The park with the works and then some
Located on Opie Road in Deer Park is the Isabella Williams Memorial Reserve. If your kids are looking for a park with the works in the north west suburbs of Melbourne, this is it.
The park features three different slides, including a super dooper long slide my kids were simply flying off of and a yellow covered twisted slide, two swing sets for younger and older children, climbing walls, cargo nets, sand pit, bouncey red ride-on tractor, and a fun bird's nest swing.
Three different slides: yellow covered twisted slide, super long slide and medium size slide
A Comment from a local: the park is indeed worth visiting, with a variety of activities for all ages (there is also an adjacent workout/fitness area) and a picturesque Aboriginal reserve called Ballum Ballum (just follow the Kororoit Creek to your left).
