Darlington Parklands in Yarrabilba is a brilliant place to visit with your toddler, it is well worth the drive. We combined our visit to this great park and playground with a lunch stop at the equally awesome Crunchy’s All-Day Desserts Café. We highly recommend planning a day trip toddler adventure and visiting both these places on the same day!
The big highlight of our visit to Darlington Parklands was the multi-level water play area with fountains, shallow pools, waterfalls, cascading water channels, bridges and stepping stones. There is so much for your little one to explore in this one area of Darlington Parklands alone!
But the fun, exploration and discovery doesn’t stop at the water play area. It was easy to spend a couple of hours at this well designed parkland that is ideal for families. Our visit also included a play on both forts and the nature play space. We had so much to see and do, we didn’t even get to the swings which are located at the far end of the parklands from where we parked.
Although I found it difficult to get Fletcher and Harper to willingly leave Darlington Parklands, we didn’t stay till near dark but if this is an option for you, I have been told there are daily light shows to be enjoyed, via the LED light poles on display in the parklands.
