Fee-fi-fo-fum, we see a playground, here we come! With splashes of colour and sploshes of fun, this Sydney playspace will leave a giant impression on little ones.
Opened in 2016, Wulaba Park covers more than 4,000 square metres of outdoor space in downtown Waterloo. Teens will be interested in the park’s handball and table tennis courts, however, it’s the colour explosion in the playground that will excite tykes!
Your kidlet will love skipping along the rainbow-coloured swirls on the soft-fall surface, before charging up, up, up into the fort and climbing tower to get a birds’ eye view of the colourful picket fencing below.
And when we say, ‘up, up, up’ we mean it! The play equipment here is incredible, with a multi-level tower that evokes Jack and the Beanstalk, and a super long slide for giant-sized fun.
Back on terra firma, there are tunnels to climb through, nets to hang off and different swings for different ages (including, of course, a GIANT basket swing).
For role-play and physical fun, there is the fantastic boat-like fort docked in the middle of the playground that will send imaginations of all ages soaring. Re-enactments of Peter Pan battling Hook and that time Grandpa Pig’s boat sank are just the start!
Apart from the shiny equipment and colourful everything, another fab thing about Wulaba Park is its nature play aspect. It’s a little oasis in the city, with rocks to hop, an open lawn for picnics and plants sprouting up on every side.
All in all, this playground inspires happy play for little people, so head to Waterloo for supersized, multi-coloured fun. And if you see an imaginary giant, then we’re pretty sure he’ll be a big, friendly one!
