced off park and whilst there is no shade provided the playground is situated under some beautiful big old gum trees that do provide some protection from the sun . There are also a few smaller trees around the edge off the grassed area that provide small amounts of shade for those wanting a small picnic space . This park is more suitable for toddlers and includes a swing set with a baby swing , small climbing ropes , slippery dip and my favourite is the big red truck that the kids can sit in and pretend to drive with the steering wheel . Unfortunately no toilets or BBQ facilities are located in this park Lovely little local playground . Phillip Ave Leabrook In need of a coffee the Leabrook Bakehouse and Patisserie is a short walk away on Glynburn Road .
