Nestled amongst the bushland at Craigburn Farm, this brand new adventure nature playground is a real winner and worth the drive. Essentially being a bit of a ninja/climbing course over rocks, poles and other naturey type objects, it is great for kids and parents to test out those hamstrings and the sore lower back.

It is a bit lacking in extra facilities like toilets, fencing and shade, but it is a stones throw from the epic Blackwood Treetop playground so it makes for a cool playground double header.

  • Where: 4 Fisher Crescent, Craigburn Farm The name says it all and YES it is a BIG slide. This playground is a hidden gem tucked away amongst houses in this quiet suburb but well worth a visit. This playground is FABULOUS to burn off some energy and it suitable for a few different ages . It is certainly for the more adventure orientated kids and due to the steep decline and NO fence you need to keep a close eye on the little ones all the time. Big Slide playground is located between 2 streets (Riding Way at the top and Fisher Cres at the bottom) and the play area has been cleverly designed around the steep terrain. At the top end of the play area is the toddler area so my advise would be to park here on Riding Way. It has a grassed area at this end along with a shaded picnic table. This area allows you to see across the entire play space but more importantly allows you to be right next to the little ones. The toddler equipment is great for imaginative play and is all on a soft squishy surface so helps if the little…

  • In the heart of Woodcroft Farm, this spot has lots of natural shade and if you enjoy a hit of tennis, then you are more than covered here! The playground could probably do with an equipment upgrade or so (it certainly has the space and it really would make it a fantastic attraction) but as it is, for the locals it is a nice destination for a walk and for the kids to have a run around. Seated shelter and plenty of parking, but no toilets or BBQ sadly for this one. More for the toddlers and young kids this one, with a couple of slides and swings pretty much covering all this one has to offer equipment wise. Personally, it is just a lovely relaxing spot and if you live nearby it is worth a look.

  • 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.
