Atherstone's newest playground is now open!

Palara Village Park completed mid-April. Walk, cycle, skate, or scooter down and discover this fun, nature-inspired play space.

Palara Village Park features an unmissable green and grey ‘boxy’ design that pays tribute to the native grey box eucalyptus trees found in and around Atherstone. Chances are, you’ve probably walked past one of these majestic trees before – and if not, you’ll find one preserved in the park.

Got little ones with energy to burn off? The kids won’t know where to begin once they enter the playground. There’s a half-basketball court to shoot hoops with your friends, a hit-up wall to perfect your tennis skills, a sand play area to let your imagination run free, percussion play for the littlest musicians, talk tubes for endless chatter, plus spring rockers, swings, and slides.

And what’s better than one slide? Four slides, of course! The park has slides of varying heights, suited to the littlest visitors right through to the older daredevils.

For the little skate grommets, there is even a dedicated area to practise ollies, grinds, and slides!

Palara Village Park is the perfect space to host your next casual gathering with public BBQ facilities, plenty of casual seating, lush garden beds, and a pavilion shelter to offer protection from the weather. There’s also plenty of open space to have a picnic or kick around a ball, so gear up for a fun outing for all ages.

This year residents have enjoyed the opening of the Atherstone Traffic Education School, the Central Wetlands, and now Palara Village Park. The park officially celebrated it's open with an event that was held on Saturday April 22.

We can't wait to see what the community continue to use this exciting new space!
