  • Where: Malwa Street, Glandore The fabulous playground at the Glandore Community Centre is now open and we think it looks sensational! The highlight of course is the huge 'birdcage' climbing structure which leads into a great tube slide, which is big enough to keep the older kids entertained but also is just right for the brave younger ones to try. There is a 3 on 3 basketball court, and a table tennis table plus plenty of lawned area's including a mini soccer pitch (perfect spot to pack the car with ALL the balls). We loved the little pump track for the smaller crew to ride and scoot around, plus the artwork scattered around adds a really nice touch to a very well put together facility for the community. Parents will enjoy the seating, as well as the natural shade from the mature trees in the park, and there is a small fence that offers some barrier between the playground and the road. It is only a relatively quiet side street however, so it is in a good spot for a bit of peace and quiet well away from busy South Road. Toilets can be found in the adjoining Community Centre.
