Highett Reserve Playground, Turner Road, Highett




This playground has had a major upgrade. It now boasts a significant size wooden castle with walls composed of slats of wood with gaps between the slats - a bit like peeking into a castle through open curtains!

The castle has a big slide with bumps rather than waves, small but steep wave slide, ladder, two fireman's poles and a large inclined climbing wall with nice big handholds. There is also access to the top of castle via steps but no ramp access. A soft but firm path leads across the woodchips to the steps.

There are a few super elements to the playground. There is a great see-saw like a huge inverted V with seats at the ends of the V. This moves in all directions - up, down, around and at an angle. There is huge opportunity for some great (but scary) fun on this.

There is also a birds nest swing. Plenty of areas for balancers with a line of wooden stumps to traverse and a rock wall. Three swings including one with harness. Separate small monkey bars. Under a huge shady tree are colourful toadstools, see-saw and wooden carvings including a python and green frog.

Some of the playground receives shade from trees. Shaded tables and seat plus a shelter with BBQs and tables. Water taps. Basketball court. Next to huge expanse of ovals.

Took my 17 month old here today- lots of fun learning to climb, see saw, swings, peek a boo in the castle, bouncing a ball on the basketball court and playing around the wooden figures under the big tree

Major upgrade?! When was the last time you visited that park? There is nothing there for small kids at all! I live near by and have a 14mo toddler... And we are struggling to find things to do. The widen castle doesn't offer anything at all except for slides? Take a look at a play ground in Halley park! It's fantastic! How about another major upgrade?
