Allow me to start by saying that if you have children that won’t sit still and always up for the next adventure, then read on…
Blayney is a small village about 30 minutes southeast from Orange and 30 minutes southwest of Bathurst by car. There are charming historical buildings nearby and if it’s at the right time of year; (around end of September/October) you might spot some bright yellow canola fields along the road when driving via Millthorpe.
The Skatepark is situated in Heritage Park. This is a picture perfect destination for a day trip so pack a picnic and bring the entire family including your dogs (there is a dog-friendly area where you can let them off the leash).
Please note, if you have young children, you need to watch them at all times as there is water in ponds although certainly not suitable for swimming. If you are counting on take-away, there is very little open on a Sunday.
Our boys jumped out the car so fast with excitement that they beat our dogs to discover this huge playground. It has been well designed with multiple pieces of equipment to play on with shade sails. The skate park was opened late 2018 and has been well maintained looking virtually new.
You can bring your scooter, skateboard or bike as the surface is super smooth. The bowl design is not too big for the younger kids to tweens.
There are bike paths not far away as well and if you love soaking up nature; you could spot up to fifteen species of birds in the area.
The toilets are not bad, although I always bring tissues and hand sanitiser where ever I go.
Heritage park is on the corner of Adelaide and Martha Streets.
