This playspace is located just off Quailo Avenue at Glade Crescent Reserve, Hallett Cove is a wonderful space for varying ages. We visited on the weekend with our 2-year-old and she loved it! From what we could tell, the playground is completed, but some of the landscaping at one end is still continuing- which meant there was also a truck and a digger to look at. #smallwins

  • Bucket swings x2
  • Standard baby swing
  • Train-designed play area

  • Fun climbing wall leading up to slides

Things to note:

  • There is plenty of parking along the street next to the playground, but no carpark
  • The Hallett Cove shopping centre is very close by
  • There is a wonderful cycling track right next to the playground if you have older kids
  • Most of the play equipment isn’t shaded, but there is shaded spaces to rest or place bags etc.
  • The sand pit is mostly shaded
  • The playground is NOT enclosed, but it has a bicycle path between it and the road. There are also some stretches with wooden fencing along it.
  • The flying fox is probably more suited to older kids, but one is higher/longer than the other
  • The slippery dips are quite steep and narrow, as is the climb up!
  • One of the slippery dips is shorter than the others so more suited to toddlers
