Harleston Park is named after the birthplace of Sir Fredrick Grimwade who built Grimwade House, formerly Harleston House, in 1875.
The playground at Harleston Park features a large and long slide that sits atop a natural hill. It also includes:
- a climbing mound
- a variety of other slides
- a wizard's double tower fortress
- a sensory maze with feature acorn cubby
- giant bird's nest swing
A three-point basketball court provides alternative play opportunities, with the running stream water feature adding further character to this park.
Thank you to Sport Australia for their contribution to the three-point basketball court as part of the Community Sport Infrastructure Grant.
Picnic shelters and BBQs
The picnic shelter is located beside the playground, with multiple picnic tables available for social gatherings, birthday parties and various celebrations. There are BBQ facilities nearby to the picnic shelter to add another element to your picnic.
The redevelopment of the play space at Harleston Park will also see a secondary picnic shelter constructed and available for hire.
