Minkarra Park, Flagstaff Hill

Minkarra Park This playground is actually part of a much greater recreation area.  Immediately adjacent to it is the Minkarra skate park, the Minkarra dog park and a large general park area with walking and biking trails - as well as an outdoor exercise station if you fancy doing some pull ups while your little ones burn off energy.

There is dedicated parking on Manning Road, immediately off Happy Valley Road and there are also public toilets here too.

The playground is adjacent to the parking so there is no need to drag small tired legs too far.  It is a really well shaded area and has a good range of play equipment that will suit both younger and older children.  There are, naturally, a couple of swings and a slide, but there is also a very large climbing frame, a see-saw that will seat 4 and a spring rider.  This is also a circular spinning 'thing' (see photo!).

There is a table and some seating and the Aberfoyle Hub shopping centre is very close by, so while there are no BBQ facilities you can still organise yourself some lunch or afternoon tea.

I imagine this playground gets pretty busy and it's not massive.  Also, unless you head off into the main park itself (not something you'd want your little one doing on their lonesome) there is very limited space for just running around.

Given the extra facilities here, this is definitely a playground that's worth going out of your way to visit.
