In the heart of Cooks Hill, Centennial Park is not to be missed. With its large grassy surrounds and modern playground, it’s a top spot to take the kids.
There’s lots of climbing equipment, a fort with slides, see saw, swings (including a toddler swing, regular swing and a group swing), spinner and a balancing thing.
If you have children who love to balance and climb, there’s climbing equipment and a balancing feature.
With the nearby rotunda and large grassy area, Centennial Park is a great place for birthday parties, play dates or just a day at the park.
Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy the rotunda. It’s a versatile spot to eat lunch, ride bikes or scooters or relax with a story time session.
All of that grass surrounding the rotunda means that there’s plenty of room to play soccer, cricket, footy or run relays. The park is full of Norfolk pines and fig trees providing plenty of shade and also great hiding spots for hide and seek.
