Borrello Park, Roleystone

Published July 20th 2012

It's no secret that Roleystone is abundant with community charm and a very green-a-licious aesthetic that lures many a driver up the beautiful Brookton Highway, come a weekend afternoon. My husband and I have driven away the hours on one of our many "Sanity saving bog-laps" around the picturesque streets of Roleystone. Which is most likely why, in our dream-hazed state, we took so long to discover the beautiful Borrello Park.

This is a lovely space. Pulling up we were welcomed by the most glorious tree (known by our scientific name for it…Enourmiacus Treeanatas) which was begging for a climbing. The playground equipment caters to both the very young and older children, offering a good range of choice and a whole lotta fun.

There is an "old-school" fort complete with a bridge that crosses over a flowing brook below. Exploring the other side we found some "nature nooks" perfect for mudpie making or a little temporary cubby! My son enjoyed wading in the very shallow water in the warmer months and watching his leaf boats float downstream in the cooler weather.

There is a large open area opposite the park that leads to a gazebo and at the right time of day is a photographers paradise.

Another rare thing about Borrello Park is that we are always alone and are yet to visit when it's packed with people, though it's most likely a popular spot for picnickers on warm weekends and during school holidays.

Clean, fresh, open and free. It's worth the drive.
