Fairfield Adventure Park
Fairfield Adventure Park is situated in Fairfield, Sydney next to the Fairfield Community Centre and Fairfield Leisure Centre. Fairfield city council and leaders in the industry have come together to establish something special for the local community. The park was opened in April 2015 and was designed by KOMPAN, the world’s No. 1 playground supplier.
The playground is very unique and has been developed for teenagers and for older children.
The playground features some excellent equipment including a giant 11 meter climbing net, a sky bridge and 3 huge slides which in fact is the tallest slides in Australia. The climbing net at the park is very advanced and challenging as it requires a lot of concentration and strength to move up and gives a lot of benefits to posture and movement for kids and grownups exploring the 3 dimensional spaces. The structure has so many slides and the kids can go in many different directions using the sky bridge. The kids feel a sense of achievement climbing the net and to be rewarded with the ride down the slide is awesome. To see the kids smiling faces is priceless and they want to do it again and again. The equipment at this park makes it different from many of the other parks in Sydney that I’ve seen making it worthwhile to visit again.
Apart from the climbing net there is heaps of other cool stuff too. There is a 33 meter long flying fox, kid’s trampoline, huge swings. Younger kids have plenty of space to enjoy too with play equipment catered for the littlies too.
It’s simply a great day out for the family and friends and even features table tennis, barbeques and picnic areas.
There is a huge field great for playing cricket or soccer. The cockatoos even come to say hello and the rangers allow you to pat one.
Understanding The Background Of Fairfield Adventure Park
The Fairfield city council’s vision was to create a youth facility in the local area to try and create a better place for families by providing better facilities for the Fairfield communities. Having an established youth center meant a lot to the Fairfield city, a place where there is youth unemployment.
Fairfield city council were excited to receive funding and used the money towards building a new Youth and Community Center and Fairfield Adventure park making this one of the greatest places in Fairfield and the Sydney region as a whole for young families.
Having the Youth center and the Adventure park coexisting together has provided a better future to a lot of the young children in Fairfield and has created a central place for families to meet.
The Fairfield Youth and Community Center was officially opened on 9 October 2015. The center is used to host a variety of youth and recreation services for the Fairfield local community.
Fairfield Park has been attracting touristS from all over Sydney since it opened in 2015.It really is an incredible park.
So for your next school holidays be sure to check out this awesome new playground. Its definitely worth it.
