Dinosaur Playground and Water Play - Kingsway

Updated: Jun 17

Updated Jan 2023

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 climbable (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. The splashes of colour on the logs and other play features are to assist children with a vision impairment and there is a braille alphabet.

There is a great little slide with a hill to climb.

There are musical play features and swings, including a bird's nest swing.

Go on an adventure through the gardens on the log stepping stone trail which is low enough for toddlers to access...take the sand path winding through the long grass... or follow the dinosaur footprints...

There is a fabulous sand and water play area with dinosaur bones buried in the sand (take a bucket and spade to help your palaeontologist). 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.

The Dinosaur playground is partially fenced (along the road).

The fully fenced Water Park feature is open daily from 8am to 7pm between October and April each year. Water features can be activated for 10-minute intervals via a push button located on the left side of the gate. The water play is zero depth and the kids will love being sprayed by dinosaurs and trees and the surprise of the the tipping bucket.

There is also a large traditional playground and exercise equipment located here so this play space is 4 for the price of 1 and should keep everyone happy!

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.

The playgrounds are all shaded by lovely large trees year round and there are toilets, picnic and barbecue facilities. There is a lot of parking available but if sporting fixtures are being played on the surrounding playing fields parking can be very hard to find.

This playground can be combined with a visit to Landsdale Farm or a wildflower walk in Landsdale Park.
