Excited children's voices greet my ears when I arrive at the Eltham North Adventure Playground. Set amongst stunning, eucalyptus trees the main play area is built in a massive shed. Inside, it's a bit like a maze with plenty of walkways, steps, tunnels, ladders and ramps leading to play areas. 'Fun bits' include a flying fox, springers, monkey bars, a fireman's pole, a climbing wall and balance beam. The area most in demand on the day I was there was the climbing wall, which provides a great way to get in and out of the main play area.
The climbing wall on the outside provides an interesting way to get into the main play area.
There is a Liberty Swing which is an accessible swing for people in wheelchairs or those with limited mobility. It's locked for security, but you can find out where you can pick the keys up by clicking here.

It's the perfect place for a family day out. The giant 'cubbyhouse' means that there is a sheltered play area if rain decides to visit while you're there. Barbeques, drinking fountains and accessible toilets are provided.
