Eltham Toy Wall

This quirky attraction started in the 1970s when the late Faye Young found some toys in neighbouring Bridger Park. She left the toys on the wall between her house and the park in the hope that the toy's owners would find them. Instead, more toys appeared on the wall. Mrs Young and her family cemented the toys into the wall. There are now thousands of toys in the wall to be enjoyed by young and old.

Address: Bridger Park, Eltham

History

The Star Gym was opened in March 1957 as a memorial to the members of the Star Football Club and Spotswood United Club who served and fell in World War II. The clubs raised half the money for the building of the gymnasium and members donated their time to build the facility. The Council became involved so that grants for war memorial funding could be given. A condition of this funding was that the New Plymouth 'City' Council own the land and the gymnasium.

The two rugby clubs merged in the late 1980s. The hall is managed by a joint committee (Star Gym Control Committee) comprising of Council officers and rugby club representatives.

The upstairs lounge users have access to a small kitchen and toilet facilities. Each room is available to be hired separately. All have disability access.
