The playground at Smart Park, Spearwood, is tucked away amongst big trees so there’s lots of shade. This playground is more suited to children aged 4 years and above. There’s plenty of opportunity to get some ninja training with the rope climbing frame and then practise their skills on the spiderweb swing.

Smart Park is a hidden gem next to Barrington Street and is more than a playground. There is so much for you to explore with tiered gardens, mature trees, waterfalls, footbridges and ponds. The children will enjoy watching the ducks and listening to the cockatoos, but please do not feed the wildlife. There’s a gazebo for the children to put on a performance and plenty of nature to let their inner adventurer explore, as well as hills to run down.

This is an on-leash dog park – make sure to keep them out of the water as it is hazardous and please clean up after any mess.

It’s a great place for picnics and to watch the clouds float by. You could spend all morning here, just be sure to BYO your coffee as the closest is the Stargate shopping centre.

Smart Park is definitely worth a visit, you wouldn’t know that you were in the middle of Suburbia!
