Hold on to your hats boys and girls...there are DINOSAURS all over this park. The Megasaurus Playground in Cranbourne East's Livingston Estate is one of a kind. 100 percent unique and one for the imagination. The standout feature has to be the brontosaurus with the flying fox that runs down it's belly, followed closely to the stegosaurus plates that appear to be rising from the ground. These are dotted with climbing holds and make a perfect track to race through and make a great big roar. Add to this the pterodactyl swing that doubles as a toddler hiding spot and the massive 20m long climbing frame that certainly hasn't been seen before. Great for the confident climbers to negotiate, they will quickly find things to rattle and shake, and finally slide down the astroturf covered tail at the end. The novelty factor continues with a nest complete with cracking dino eggs and signs cautioning all visitors of the prehistoric giants.
Mamma's special mention: If climbing is your kids cup of tea and they love this park, definitely check out Monash's Valley Reserve in Glen Waverley for your next challenge. But if it is Dinosaurs they are into check our Dinosaur World in Sommerville and at Garden World, Braeside.
