Planes, trains and automobiles! Kids seem to love them all and it is a popular choice of playground designers to include all sorts of transportation amongst the fun at your local playground. Here are the ones Mamma has uncovered in the east. TOOT-TOOT!
You can’t beat a park with a helicopter. Or petrol pump. Or a tram! Lucky for this spot, it’s got all three. Foley Reserve in Kew is one of the most adorable play spaces in the east.
Mamma LOVED this classic community playground before the upgrade, but now it is EVEN BETTER! The Cardinia Community Playground is based on a classic wooden framed play space with heaps of twists and turns and things to climb over.
Has Fireman Sam left his truck on Matisse Drive in Templestowe? Let’s hope he has forgotten it because it makes a great place to play.
Ladies and Gents, start your engines. Pop on a helmet. Ding those bells. GET READY TO RACE! There is a BRAND NEW Grand Prix themed playground and it is just made for riding.
It is the simple places that can bring out the imagination of your little ones. Hartwell Station Reserve is exactly that type of playground. The fully fenced playground is ideal for your train lover and gets a bit thumbs up for having coffee nearby at Fordahm’s Milk Bar.
This playground has been dubbed the 'Green Park' in our house as pretty much all the equipment is, you guessed it, GREEN. The linear playspace has heaps to climb on and test those ninja skills.
There is nothing more special than an old school wooden playground. One filled to the brim with its own unique treasures, custom made for the space, and Mamma bets, has featured in plenty of family photos over the years.
Space lovers are going to be in heaven when they blast off into the giant space-themed playground, disembark down the huge twisty slide and even power the spaceship through the control station!
The playground that lies right next door to the Gembrook Railway Station is EXACTLY as you expected. A little train themed park.

Stop the car. Stretch the legs and have a play at the station!
It is a two for one deal in Burwood - A cafe and a playground in the one trip.
Although the Burwood Skyline Drive In has long gone, the memory remains on the site with this gorgeous little play spot.
Trains are everywhere! Trains on the tracks. Trains in the sheds. Trains in the park! I have a feeling there is a theme going on at the Elgar Park.
Boroondara Park is full of wheels, tooting and flying. The transport themed playground is a great play space with lots of corners and colours to explore.
Seville is now set for all year round, family fun. The brand new playspace has JUST opened right next door to the Seville Water Play and it is brilliant!
A playspace that is in perfect condition, that has great easy stairs to climb and is full of train themed equipment, is a total winner in Mamma’s book.
This great community space is huge! Heaps of different sections for a range of age groups and abilities - but most importantly - a TRAIN!
As Mamma randomly explored another little corner of Mount Evelyn, we found Morrison Reserve and THE most spectacular view!
