There is a new playground at Kotara Park for families to visit. Opened this week, this playground is ideal for the under 6 set.
It’s not a massive playground, but this colourful neighbourhood playground has plenty to keep kids occupied for a fun play.
The main structure is a fort with double slide, fireman’s pole, rope climbing wall and rope climbing structure.
Nearby is a balancing beam and half circle.
There’s a toddler swing and regular swing as well as group swing.
There’s also a roundabout and see saw.
There’s a brightly climbing block that is popular with the kids.
The play equipment best suits kids aged 0 – 8 years and the playground surfacing is a combination of shredded bark and softfall flooring.
Near the play equipment, there is a large covered picnic area.
There is also plenty of seating on the sandstone blocks that surround the playground.
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.
