What a great playground for the kids
Bayview Park is within the Point Cook estate Alamanda.

The park features a long and steep slide which goes down a purpose built hill and is suitable for older children. Next to the large slide is a smaller one for younger children. There is also an additional slide attached to the pirate ship.

Ships ahoy! Pretend you are a pirate of the large wooden pirate ship - the HMAS Villawood. The kids will have a fantastic time on the climbing ladder and slide attached to the ship, plus there is a tunnel, fireman's pole, abacus, and binoculars.

Up high on the hill there are great views to the CBD and Port Phillip Bay for all to see. From the pirate ship there is another slippery slide. The pirate ship connects via a bridge to the big slide area.

There are multiple shaded areas to sit under. One contains a large shade sail which has a bench and for the kids, a sandpit with a green crane to move sand around, a circular birds best swing and a climbing frame.

Don't forget to bring a basketball as there is a great concrete court which has a basketball ring down one end and a netball ring down the other. So a great place to shoot some hoops.

There is also a fully undercover picnic area complete with table and electric BBQ provides a viewpoint over the lower part of the playground. You will need to venture up the hill which is quite steep to supervise the younger children on the pirate ship.

Please note that there are no toilets at the park.
