  • Ridge Park Byford is located within the beautiful estate of Byford on the Scarp, expanding over a 1.7ha area it includes two separate playgrounds, including a newly built nature playground surrounded by mature trees… giving you the feeling of being in the country when you’re still in the suburbs!

    The first playground we visited is perfect for younger kids, featuring train-themed equipment, each carriage of the train offers different imaginative play experiences.

    In the first section, toddlers can pretend they are driving the train or crawl through the small tunnel.

    The second carriage is a passenger car. The third carriage dubbed the ‘circus car’ has a range of fun sensory activities.

    The playground also includes a small climbing structure with a slide, with assistance, my 2 year old could make his way to the top up the swinging steps. My 7 year old enjoyed the challenge of climbing the net. There is also a small rockclimbing wall and tunnel.

    My 7 year old and her friend ran straight for the double flying fox, the girls had a great time racing each to the end. Featuring one pommel seat and one all-abilities harness seat, my toddler was even able to have a turn.

    Ridge Park Byford has a wooden lookout structure with a rope net, ladder and rock climbing wall – the handles are in the shapes of different animals (cute). There isn’t a lot to do at the top, but the girls enjoyed climbing to the top and sliding down the fireman’s pole.
