The best playgrounds in Melbourne

Melbourne has plenty of playgrounds throughout the city, from nature-based play zones to classic adventure playgrounds. With everything from swing sets to trampolines on offer, these are a great way for your little ones to burn off some energy outside.  Does your family love a bike ride? Here are Melbourne's best bike paths. Or spend some time frolicking at one of Melbourne's best beaches. According to the Victorian government's roadmap, playgrounds can reopen to the public. Check with the relevant council to confirm playground opening hours prior to attending. You cannot travel further than 25km from home to visit a playground and you should maintain physical distancing where possible, practice good hand hygiene and not visit playgrounds if you or your child is unwell. Adults and children over 12 must wear a face mask.
