Eastern Park Playground (Ryrie Street Side), East Geelong

Published July 27th 2015
My children are always on the lookout for new parks and playgrounds in and around the Geelong area, so when they spotted some play equipment in the grass reserve area next to Geelong High School, they begged me to stop so that they could have a play.



When we arrived, we found that while the park itself is fairly small, it has a good range of play equipment, and the kids loved it. There are large monkey bars and climbing equipment designed for older children, and also a smaller swing and slide - perfect for toddlers and younger children.

It also has one of the popular round swings that are appearing in more and more playgrounds these days.



The car park is accessible by turning left into Holt street from Ryrie street, as you drive out of Geelong. After a short distance, turn left again, along the short, unsealed road. Car parking is free, and the car park was almost empty when we visited. In the surrounding area, there are rubbish bins, some seats and a toilet block. There is also a small undercover area with a table and seating.


Overall, this is a good playground to stop at, especially if you're looking to explore more of the Eastern Park area, which includes the Eastern Park circuit, Geelong Botanic Gardens, and Eastern Beach.

Some tips:
For those with young children or children that wander, please note that the playground and surrounding areas are not fenced, and Ryrie street (which is quite a busy road) is nearby.

According to an information sign at the park, dogs are permitted in the area, but must be on a lead within 10 metres of the playgrounds, picnic and barbeque areas. The sign also specifies that no motorbikes, alcohol or fires are permitted.
