Margaret Mahy Family Playground Reviews
One of the most amazing playgrounds I've ever been to. Something for everyone, no matter your age. Clearly designed for adventure, exploration and learning with safety (rubber flooring) in mind that doesn't kill the fun. Huge slides, climbing ropes and structures, flying fox, water/engineering play. Some sun shade. Not sure who had more fun, us or our 2yo. Wish we had similar adventurous playgrounds of this breadth in our area in Melbourne (closest equivalent in Melbs would be the Royal Park Nature Play Playground)... Definitely shows there's a focus on helping all kids grow. Oh, and it's free!
Such a great spot to take the children, my 4yo and 2yo both love it, water play for warmer weather, plenty of things to do for children right up to young teens. Plenty of space for wheelchairs and prams, good parking beside the play area. Grassed areas are great for parents to set out a picnic blanket and relax, have seen many babies kicking around the blankets. So many things for children to do, even when busy, there is no shortage of entertainment for the children. There are shade cloths to help with the summer sun and planted seats so there is always a seat out of the wind if needed. Having trailers selling hot and cold food and drinks are mostly good with a down side good for cold or hot days for something to help warm or cool you. Down side is the children ask for a lot more than just play and that costs. (My advice, bring snacks and drinks 😊)
