It is a great relief to be able to take our kids back to the local parks. Here are five playgrounds in Kyneton and the surrounding towns that your children will love to rediscover.
Kyneton on Riverside Park: Kyneton’s newest playground sits on the hill overlooking Kyneton on Riverside. It has something for kids of all ages: swings and slides of different sizes, and plenty of places to climb, run and kick a ball. There are BBQ facilities, shelter and lots of spots to sit and enjoy the view.
Kyneton Community Park: Backing onto the beautiful Kyneton Botanic Gardens is this gorgeous park. It is peppered with bright colours in the form of tractors and a tyre tunnel, not to mention the beautiful flowers when they are in bloom. There is a waterplay area which operates in the warmer months, a ropes course, table tennis table and the regular playground fare, with not a piece of plastic in sight.
Jean Haynes Playground: Whilst the Community Park is beautiful for its expanse, this playground is perfect for those with little ones who wander. The park is fully fenced but is still large, with slides, swings and a gorgeous brightly coloured train that the kids can hop into. It is conveniently right next to the Visitor Information Centre and public toilets.
Taradale Mineral Springs Playground: Set within the grounds of the Nature Reserve and an easy drive from Kyneton is this pretty park. There is a variety of equipment, including: a flying fox, big tyre swing and climbing walls, as well as plenty of shade, tables and grassy areas.
Woodend Children’s Park: Another short drive away is this delightful, colorful playground. The park stretches across the landscape and has various play areas, including one that is fenced. There is a flying fox, a lookout and musical instruments to play.
