OPTUS STADIUM SENSORY PLAYGROUND – Smack in between the Camfield and the new bridge at Stadium park at Optus Stadium you will find a fully fenced sensory playground.
This is a very well thought out, fun park! The first things my girls ran towards were the big rope climbing frame and the slide. The entrance to the slide is at the top of a “soft fall” hill – this meant getting to the slide was a good challenge for the little kids as they had to work out the best way up. It was interesting to watch so many attempt a steep spot and then reassess and try another section.
There’s a musical section and the biggest hit was a box that plays music when it’s jumped on. Kids were lining up to have a go at jumping on it to see if they could get it to play.
There’s a flying fox with double wires – one with a traditional round seat and the other with a full, high backed, seat with a harness. Both my girls loved sitting in the full seat and flying along! As soon as they had a turn they were lining up again.
Also super popular were the in ground trampolines and the round-about.
A great feature, that I haven’t seen anywhere else before, is a speaker that is operated by foot pump. Once you start pumping the pedal, the speaker plays music and initiates games (for example: it was saying can you stand on one leg, how many green things can you find, can you do a pirouette… etc). This added an extra element of fun to our morning.
Other features of the park include a basketball court and hoop, a swing, and a sandpit with diggers.
There are a couple of gazebos and bbqs within the fenced park, some additional bench seating and a grassed area where people were having picnics. There are water fountains around the park and toilets nearby, just outside the fenced area. There currently isn’t a great deal of shade. Today was a warm day and additional shading really was needed.
This is a great park to spend a fair few hours at, or take along your scooters and bikes and check out all the parks and artwork around Chevon Parkland and stadium park.
