A small playground with lots to do for the little ones
Perth is home to hundreds of small, suburban parks aimed at getting the kids outside in an age when the average backyard has shrunk dramatically.
Frye Park in Kelmscott is one such park. It is located at the Frye Park Pavilion, just off Albany Highway in a largely suburban area, and it's clearly popular with the locals, with lots of parents and families coming and going in the short space of time we were there.
The main playground features a pirate ship design, complete with the opportunity to walk the plank. For a small playground, there are plenty of things to do, including a separate, largely fenced toddler area with swings, small play structure, sensory play and a rocker.
My daughter's favourite thing about this playground was the 'kid powered energy' music player – simply turn the knob quickly (parents of toddlers will need to give them a hand) until there's enough power generated and have a dance to the funky music!
