St John’s Memorial Park in Tingira Heights: Playground Next To A Fire Station

| |

There is a cute playground at St John’s Memorial Park in Tingira Heights, ideal for local families.

It’s especially great if your kids love fire engines as it’s located adjacent to the Fire and Rescue NSW station in Tingira Heights. Kids can spot the fire truck if the engine bay is open or if the fire truck is going in and out of the fire station.

St John’s Memorial Park is a small playground but has everything your kids need for a fun time at the park. It was refurbished in early 2021 so it’s nice and modern. There’s a play structure with stairs and a small double slide
