warburton road reserve, canterbury

There ain’t nothing sweeter than a little street park that pays respect to its little page in history! The Warburton Road Reserve playground (which has better access via Matlock Street if you ask us) is located next door to The Sullivan House - the outdoor location where the 70s Aussie TV drama "The Sullivan's” was filmed. SO it is only fitting that the cubby house - which is fully accessible for wheelchair users - also bares this name.

The playground is adorable with many features Mamma can’t get enough of; starting with the white picket fence along the road side. Then there is the proud standing magpie, the car frame with real tyres and a great play structure where the kids had a ball. There is a good amount of shade with some great old trees covering the playground and there are walking trails nearby.

Super adorable little local slice of eastie suburban history.

Mamma’s special mentions: Maling Road shopping strip is not far from the playground and here you will find a toy shop, book shops and some classic little cafes including Between Us Cafe.
