We made the most of the glorious winter weather and headed down to the Dinosaur Park, a small local play space that has more than meets the eye!

If you haven’t yet ventured to the Dinosaur Park in Palmyra, you’re missing out! Even though the park is quite small, there’s still plenty to keep the little ones and big kids occupied.

When you arrive, you’re greeted by two colourful dinosaurs that all the kids absolutely loved to climb on and slide down.

For the younger ones, there’s a playground with sandpit, slide and nest swing, but there’s no shade sail so it could get quite hot in the summer months.

There’s a path that goes around the perimeter, which provides a safe way for kids to practise their cycling skills or, as my boys did, have speed trials and races. Along the path, kids can spot several ‘fossils’ that add another great feature and element of surprise.

The older ones can make use of a basketball hoop, plus there’s a large grassy area to kick a ball around or have a picnic, with natural shade provided by the tree cover.
