Roselea Park in Shailer Park | Super Slides & Pirate Ships
Roselea Park, opened in July 2014, is an adventure playground for all ages located in Shailer Park.
Roselea Park – The Fun
Roselea Park replaces the previous skate park in Roselea Street, with a huge climbing fort complete with super slide and a smaller preschool pirate ship playhouse. The park has terraced stone seating, shade sails, picnic tables, swings, basketball court and fitness equipment, as well as plenty of bike and scooter paths.
The Imagination Factor
The main structure of the playground at Roselea Park is a very tall castle. Children can clamber up 4 stories high to slide down the spiral super slide from the top. This is a huge hit with children of all ages and is very fast. Under the fort are play spaces and a climbing net. There is also a fireman’s pole from the second story of the castle. Children can immerse themselves in the thrill and adventure of climbing so high and then zooming down again either using the slide or the pole.
A preschool pirate ship is next to the castle. This provides smaller children with a climbing wall, slide, steering wheel and telescope. There is a pulley system to fill a bucket full of the soft fall bark chip and then pour it down a shoot. Inside the pirate ship there is also a small scullery kitchen to prepare and serve up your pirate friends some imaginary morsels.
Whilst this playground is accessible via ramps, it has no equipment that specifically caters for special needs such as wheel chairs. There are no toilet facilities in this park, however toilets are located in the adjacent shopping complex.
