“Grandparents' Delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We live in the Lake Macquarie area but have travelled extensively and I rate this park as one the best children's playgrounds I have seen. The surroundings are beautiful, with plenty of space for picnics or simply for children to run. There is a coffee shop for parents to buy snacks for the chidren or coffee for themselves. The Speers Point swimming pool is located close to the childrens' recreation area and beautiful Lake Macquarie provides the backdrop for all the activities. We have taken all our grandchildren to this park and we all enjoy the experience.An added bonus is the fact that it is possible to entertain the children entirely free of cost .

“Kids Love It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

This playground would be undoubtably the best I have ever seen. My kids just love the place, & I have never seen a child in the place without a smile on their face, or sitting around looking bored.
Lake Macquarie City Council deserve to be congratulated for the foresight of designing such a wonderful area for children.

“Best children's playground in NSW & Lake Macquarie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

One of the best children's playgrounds I've seen in NSW is in Lake Macquarie (2hrs north of Sydney & 20 minutes south of Newcastle). It was completed in 2008 and has won many awards. But the best judge of the park is the kids. Kids from as soon as they can walk to teenagers can enjoy the park.

It has as water play area, jungle climbing castle, musical makers and sand pits for younger kids on one area. The next more sand pit and climbing frames plus a huge twisty slide and climbing net that is most popular with older kids.

The flying fox is a big favourate for all aged kids and the bike track complete with stop signs a must for teaching kids how to ride safely.

BBQs, toilets and cafe facility also next to complex. Public swimming pool only a short walk away.
