If you are looking for a playground with an amazing view, Mamma says this has to be to be one of the best in the West. It's perched on a hill of sorts above the Maribyrnong River, overlooking bush land, a golden temple and the city. The playground is near a main road and seemingly on the flight path to the airport (which we LOVE!) however we find it to be rather tranquil and not super busy. There is some 'low' play equipment for 'little tackers' as well as more challenging pieces of equipment like a cool climbing frame, swings, slides and monkey bars. The BBQ shelter is great plus there is a completely fenced of dog walking park adjacent, a basketball court and some outdoor exercise equipment too.
Mamma's special mention: Brimbank City Council have some great playgrounds. Check out Alice's Playspace in St Albans too!
the nitty gritty
BBQ, shelter, little shade, some free car parking, no public toilets nearby.
