I am involved with a community organisation and we are organising a family picnic day for disadvantaged kids in Canberra. We would normally go somewhere central like Weston Park or Black Mountain Peninsula where there is both playground equipment and BBQ’s. I recently took my kids to Weston Park where the ACT Govt has installed a ‘Spiders Web’ (a climbing frame for all you oldies) and a couple of new swings, however we were appalled by the old water play area that now has no running water but several stagnant pools of scum. Not really conducive to 2 year old play!
I have been to a park at Gungahlin where there are swings, flying foxes and a fantastic skate park to mention a few things. I have heard that there is an equivalent new park in Gordon. To save me a drive all over the ACT, does anybody have any suggestions about where the best park is?
