The Currie Barracks Airport Playground is eye catching and immediately inviting for imaginative play. There are lots of opportunities for swinging, spinning and bouncing as well.
Older kids might not find that there is enough to challenge them, but younger kids will love flying the planes and soaring down the big slide. Really small kids will enjoy moving easily around the accessible flooring, bouncing in the airplane bouncers and swinging on the swings.
The pour-in-place recycled tire flooring really enhances the feeling that you are at an airport.
Nature play area
The nature-like features are not extensive but provide a little variety to the playground. Unfortunately it does have pea gravel under it which can spread to other parts of the playground.
