    Parklake Park, Maudsland

    Parklake Park at Maudsland can't be seen from the street, and so many people are surprised once they make their way down to it at how big the playground is! This playground caters well to kids of all ages, with two separate play structures and lots much more to discover. Set under lots of shady trees, plus a few shade cloth structures, you'll find a mega slide, toddler playground, flying fox, swings, huge sandpit and lots of imaginative play elements.
