I recently visited the Kingsway Regional Playground with my two children aged three and five and some friends. We all absolutely loved it. Whenever we go on a bush walk my three year old boy creeps around excitedly saying, "This is dinosaur land." When he saw this park he jumped about excitedly saying. "It's my dream come true!"

Main Features

1. Nature play park with bark chips, logs, native plants and natural shade.

2. Dinosaur footprint trail leading up the path to sand where "dinosaur bones" are buried.

3. Big dinosaur to climb on. It is quite high though and I struggled to help my kids onto it as I have a bad shoulder.

4. Paths for scooters.

5. Long stepping stones course made out of round logs .

6. Slide on a soft surface bumpy mountain. It didn't look that exciting to me, but was very popular with the kids.

7. Amazing huge hammock swing that swings and spins in every direction. Beware however as it has a very wide range and can catch you unawares if you're not paying attention. I saw one toddler get hit by it, luckily it wasn't going too high at the time. My five year old loved this swing, and it was popular with older kids too.

8. Musical area similar to the Yokine Reserve.

9. Bouncy see-saw for four kids, and spinning disc for one child (or adult!) to sit on.

10. Big spinning wheel that several kids can sit on together.

11. Duck pond close by.

12. Toilets close by.

13. Fenced in except for the gates.

14. Big grassy oval nearby.

15. Plenty of parking (there is some parking on the street beside it and there is a carpark nearby).


1. Not too many places to sit for a picnic within the park. There are only a couple of grassy areas but the grassy oval is just outside.

2. The nearby toilets are quite basic. There was so soap or paper the day we were there, so remember to take tissue paper and wipes. I'm not sure if there were baby change facilities.


Just off Kingsway, beside the Kingsway Indoor Stadium and Kingsway Regional Sports Centre.
