Admiralty Park - Playground
The playground is built into the hilly terrain. With so much ups and downs, it is not surprise that the playground consist of an exciting range of 26 slides! From little ones to massive ones that are up to 3 floors high! A wide variety of play equipment spreads across the Junior Play, Adventure Play and Family Play zones making it suitable for kids of all ages!
Kids have so many choices! From normal slides to covered ones, and even a noodle bar slide that goes from the top of the terrain all the way down! The most impressive in our opinion are the covered silver slides that go from the top of the playground (we estimate at least 3 floors high)! The metal surface makes it a quick entry and exit! Our verdict? These are not just for kids but also for adventurous Mummies and Daddies too!
You will find sand play areas around the playground too! So do bring along your buckets and spades to let the little ones dig! As a bonus, there are shaded areas around the sand play to allow parents to take a break while keeping an eye on the kids!
Suitable for All Ages And Abilities!
The park is divided into 3 main areas - Junior Play, Adventure Play and Family Play. Each catered for different age groups and for varying degree of adventure. The playground also features an inclusive playground, as part of an initiative announced by NParks in 2015. This includes a wheelchair friendly swing and more!

The park also boast a flying fox! To find it, head up the main play structure (the one with the silver slides) and on your way up, it is on your left! Or simply ask one of the kids!
Plenty Of Shades and Seats
Another reason for loving Admiralty Park is that there are lots of seats and shade available for parents to take a break and be away from the sun too! This allows us parents to last longer and for the kids to have lots of fun!
