“Not suitable for all children”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Having an autistic child I tend to avoid this play area as it is not fenced in and is right next to a busy road, it's not possible to sit and relax while my son plays. Also there is no traditional slide or swings in the play area and the majority of the equipment relies heavily on the childs climbing skills which is another problem for my son. It's a real shame as it's only a ten minute walk from home, I'm sure the geo park is perfect for an average child with no disabilities but we will be sticking to the Victoria park playground.

Its FREE. Great for mums and dads on budgets. This is a super young kids' play park with a theme. The best free facility I have seen anywhere.

“A fun place to play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My two daughters (5 and 7) enjoyed the hour or so we spent here despite the wet weather. Its basically a play park nice and close to the beach.

The equipment is in very good condition and very innovative in its construction.

My eldest got a wet bum on the slide but this proved to be a bit of a highlight for her!?
