Gilston Hall Park, Gilston

Gilston Hall Park is a very popular spot with the locals, and it’s easy to see why. This beautiful nature play park spread out over many levels will capture imaginations, encourage exploration and lead to many new adventures!

The top most level is home to the playground and a “campfire teepee”. Take the slide down to the second level, or follow the rock pathways to discover the swings and sandpit. There are many rock gullies and paths to explore as you make your way to the very bottom and jump on the flying fox!

Best catering for children aged 4 and over, there is still plenty to do here for those a bit younger with an imagination and a love of exploring. It was great to see the little ones balancing stones, collecting sticks and following the rocky pathways. This playground can get hot during the middle of the day, so come early for the best time. After school I’m also told it is very busy with all the school kids!

Facilities include a toilet block, small off road carpark and plenty of seating across the entire playground. There are big trees you can set up a picnic blanket under. Being spread over multiple levels this one isn’t pram or bike friendly.
