Brickmakers Park

Oct 12, 2021 | Playgrounds | 0 comments

Brickmakers Park doubles as a multi use public space, and a lesson in history.

The playground caters mostly to younger children with the usual offerings of swings, rockers, slides, and climbing structures. Look closely and you will see evidence of the brick making history cleverly incorporated into the playground. The playground is popular for its nest swing held upright by a massive red pencil!!
Close to the playground you‘ll find fabulous BBQ facilities including a large sheltered area with benches and tables. The public toilets are situated closer to the road where the parking lot is.

Away from the playground, you’ll see a lake in the distance. If you decide to wonder over to it via the walking track, you’re in for an exploration treat. The lake is surrounded by ferns, trees and shrubs and bird life. There’s a rotunda overlooking the lake that makes for a nice location to sit and take in the tranquility.

There is a large open space/lawn in the middle of the park which is ideal for kicking a footy and throwing a frizby. If shooting hoops is your idea of fun, there is a basketball half court too. Just note that these are on the opposite side of the field, away from the playground and BBQ area.

For the history enthusiasts like myself, you will certainly enjoy checking out the old brickmaking machinery and trollies located at the entrance of the park. They give you an idea of how things were made in the past.

Brickmakers Park is connected to the Scotchmans Creek Trail, making it a great stop over for lunch, or part of a scenic walk or bike ride.
