Expect to be impressed by all that Tim Neville Arboretum has to offer. It is a fully equipped wonderland to keep you and the little ones busy for hours.
Our adventure here began with the medieval themed playground of course.
At the top end of the playground is a fort equipped with its very own drawbridge lowered over a moat. The moat is surfaced with blue rubber (emulating water) and has a friendly dragon protruding it’s head and tail to complete the scene.
The playground features so much variety including a flying fox, swings, multiple sandpits and slides, as well as a rope climbing obstacle and a second dragon (located at the bottom end).
You’ll find plates incorporating brail and sign language throughout the park , which is fantastic in terms of inclusivity, and a great way to introduce children to the use of their senses to explore the world.
As we exited the gated playground, we passed the war memorial to our right and made our way over to the wetlands to enjoy the local bird life from the viewing platforms.
You’ll additionally enjoy the parks very own amphitheatre, to bring home the ancient Rome feel.
However our most favourite space within the reserve was the bamboo garden. Almaas loved its relaxing aura while she played with leaves and sticks.
Parking is plentiful, despite it getting busy on weekends. The toilet facilities and sheltered seating and BBQ amenities make this reserve a perfect spot for any occasion. There are countless spots to lay down a blanket and have a picnic too. And better yet, dogs are permitted, albeit on leash.
