Leslie Patrick Park | Arana Hills

Leslie Patrick Park in Arana Hills is the perfect place to bring the kids for a fun day out. Situated among gardens and lots of shady trees, this fenced playground will be sure to entertain kids of all ages.

Uniquely designed play equipment

The swirly, curly design of Leslie Patrick Park playground makes it a fun and interesting place for kids to let their imaginations go wild. There is a climbing apparatus situated in the middle of the playground, perfect for eager little climbers. The carefully placed obstacles provide different difficulty levels so all children can have a go.

Another feature of this playground is a variety of different spinners. Popular with all children, these spinners range from small enough for one to big enough for four or five littlies. Since the playground is sand-based, you can spin the kids to their heart’s delight knowing that in the unlikely event of a fall, there’ll be soft sand below! Kids love sand play even when they’re far from the beach! A little digger can be found in the playground for scooping up sand. Or bring your own bucket and spade!
