Faulkner Park Belmont
Where are we going today?
Faulkner Park playground caters for all of the family and incorporates numerous methods of play including water play, flying play, sand play, theme play and a toddler playground.
There is fairly unique elemental play on offer in the form of the misters and foggers which add atmosphere to the volcano village theme, as well as water 'jewels' which must be caught, all of which is generated at random.
Other standout features include disabled access flying fox cableway, sand excavating toys, and a shipwreck with 3D animals.
The toddlers only zone includes Spica, Spinning bowl, Cubbyhouse, Ship with water-ski, binoculars, megaphones and mini slide.
There is also a skate park at one end with a half pipe linked by an eight foot spine to a quarter pipe, grind rails and roll-ins and is suitable for bikes, scooters, rollerblades and skateboards.
