Halliday Park, Mitcham Road, Mitcham




The playground received a super upgrade in 2014 but still retains its signature of great flying foxes.

The playground is based around some spreading oak trees which provides some shade around the colourful play equipment for younger kids. This structure is low to the ground and has a slide, ladders, climbing tunnel, little archway, steering wheel, clanger to hit against pipes, shop front, abacus and clock. Beside this structure is a red koala (looks like its afflicted with a touch of sunburn), stepping stones, see-saw, four swings (including one with a harness), a wooden hut frame with musical buttons on the floor and some logs with creatures encased in the surface (look around the playground closely because there are quite a few of these).

A path leads past a lazy hammock, a sit-on carousel which is very easy to spin (ideal for idle parents who want to minimise their exertions), in-ground trampoline (which made sounds when I jumped - either because it is designed to emit sounds or was creaking under Dad's weight), a big curved half-circle frame where you stand on a little platform and try and move your legs to the left or right while holding onto a hanging chain (= an accident waiting to happen), a huge birds nest swing (although a bigger sized basket would enable more kids to enjoy the ride), two flying foxes (one with a harness and one with a disk seat), big atom shaped rope climbing frame, hillock with climbing bumps on one side to help little kids reach the top and a small slide on the other side to get down plus a water feature with pump, water channel and two sluice gates.

The playground is well landscaped with natural features and caters for All Abilities with paths to all play equipment. There are plenty of shaded and unshaded seats scattered about the playground area, lots of shaded and unshaded tables and BBQs, water tap, toilets, huge shelter with seats and big grassy areas. Access to the playground is via the lane next to the Bowling Club.

Great place: only issue is the flying fox which had the incorrect seat and can cause whip lash

A fantastic sensory park with huge variety, enough shaded areas and a great bbq area. Can draw quite a crowd though leading to lines for the basket swing and flying fox. Would benefit from more toilets.

Went here for a birthday party yesterday. Was a great park for different aged kids. My 2 year old had an absolute ball!
