The playground design by Ku-ring-gai Council at Wahroonga Park has been carefully considered to provide an ideal play setting for toddlers and young children: themed play, musical equipment, active items and more in a beautiful park setting for the joy of children and carers.

Age Range: from 0.5 years
The new playground at Wahroonga Park has carefully considered the needs of young children and the comfort of carers. Themed play equipment encourages imaginative play whilst swings, a carousel and cable ride encourage active play. Musical equipment adds another play dimension, and the planting design and shade enhances the attractiveness of the setting.
There are three different play zones for different age groups of children. For the youngest children there is a train themed zone. This area provides an ideal play setting for toddlers who are still developing their physical, cognitive and social skills. The Little Train (J2607, J2608, J2609) excites the imagination of children and parents alike. The adjacent train platform complements the theme and features stepping bells, a custom transport puzzle board (custom J3401), and a Little Bench platform seat (J608) scaled just right for young children. A customised train station sign (custom J2884) has been added next to the Little Bench.
Physical skills can be developed on a toddler’s Tiboo slide (J3950), Chickies Springer (J846), Climbing Hut cubby house (J254) and Toddlers Swing set (J470). A seating wall forms the perimeter of the toddler play area and provides comfortable seating for carers to relax whilst remaining close to their young children. A large shade structure adds to comfort and safety of users in this area.
Keo the Shipwreck (J2750) features in another play zone designed for children from the age of four. The Keo inspires all kinds of nautical-themed imaginative games amongst children. A ship’s steering wheel, talking tube and portholes enhance the fun, whilst children can challenge each other on the rocking and rotating Rodeoboard (J3501) and Flipper play panel (J3405).
The Speed Gyro carousel (J2400) and Aerospeed cable ride (J2582) are in an active play zone that provides for more dynamic play amongst children and carers. A swing set for older children is located outside the fenced area of the playground.
