“nice for a bit of time out and about”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

whenever the child needs to get out and play and the hubby is keen to sit around and eat and I am keen to shop, shop, shop... we head to Brightwater which meets all of these needs.
there is a nice junglegym right next to a decent enough cafe where we park the husband and child. then mum can go and hit PicknPay, Clicks, Mr Price, Ackermans and Woolies. They are all pretty small shops, but have the necessities. My fave is a kitchen shop hidden away above the woolies. lots of fun stuff and gadgets and very well priced.
for the older kids, there's a skate park (right next to the Spur!) and a carousel as well as nice open places to sit and chill. there's often stuff going on too.
and there's an established market in the centre of it all which makes for some great browsing.
all in all, it's a nice place to spend a few hours.
