Things to do
Here is one playground upgrade that will have youngsters buzzing with excitement. Stanley Street Reserve is a neighbourhood level playground that was upgraded in May 2021.
The reserve features a customised hexagon play piece with individual cubbies and bee-themed activities. There is a tunnel slide and children can crawl in and out of each cubby. There is a climbing rope and footholds for those keen to scale the beehive.
Bee stickers are hidden throughout the play area. Can you find all 100 of them?
Young entrepreneurs can practice playing queen bee at the playground honey shop complete with a wooden honey pot and timber seats.
There is a climbable bee sculpture and a table with a bee puzzle. Additional items include a spinner and log steppers along with a toddler and traditional swing set.
The hexagon theme is carried throughout the grounds with the shade, table, seats and planter boxes.
The upgrade has seen a barbeque and shade sail added. There is mulched and rubber softfall complemented by additional planting.
This reserve upgrade sits alongside the existing tennis courts leased by Stanley Street Tennis Club.
The barbeque is now at the northern end of the reserve. There is a mini soccer goal and permanent cricket wickets at the southern end.
The tennis courts are leased by the Stanley Street Tennis Club.
