Centennial Parklands, Playgrounds & Bike Tracks
There are some fantastic playgrounds within the fabulous Centennial Parklands for the under 5’s
Cafe Playground: This is a wonderful playground located slap bang in the middle of the park, it’s ideally located near to the Kiosk and café facilities which guarantees it’s daily popularity, but you’ll never feel hemmed in here because it’s opens on to the acres of beautiful lush green playing fields.
The equipment is varied and fun and has more to offer than your average park its got a great sandpit, cubby house, a giant guiros, hug me poles, balancing bars, a water feature, turtle sculptures to climb on and we particularly love the fabulous little bells embedded into the decking that toddlers just love stamping on. Well shaded, with lots of spots round the edge to sit and sip your coffee while the kids have fun. Recommended.
