Doncaster Reserve Playground
This playspace has many fun play opportunities including a monkey bar, swings, slides, see-saw, tunnel, climbing challenges and many swings. Adjacent to the playground is some exercise equipment (and instructions) for adults which is perfect to meet up with friends and keep fit. There are bus routes nearby on Doncaster Road or easy carparking on site.
Doncaster Reserve Urban Plaza
With outdoor lounge style seating, seating walls, picnic table and eye catching steel art panels, the area is one to rest your legs and bask in some sunlight. Doncaster Secondary College students have worked alongside an artist to produce custom panels to offset this space and tie in with the Oak trees, which provide shade and character.
This urban oasis is the first of five plaza spaces to be implemented as a recommendation of the Open Space Strategy 2014, and has seen this unused area near the Doncaster Road entrance, transformed into a space that is inviting and safe.
