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.
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.
