After a brief delay, the newly-built Gulgong Adventure Park was declared open last week on Friday, July 5 - just in time for the school holidays.
The park has been eagerly anticipated by children and parents in the region and last weekend was the perfect stress test for the facility.
One excited Gulgong mum, Sherrie Allport called the Mudgee Guardian to ask if we'd come along and photograph her daughter's birthday party which was being held at the park on Saturday.
We thought this might be the perfect chance to see the park at its best, so Mudgee Guardian photographer, Simone Kurtz went along to find out.
It's definitely the best park in Gulgong now.
Sherrie said the park was such a hit that the party almost held itself.
"I think it's fantastic, I barely saw the kids all day actually. We didn't even have to put on any party games, the kids just wanted to play on the equipment," Mrs Allport said.
"It's definitely the best park in Gulgong now."
The park is located on Nandoura Street next to the Gulgong Pool.
