    The Park

    Berrima Street Reserve (Blue Bell Street Reserve) is located in the local streets of Heathcote. It’s close to bushland and takes on the calming feeling as a result.

    The main combination unit in the playground is terrific and offers play opportunities for children up to around 11 years old. It has a climbing wall, ladder with monkey bars, climbing net, fireman’s pole, steps, slide and shop front on the ground floor. The whole play space is covered in synthetic turf. Beware that it can get hot in the warmer months.

    There are other individual pieces of equipment next to the main unit including a single spinner, steppers and balance beam, double bay swing set (including basket swing), and see-saw.

    A concrete path runs around the perimeter of the play space with a gentle grade. It’s perfect for small bikes, scooters, rollerblades and skateboards.

    There’s also a generous kickabout space in the park, which is mostly on a slope.

    A picnic table sits at the top of the slope, overlooking the combination unit, which is a great spot to supervise from. There are also sandstone blocks aligned and stacked to form a wall around the perimeter of the play space that can be used as seating.

    There are two shade sails that cover the playground (one appeared to be out of action during our visit). These do a nice job of covering the playground (and synthetic turf), but some natural shade from trees would be welcomed. These would also improve the general amenity and support the bushland feel.

    The playground is set back from the adjacent local roads, and the park’s eastern side is fenced. But a level of supervision is always required.

    Highlights

    The climbing wall structure as part of the combination unit is a fantastic piece of equipment! It’s uncommon, challenges older (and capable younger) kids, and has lots of benefits for physical development and coordination.
