the boathouse playground, moonee ponds

Look, we have said this many a time and we will say it again - playgrounds next to a place where you can get coffee or even sit down and have a meal are just well, Mamma heaven! 

To be honest this playground is fantastic as a stand alone spot to play too - those views! Plus it is always teeming with people which is nice if you are like this Mamma and need to have a chat with other parenting folks!

It is set on a hill leading down to the beautiful Maribyrnong River and has some great features. Mamma loves the special sculptures here too - they just make for an interesting story! 

You'll also find all the usual play equipment here including swings, a ride in boat, slides and heaps more!

Mamma's special mention:  The Boathouse Kiosk or The Boathouse is RIGHT here and great for food and/or coffee!
