The Booran Reserve has been designed to ensure access for all ages and abilities. Colourful and gently sloped pathways allow intuitive movement and assist those with limited vision and mobility.

Harnesses on the five-way swing and double flying fox have been provided to give an immersive and shared experience. Softfall rubber pathways connect a range of play equipment, including Dutch disc spinner, birds nest swing and in-ground trampolines.

Smaller accessible paths weave and explore through shrubs, plantings and running water. The raised sandpit provides wheelchair access, and allows use of water spiral and mini sluice gate.
