Berwick Waters Grand Prix Playground This park is every bit as awesome as it sounds. Great equipment with flying foxes, swings and slides. A huge bonus is the awesome, parenting considered design – when standing in the middle almost everywhere is visible – handy to keep an eye on multiple kiddies at once! Most importantly – don't forget to bring your little one's bikes along so they can enjoy the race track.
