It also caters for visiting mum's and dad's too with several BBQ areas, lots of shaded areas, well maintained and designed surroundings and it's fully fenced in. There is also a fenced area with newly installed gym equipment.
The playground itself is at one end of a green and leafy reserve so if you want to run off some steam, have a kick about or fly a kite there is so much open space. There is also a dog park adjacent to the park if you need to walk/train the dogs.
It is on the Carrum to Mordialloc bike track, so a perfect stop off point for a picnic if you're having an afternoon on the bikes. It's a perfect place to meet for family gatherings, mother's groups and play dates.

Nothing is ever perfect though and one of the park's main drawbacks is its popularity. Weekends can be busy, busy, busy! People have been seen claiming spots for birthday parties as early as 7am.
Coffee and refreshments are also a few minutes away by car which is not necessarily a bad thing but I'm a coffee fan. There is an ice cream van that does turn up regularly though on weekends.
This park is certainly worth a visit, it's lovely seeing it utilised by families through the year, being visited by school groups, enjoyed by those exercising in the fresh air and events being held there by various groups.
What a fantastic playground for kids.. This was a "must visit" park on our way home to Altona from Wilsons Prom on Australia Day. My girls were absolutely spoiled for choice, they didn't know where to start at first... We were also impressed with the many picnic spots available - what a great day out for families..
I spent hours and hours here as a child in the 80's and now I get to take my son there and spend hours and hours there. This place just gets better and better. My son especially loves the train and music room.
