Near the playground, you’ll find lots of flat space ideal for kicking a ball around or just running around. If your kids love trains, you’ll hear and see the trains going by as they pass Kotara Train Station.

The playground is on a busy road. There is a fence that separates the playground from the road but there is a space in the fence for access. Also, the playground is located close to the creek as pictured in the photo below so supervise your kids at all times.
