Mamma just loves the security of a fully fenced playground - throw in a cafe and her day is made! This playground has a beautiful mix of great spaces without being at all overwhelming. There are slides and bridges with a shade sail, a big flying fox (find it hidden at the far end!), a central zone with swings, spinning structures and things to climb and finally the shady zone with stepping stone mazes and cubbies to stake your claim - there’s something for all ages. The paved tracks and asphalt around the junior sized basketball courts give the bike loving kids a chance to burn some rubber. The best part is that there is now a cafe on site - and it’s run by Araluen Food Services, who provide on-the-job-training for participants wanting to acquire job skills and work more independently - so it’s for a great cause! The park is surrounded by sports ovals, bike tracks and is a stone’s throw from the Yarra River and the Heide Muesum of Modern Art.
Mamma's special mention: Spotted - a sign warning of magpies in the area. We saw none, but if visiting in the Spring time or in swooping season.
