I was not able to get good pictures as the park was fairly busy when we visited but the Southern Road Recreation Ground park in Thame is a lovely playground, with play equipment which caters to wide age range.
The toddler area is fenced within a wider fenced area to keep it separate from the rest of the play ground, which I quite liked actually. There is reasonable slide play-frame with slide, which is slightly bigger than other toddler frames but not too intimadting, a roundabout, little tunnel, swings, springers and sensory equipment.
Outside the enclosed area is another slide on top of a small mound, which was actually faster than I expected. You could either hike up the hillock or go upstairs. Basketball court was just next to it
The older children have a fair bit of variety. There is a larger metal play frame with monkey bars, pole slides, climbing ladder, fireman pole. Many kids were attempting to do while timing each other- it did not look easy but fortunately there is soft rubber flooring underneath. There was also the gyro spiral where two people hang from the opposite ends and rotate around
Several pieces of outdoor gym equipment, stepping stones and balancing logs are dotted around the park. There is a huge grass field on the other side with football posts
