Playground fun!


Nestled in amongst the Chirnside Park Estate is this quiet little reserve and playground, which is situated just off of Maroondah Highway in Chirnside Park and is easy to find.

A great little playground!


This one is ideal for younger kids not wanting the hustle and bustle of a big hugely populated park and playground The larger parks can be a lot of fun, but there are just some times that a smaller more compact area is better suited to your families needs. There are also some kids who just don't cope as well with the crowds and that is why a park like this one is a more suitable option.

A beautiful shady spot!


This Park and Playground houses all of the usual favourites such as swings, slides, a multitude of stepping and climbing equipment, as well as a good old see-saw.

Climb Away!


Another great feature of this playground is the climbing rope frame, which is also a whizzy dizzy!

Climb and Spin!


I did indeed try this along with the kids and it sure does create dizziness - well, it certainly did in my case, although the kids did not seem to mind it so much!

Swings are always popular!


There are lots of lovely shady areas, as well as seating and picnic benches. There is also plenty of room to lay down a picnic rug and settle in for a nice stay.

Basketball Area


The Reserve is beautifully and simply landscaped, with lots of rocks placed around the natural and native gardens. Some of the larger rocks are also great to use as additional seating while watching your younglings play and use up some of their energy!



A good sized Basketball court is a handy addition as is the large patch of land attached to the Park which is ideal for a kick of the footy or soccer ball or even a little match of cricket!

All in all, this little reserve is a wonderful spot for a little picnic, play or get together.
