Traffic Park @ Aston

Location : Cragieburn

This park is separated into two main play areas and is suitable for all ages.

The main play area has climbing structures for ages most suited to children that can climb a ladder (approx. 2yrs and up – as a rough guide in my opinion). I was surprised that by the end of the day my son, 2+, was happily climbing the ladders by himself, as he hadn’t done that before.

There are swing sets, balance ropes and hammock swing, I’m not sure if that’s the name but its like the one from Bluey’s pirate episode. There are two small in ground trampolines.

It has a dedicated traffic track complete with road signs, great for teaching children road safety without worrying about cars. The kids just kept going around it like mad, so it’s brilliant to get rid of excess energy. Don’t forget you helmet!

Musical instrument: Some how this still sounds nice and melodic, no matter how the kids hit it.

When we went it was just after lock down restrictions had been lifted on parks, so it was clean and well maintained. The gardens where nice too. I really like the purple Stevia plant growing there mixed in with the grasses.
