posted in: Home Page, Life, Parks & Playgrounds | 0

Hold onto your hats mums and dads, this park is an absolute corker! West Epping Park underwent a major upgrade that was completed early 2018, with a spend to the tune of $10 million +, and now it’s even better still with the recent addition of a few shade sails!

The park has so much to offer – it really has something for everybody, including:

  • two playgrounds, one for older children and one for younger children
  • basketball court
  • mini skate park
  • ping pong tables
  • BBQ area with sheltered tables
  • synthetic sports oval for soccer and cricket
  • a public plaza space
  • a new amenities building (not yet finished)
  • water stations for humans and dogs!

 

 

As for the playground, there are 2 of them, one for older kids and one for younger kids.

The younger kids playground features:

  • a small side
  • a small spinning vortex
  • a car
  • a climbing structure
  • spinning flowers

The older kids playground features:

  • an epic slide access by a spider rope climb
  • 2 more long slides
  • large vortex
  • bucket swing
  • swings
