This playground has been around for a while now but somehow we had never been out to visit! It's a great concept, the lifecycle of a butterfly told through sculptures and equipment. There is a big caterpillar that's also a tunnel, butterflies up in the sky on poles, a huge butterfly shaped shade structure, lots of leaf sculptures to climb on and hide under and that's without mentioning the actual playground. Care has been put into the landscaping and, while we can't guarantee anything,many real life butterflies were around for a play with us.
There are more swings than you can point a hungry caterpillar at and the main playground has slides, a shop, monkey rings, a flying fox and plenty to climb. A small basketball area is also included.
Free on street parking, shade, tables and benches. No toilets.
