lawford street reserve, doncaster

Check out the size of this climbing pyramid. This is a GIANT rope structure and is the pride and joy of the Lawford Street Reserve - in fact, we can’t think of a playground that has a taller climbing frame! It’s also not the only huge part. The hillside slide is super long too.

The Reserve is a great little playground and uses the fall of the land to its advantage. There are lots of rocks to scramble over and even a dry creek bed with some great big stones to build with. The rest of the playground features a little cubby, some friendly animal sculptures, swings and a junior play structure with slide - this one needs confident climbers to get up a ladder (our little guy ain’t up to this yet).

Mamma's special mention: The reserve is part of a walking trail that feeds into the nearby estate which has THREE brilliant playgrounds. Verdant Park, Phar Lap Drive and Heritage Boulevard.
