The Hallstrom Park in Bicentennial Reserve located on Small Street in Willoughby recently undertook large renovations and is now open to the public.
The playground now features new furniture and equipment including a turtle dome climber (which little Miss loved climbing all over and sitting on the top of), a large basket swing and a sandpit in one spot.
And an embankment slide, climbing ropes, four swings (for babies and older kids), a fort structure, a carousel, a see-saw and percussion drums near the entrance.
There is a gazebo which is perfect for picnics or parties which has nearby toilets, drink bubblers and a small water area with a water pump.
The Bicentennial Reserve also has some interesting sculptures made of iron and stone which is great for kids to explore as well as a nearby oval and great walking and cycling paths so don't forget to bring the kids scooters and bikes for a spin. A great playground overall however I would have liked some areas for babies and crawlers to play in.
There is nearby parking off Small Street as well as the Incinerator Café and Incinerator Art Space where you can grab a coffee, breakfast or lunch and explore their art space. There is also parking available at the nearby Willoughby Leisure Centre as well as another small playground near the centre's car park.
