Pirrama Park

This is Caitlin and Kirra’s favourite:  “It has a great café, awesome playground with water play, plenty of room for my son to ride his bike, and clean toilets!” We give it a big thumbs up too. We’ve played there many times for a run though the water feature. The sandpit and climbing structures are good too. I like this end of town. Harris St from beginning to end or at least the bits off it are – Chinatown, Powerhouse, Ian’s pool,...

What a Beading Beauty

I met award winning jewellery designer, Melissa Player last year when I profiled her for Creative Beading magazine. She is a Blue Mountains mama who is steadily building up a jewellery business whilst nurturing and creatively inspiring her boys, Matthew and Nicholas. My beading journey began when they were very young. “Almost every afternoon, after an active morning, they would sleep and I would bead. I’ve always been a crafty person...

Bicentennial Park

Glebe has a few good parks but Bicentennial is our fav in this hood. It’s part of the Glebe Foreshore Walk which we’re yet to fully explore. We just keep getting stuck around this park’s great picnic area with views and a pretty fine playground. Here’s how City of Sydney describes Bicentennial Park: “It runs the length of Rozelle Bay from the end of Glebe Point Road to Chapman Road in the west. The park contains a large enclosed and...

Zoe’s Place

It’s too hard to have any park love when the parks are more like puddles. So I offer you Zoe’s House – a great wet weather option for those with little ones. Actually the Powerhouse is a good rainy day option for all ages. Zoe’s House however is a kid section of the PM. It’s all about construction and the kids can put together a building using huge soft walls – Great for the boys of course but girls get into it too....

Clifton Gardens

I have to tell you about my Clifton Gardens story. It was a Saturday and I gathered up the guys for a picnic and play at Clifton Gardens. I’d been there before but for them it was a new park to explore. So we arrived and found ourselves a spot under a tree. Sharing our shade was a woman who had been kayaking. We got talking and discovered she’d been my nephew’s teacher for the past seven years (she is a Steiner teacher and they...

Room to Play

Room to Play

Tearza Stark owns a Steiner inspired day care where children are encouraged to imagine and love the world around them. She created it after realising that many children around her simply didn’t know how to play.“I opened Once Upon a Time Steiner Children’s Centre 13 years ago after a decade of mainstream teaching during which time I noticed that many of children I cared for didn’t know how to play. If there wasn’t a variety of...

Canowindra Play

Melissa Barber and her gals love their local – Memorial Park in Canowindra. “There are really lovely swings sets and gardens there with shade and park benches for lazy mummies. Everyone in town with kids goes there. Being a small town just that in itself has loads of advantages”. Here’s a bit more on Canowindra …It’s a beautiful country town, where my husband grew up and where we were married. (SQ) Share...
