Whether you're organising an epic dodgeball match or bored with your local swingset, this super-playground surrounded by a huge grassy area under the Bolte Bridge has you covered. Expect loads of sand, diggers, swings and a water play area with pumps, fountains and mini waterfalls. The tunnel slides are a standout, second only to the giant wooden teepee that looks like an alien creature with slides for arms.
Playgrounds have reopened, with one parent or guardian permitted per household. Make sure you check in via the QR code, and only visit a playground that is within the allowed radius from your home. Visit the DHHS for current restrictions.
The weather is warming, and after being cooped up all winter, kids are itching to get outside. You can practically smell the tanbark from here. We've all got fond childhood memories of visiting the playground, and luckily Melbourne is chockers with some really great ones. Across the city there are plenty of sites for kids to run amok, with everything from swings to sandpits on offer.
