Located at the end of Yamble Drive in Ocean Shores, this new community built children’s playscape is set within a scenic pocket of the neighbourhood; Water Lily Park. Surrounded by nature; with the picturesque pond- complete with lovely waterlilies – on one side and an expanse of parkland in front of it – it’s a gorgeous spot to take the little ones for a play.
I took my son one morning and he had a ball! Climbing the web netting, riding high on the web swing and the enormous timber see-saw! Oh, and did I mention the water pump!! Underneath the structure, there are also fun activities for the toddlers including spinning wheels and musical pipes.
There is also a considerable amount of adult exercise equipment located right next to the playground. The best way to describe it is an outdoor gym – you can see it in the background of the water pump image.
Other facilities located here include the local tennis courts, public toilets and a water bubbler which includes a lower spout and tray for your pet. However, it is worth noting that by law, dogs are prohibited within 10 metres of any playing apparatus provided in a public place for the use of children so if you are going to bring pooch along – don’t forget the leash!
Waterlily Playscape is an on-going project, supported by the community and crowd-funding. It has been made possible through a combination of donations and fundraising initiatives as well as the unflagging efforts of volunteers.
