Dinosaur Playground Kingsway
Updated: Feb 3, 2020
Tucked away in the middle of the Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex is the gorgeous Dinosaur Playground. A great way to entertain the little ones if your older kids have sporting commitments but also a fabulous playground to visit at any other time.
Named for it's large life size (baby) dinosaur this playground has a mix of sensory and nature play features making it ideal for younger children but also interesting for older kids to explore.
Shaded by lovely large trees year round this playground has toilets and picnic and barbecue facilities nearby.
There is a great little slide with a hill to climb.
There are musical play features and swings, including a bird's nest swing.
There are lots of log stepping stones low enough for toddlers.
There is a fabulous sand and water play area with dinosaur bones buried in the sand (take a bucket and spade to help your paleontologist). Dinosaur footprints on the pathways lead kids to the different parts of the playground.
The playground was so busy the day we visited I wasn't able to capture photos of all the areas as there were too many children and I prefer not to publish photos of children.
A short walk beyond the playground there are two lovely lakes (unfenced so watch the little ones!) with paved footpaths making them perfect for a short walk with the kids either on foot or on their scooters or bikes.
This playground can be combined with a visit to Landsdale Farm or a walk in Landsdale Park.
