There’s new playground equipment in Laneway Park (also known as Fletcher Park) in Adamstown. This cute little neighbourhood park has been revamped with new play equipment and a covered picnic shelter and is perfect for those with babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
It features timber play equipment comprising of a small slide, climbing net and bridge.
There’s swings (regular and baby), small play equipment and a couple of wobblies.
There’s also a fun sand pit where kids can play with the sand and use the digger to scoop and dump sand.
It’s a lovely peaceful spot between houses with lots of lawn and trees. It’s a perfect spot to kick around a ball or have a picnic.
There has been a fantastic community effort to make this into a wonderful place for families.
Locals have set up a community garden at the rear of the park so wander by and show your kids the plants that grow there.
