On the doorstep of any property in Darwin there is a wide variety of recreational facilities where families, young people and children can all enjoy a fantastic outdoor lifestyle.
There are many parks throughout the city offering all kinds of potential fun. A number of them have shaded seating, BBQ areas and wide open spaces for burning off excess energy.
Scattered throughout these parks are a number of playgrounds, which are free to use and can provide endless hours of entertainment for children.
One of the city's most loved parks, the Jingili Skate Park is set for redevelopment this year. Currently, council members and skating enthusiasts are putting plans together to redevelop the skate park to make it perfect for all skating abilities.
For the sportier families, public tennis and netball courts are available in several areas. These facilities can be used free of charge and without prior booking.
Furthermore, the increasing number of cycle paths throughout the city have made it safer for children and parents to head out on their bicycle. Whether it's biking through Palmerston suburbs to school or a daily commute through to Darwin CBD, there are many safe and enjoyable paths for outdoor-loving residents to utilise.
