Playful Parks

Maitland Park

Maitland Park ticks all the boxes. It is a great place to enjoy with lots of shade, green spaces ideal for kicking a ball around, accessible toilets, a shared pathway that winds around the entire park and a fully fenced all abilities playground. Pack the kids scooters and bikes and let their imagination run free on the pretend road completed with signs, crossings, speed bumps and refuelling area.


Surrounding the historic Walka Recreation and Wildlife Reserve, this reserve offers 112 hectares of park, lake and bush land. As well as being a popular picnic and recreation area in the Maitland district, is also steeped in history that gives it a special place in the Lower Hunter’s heritage.
