Nugget Place playground is a smaller-sized playground compared to Frontier Park and Woodlea Adventure Playground though there’s still enough equipment to keep kids entertained for an hour or two, especially if you bring wheels!

There’s a half-size basketball and netball court for ball games as well as scooter/bike paths around the play area. Near the basketball court there is some adult exercise equipment.
