The Joan Herraman reserve has a brand new playground, adjoining the Scout Hall on Sixth Avenue. With a child safe locked fence on the Sixth Ave side (the busy main road), but no fence on the quieter street on the opposite side of the park which isn’t too bad. 

Nature style playground with sand, slide, rope climb and water play, with lush beautiful grassed area for picnics or hurling the vortex around. Enough equipment to make the trip worth while and you will appreciate the slightly quieter area compared to busier spots.

It has just the one undercover area with seating and a nearby electric BBQ, but that’s probably more than enough for the size and it was free when we popped by for a play.
