For a fully fenced playground – this was a huge area – but not so big that you can’t see your kids at all times.

A great playground for toddlers to about 6-8 years old – but then the climbing frame and basketball ring could be good for those a bit older and as it is adjoining the local footy oval – plenty of room for bigger kids to kick around, fly a kite, run etc or even ride bikes around the outer oval track (think country footy oval)

What we love

  • Shades over MOST play equipment
  • Shaded BBQ and table area
  • Exercise Equipment

  • Two swings (toddler and normal)
  • Traditional monkey bars
  • Small-Medium Slippery Dip – we loved the proper steps with hand rails for toddlers
  • Huge Climbing Frame

  • Spinning pole
  • Paved paths perfect for learner scooters
  • Basketball ring with plenty of concrete and space to play
  • Soft astro turf under play gear (not sand or bark)
  • Well maintained / neat and tidy for its age apart from the piercing squeak from the swings –
  • The toilets are outside of fence, but very close by.
  • Ample parking – no walking

What could be better:

  • No accessible equipment
  • Opened in 2008 it is looking a bit tired and dated
  • Not a lot for older kids 6 – 8yo +

Virginia is home to some of our states best fresh produce – easy to do some local fruit and veg shopping while you are out this way and usually you are buying direct from the farmers, rather than the big supermarkets.

For us this play ground was only 5-10 minutes off of the Port Wakefield Road and was a much quieter easier alternative to stopping at St Kilda Playground, especially for little kids.

  • On the corner of Rogers Terrace and Robert St in Maitland there is a great combination playground. It boasts both the typical metal/plastic style playground with a large wooden climbing section. There is a spinning ride (although beware after rain as it fills with water), swings, a big slide, a digger and climbing equipment. It is surrounded by fence for most of the playground with just a small gap for entering (not secure). It has a car park, shaded seating, a free bbq, a double cricket pitch and it's just a short walk to nearby toilets.Fun for the whole family!

  • Yorketown Playground is absolutely massive and there is something for everyone. When you arrive you'll notice there's plenty of parking, there's an information booth for the area and some unique art around the place. Once you've parked you'll see a large playground area, a toilet block, a bbq with a shaded seating area and a short walk away, a big lake. We decided to check out the lake first and on our walk down there, discovered nature play spaces for climbing and exploring as well as many little creatures for children to take delight in. The lake is beautiful and there are walking paths you can take. Once back at the playground you will discover a Loch Ness Monster, flower photo booth, challenging play equipment for all ages and a stunning artwork of 2 rosellas. We stayed and played for well over an hour as it's perfect for kids and big kids (if you get my drift ;-))

  • It's a beautiful playground in such a quiet area. There is little traffic passing by and its enclosed. The playground is in good repair, clean and lots of fun for a range of ages. There is a bbq area with plenty of undercover seating, rubbish bins and a public toilet. The carpark is off the road and has plenty of space and there's even a wetlands walking track. Whilst there we noticed that previous families had taken chalk and done drawing on the brick pathways so that's another idea for keeping the children entertained. There is also a grassy area for ball play. It's definitely somewhere I'll be taking my family for a picnic in the future.
