ferndale park, glen iris

Attention kids of Boroondara! The highly anticipated Ferndale Park is NOW OPEN.

This is a brilliant upgrade to the local playground and now has a resident ogre that is watching over all the action. The park uses the slope of the land well, incorporating slides into the hillside and a rope acting as a hand rail to get back to the main fan fair at the top. Mamma also loves that the sandpit is undercover and has a building table too!

There is a large framed main structure with slides, climbing pyramid and bridges. A new set of swings includes Mamma’s favourite - the double expression swing, plus it looks as if there will be some great big shade sails going in above this area. The Glen Iris locals have given this one a great homecoming over the Easter weekend and now it is our turn for a play.

Mamma’s special mentions: Coffee just over the road you say? YES. Glen Iris Pantry is just opposite the park. SOLD
