Let the kids loose in a Dr Seuss playground
Built on the old Melville Primary School site, Kadidjiny Park is located on the corner of Curtis and Kitchener Streets in Melville. Within the park you'll find plenty of curved red and white poles which has given the park the nickname of the 'Dr. Seuss Playground'.

One of the first things you'll notice about the park are the uneven grounds and the hilly mounds which make it look like you're standing in a scene straight out of Teletubbies. However, these lumps and bumps in the ground, with paved walkways weaving throughout it, makes it the perfect venue for riding scooters, playing chasey or just enjoying a casual stroll.

Kadidjiny comes from the Aboriginal Noongar word meaning 'learning, thinking, listening', which is an apt name for the park as there isn't a lot of play equipment but more open space where kids can be more imaginative and create their own games.

In a fenced off area at the end of the park is a sensory playground. In here kids will find slides, swings, diggers, spinning platforms and more. There is a small conveyer belt machine for the kids to operate and use it shift sand from one area to another.

The horizontal web and doughnut swing are other popular pieces of play equipment in the sensory playground area.

For the parents, there are plenty of benches both inside the fenced play area and within the park and there are electric BBQs for use which also makes the area popular for birthday parties. There are drinking fountains and million dollar toilets for your use too.

Grab your family, the scooters, frisbees and the balls and head down to Dr. Seuss Playground and let the kid's imagination run wild while they enjoy their unstructured play at Kadidjiny Park.
