h a n n a H h t i w g Hangin Timbertop Playground Timbertop Drive, Doreen

Timbertop Palyground is a cute li le park for young children. Hannah really liked the climbing frame - which she climbed over and over again! The playground has play equipment for all ages and play levels. There is a big climbing frame with 2 fireman poles for big kids and a slide, smaller climbing equipment for younger children, a motor bike spring bouncer and a 4 sided spring bouncer. The park offers 2 covered areas for par es, seats, tables, 2 bbqs, a bin, and a drink tap. However, there are no toilets. Hannah’s p of the month - there really is no reason not to visit your local park!
