These Big Little Parks are larger than your suburban playground but not as big as some of Perth’s Super Parks. They are designed specifically for toddlers, preschoolers and early primary aged children with a focus on sensory and lower level play.
When you are a parent of a toddler or young child sometimes a big playground is not always better. The play equipment is often too high for them to play independently, the park is so big it’s hard to keep track of your children and your toddler or preschooler may not be able to play on much of the equipment as they simply aren’t big enough.
At these parks your toddler or preschooler will be able to play independently and experience all the adventure of a days play in the park and coincidentally they all feature excellent natural shade.
