The gated playground with softfall rubber flooring features fantastic play equipment for kids of all ages including three sets of swings, xylophone, flying fox, batwing carousel and toadstools.
There’s also a climbing structure complete with steps, slides and rock wall. As the park is an all abilities playground, the play equipment includes special seats on the flying fox and batwing carousel as well as a liberty swing for wheelchair users.
The playground is beautifully landscaped with natives and well shaded with trees and sail shades. Music equipment are grouped together for budding musos. Kids will love banging on the xylophone.There’s ample seating available with benches and picnic tables within the playground making it a perfect spot for picnics.
After you’ve finished at the playground, have a stroll around Maitland park. There’s plenty of room to kick a ball around or just relax and enjoy nature. Among the park, you’ll find war memorials.
