Things to do
Calling all knights, princes
and princesses. Peterson Avenue Reserve has gone medieval and boasts a 'sword
in the stone' for worthy future kings and queens. Peterson's Castle offers rest
and respite from play complete with a slide exit. Careful, a dragon may
lurk in the cubby at Lutana's Keep. There is a handy archery target
practice before you set off on your adventures. It is said there is
treasure to be found at this reserve. A stop at the wishing well may help you
on your journey.
Peterson Avenue Reserve was upgraded in June 2022. The new look playground features:
- A play castle with a slide and spin bar
- A themed castle cubby
- A scooter track with mounds
- Target practice
- A wishing well with a bucket and chain
- Two wooden treasure chests
- A map of the reserve
- Sword in the stone
There is a shaded seating area called 'Alawoona Village' for picnics or general relaxation.
The play elements and amenities are complemented by established trees and lush grassed areas.
Peterson Avenue Reserve in Mitchell Park is a local playground.
It is nestled in the back streets, with low height fencing so it's ideal to bring small children.
There's a small multistation with a choice of stairs or climbing net to get to the slide. Monkey bars are situated next to it.
A shelter with small picnic table and bench seat under shady trees provide space to relax or have a picnic on the grass.
There's a tap near the entrance sign if you need to fill your water bottle.
