Do you need a place where you can feel relaxed as a parent while the kids explore and play? Have you got a runner? Then this playground could be a really good option. Located next to an oval this little playground is fully fenced in (there are a couple of gates you need to check are closed) and Mamma can honestly say plonking on a park bench and taking a breath is actually a possibility here. 
The playground itself is quite good too, with a large green car/tractor big enough to fit 12 kids! Swings, surfboard, nest swing, climbing frame, sand pit and double slide. There is more than enough to keep the kids happy for an hour or so.

Mamma's special mentions: this area has a couple of options for fun and eats. Try Nearby POD cafe or Dumbo Cafe. Both Great - oh and West Footscray Library isn't far away!

the nitty gritty

lots of shade - lots of free parking - no toilets - drinking fountain - shaded seating - BBQ - picnic tables - fully fenced in!
