Hooray! I took the twins to Speers Point playground and we had a fabby time!
It really is a magnificent play space. It’s just huge with all sorts of great play equipment.
And a cafe has just opened up. It’s called Sal’s and the number is 49081108.
We took lots of photos and I’ve put them together into a short but sweet video.
The best ideas for places to visit come from other parents, don’t you reckon? I heard about Speers Park playground from a comment on this blog.
I was totally delighted to find this lovely comment from Shane on my Putney Park Playground post.
“Just wanted to share NSW’s best park (well, in my opinion anyway). Newcastle has one that puts all Sydney parks to shame.
I went there last week and was blown away by the amount of things for kids to play in/on/around.
The park is at Speers Point on Lake Macquarie and last weekend had easily over 1000 kids playing at it when we were there.
It’s FREE, suits kids of all ages from 1 year olds to teens, and for the older kids has a 9m high slide!’
Here’s what the Lake Macquarie City Council website has to say:
‘The Lake Macquarie Variety Playground (LMVP) located in Speers Point Park on the northern shores of Lake Macquarie, NSW, is designed to cater for the needs of children of all ages and all abilities, to ensure that everyone can play and interact together.’
Have a look at the website here. There are heaps of photographs and all the information you need to know is there.
Nice website Lake Macquarie City Council, lovely playground too!
The happychild website has a good review of this playground by Carol Duncan, read it here.
The playground has its own Facebook page (wow!) here.
So, I feel like packing the kids in the car right now and driving the kids straight up there! It’s well worth a look if you’re up that way!
Have you been to this excellent playground?
Do you think there could be any better in NSW?
