Ewloe Swing Park, Ewloe

Ewloe Swing Park
The swing park is in really good condition. There are a couple of swings, a couple of climbing frames, a modern seessaw and some animal things with springs that kids can sit on and bounce back and forwards (not sure of the technical name!)

The park is surrounded by a secure fence to keep the kids safe. There are benches to sit on to have a nice sit back and relax as your kids run around. Really nice park in good condition and one major bonus is the park always appears empty.

address: Head for Unilever on St.Davids Park; go past it and the park can be found on your left
