Park Ponderings

On Tuesday afternoon we decided to go to Kesterton Park  purely because I was getting bored with the zoo. We go to the zoo at least twice a week so you can’t say I don’t get value for money from my pass.  I also felt like having a little sit down instead of chasing two preschoolers up and down vale and fielding 101 animal questions about 101 animal topics, that I can’t answer.

So I took some snapshots of Kesterton Park. There will be a whole pile of parents out there that are cross with me for divulging one of the Lower North Shores best kept secrets. We love this park. It is cool in the summer afternoons and warm in the winter mornings.  Best points as follows but I think the photos tell it for themselves.

  • parking
  • rubbish bin
  • toilets
  • four seater seesaw (perfect for two sets of twins)
  • alphabet and counting play
  • two swings
  • soft rubber fall
  • climbing frame suitable for 3-7 year olds
  • park benches for parents
  • fully fenced
  • and last but not least the gorgeous view of Neutral Bay

  1. It’s always nice to have a relaxing day at the park … good for everyone’s sanity, the kids’ and mine.

  2. We love the park, go to a different one every day it seems! Yours looked like a great one though, too bad we do not live so close! 😉

  3. A few thousand miles disparage in distance! New parks are always on my radar.
