Hedgerow Reserve Playground in Gulfview Heights.
Review by Claire Davill
The City of Salisbury has upgraded the reserve at the end of Hedgerow Drive and the playground has some excellent equipment for all ages, with fantastic options for toddlers and climbing options for bigger kids.
Perched on a hillside at the end of the street, and surrounded by open fields and scrub, you’ll find plenty of rope ladders, climbing walls, a fireman’s pole and a swing set including a toddler swing and basket swing.
There’s lots of climbing and scrambling opportunities packed into the equipment here, and everything has a green, nature-themed feel to it.
There are some old-school flip bars at various heights and climbing poles too, that offer a range of challenges.
There’s a nice big slide on the central equipment as well.
The playground also features a set of impressive toddler equipment, sized for the smallest of kids.
Here you’ll find a tiny tunnel, steps and small slide, coloured binoculars and a fun animal themed measuring board.
An activity board and three-way springy seesaw are also designed for younger children.
A colourful and very melodic upright xylophone and flower shaped telephones round out the playground. There’s also a basketball ring just up the hill.
There are benches, a covered picnic table and rubbish bin, but no toilets in the reserve.
Things to consider:
- The playground is unfenced. It is located at the dead end of a very quiet residential street, and there is very little traffic around.
- The playground is surrounded by a lot of open areas with good visibility, so there’s room to run and roam.
- There’s no shade over the playground, and while this is no problem on cloudy days, you’ll need sunscreen on sunny days. Be aware that the slides are metal and might get quite hot in summer.
- There’s no toilets on site, but there are toilets at the nearby Cobbler Creek Playground.
End of Hedgerow Dr, Gulfview Heights
