Apex Park
Apex Park is popular with locals and buzzes with children climbing, sliding and having lots of fun on weekends and after school.
 
The playground was specifically designed to provide activities for the adjoining neighbourhood and schools. Lots of parents take advantage of the location on the corner Gwydir and Edward Streets to have a snack and a play after school.
 
The play equipment includes a flying fox, a spring rider, swings, climbers and a mini rock wall. There is also a double slide so children can race each other down the slides. Wood-shaving soft fall protects the children from injury. The entire playground is covered with a shade structure to shield children from the sun as they play.
 
The large flat grassed area beside the playground is perfect for party games and children’s activities. Trees provide shade and opportunities for hide-and-seek.
  
The park also includes a number of covered tables and free electric barbeque facilities.
