There is a new playground at St John’s Memorial Park, ideal for local families.
It’s especially great if your kids love fire engines as it’s located adjacent to the Tingira Heights Fire Station. Kids can spot the fire truck if the engine bay is open or if the fire truck is going in and out of the station.
St John’s Memorial Park is a small playground but has everything your kids need for a fun time at the park. There’s a play structure with stairs and a small double slide
There’s two swings, a regular swing and a baby swing.
For kids who like to climb, there’s a stucture that includes a rope climbing wall, climbing ladder and balancing pods.
It even has a lime firefighter’s pole, so they can copy the firefighters next door.
You’ll also find a bright lime see saw see saw.
Musical kids can bang away on the park xylophone to the heart’s content.
For flooring, it’s a combination of softfall paths and bark chips.
Parents can sit around the playground on one of the picnic benches or sit on the sandstone blocks that surround the playground.
If you need coffee or snacks or need a toilet, head to Lake Macquarie Fair in Mount Hutton. It’s a short 3 minute drive.
