Brampton Park in Butler is nestled next to a manmade lake which has lots of ducks and birds and big rocks amongst some shallow parts of the lake for the kids to climb on (you just need to remind them to be careful as some are slippery as our Mister 5 fell in).
There is plenty of grass and open space to run around and there are also paths that meander around the park so it’s great for the kids to bring their scooter or bike. There are also some benches if you want to bring a picnic. However, there are no toilets unless you walk to the local DOME Coffee which is the top end of the park.
Brampton Park consists of one large playground at the park and one smaller one. The large playground has plenty to keep the kids occupied.
One side of the playground backs onto the lake and is fenced but it is not fully enclosed so you will need to keep a close eye on little ones so they are not enticed by the water.
It has two slides, climbing nets, frames, and rocking horses. There is also a large circular swing and another with a pyramid climbing net.
On the other side of the playground is a seated flying fox/pulley swing over a large sand area that the kids have great fun on as they can easily push themselves back and forth.
There are also some sand toys.
A recent addition to this park is the boating lake. Take the kids for a pedal boat around the man-made lake and enjoy the tranquil park views. It’s $15 for 30minutes. Life-Saving vests are supplied and there’s a maximum of 4 people per boat allowed.
There’s certainly lots to keep the kids entertained and as a bonus, it’s right next to a DOME Cafe.
Brampton Park is located at Brampton Avenue, Butler.
