On a hot summers day, Oamaru somehow doesn’t capture the breeze from the ocean it sits nearly on, but at least this playground has shade in the carpark and some shade in the playground itself.
The wider reserve the park is within is massive and the playground itself has a broad range of play equipment. There is generous parking, plenty of space to run around, and a host of spaces to sit and enjoy a picnic, or to explore.
The whole park is worth an explore and could fill in an extensive afternoon. Even better, its right next to the local Top10, so if you are camping, this is on your doorstep!
