Taradale has become a quiet, peaceful retreat since the Calder Freeway bypass came into effect. The large park and surrounds are rarely shared with other passersby and are an idyllic way to enjoy a picnic and play on the swings. The new playground equipment and variation of activities keep children happy, and whilst playing, parents can access the famous mineral spring pump.
The play equipment is suitable for both young and older children. A favourite with the kids is the pommel type flying fox. On a hot day the slides, made from metal, can heat up. The park has been thoughtfully built with the larger slide harder to access for smaller children.
