A little playground that is great for small children
I may have discovered Perth's smallest playground. Sure, Perth has plenty of huge parks and playing fields with a little climbing frame tacked on the side, but they don't count as playgrounds. This is an actual playground, and one that is so small, even my three year old referred to it as a small playground and everything looks big to a three year old.

Lions Park in Armadale is located within a short walk of Armadale Primary School and across the road from the Pioneer Village. Did I mention that it is small?

Lions Park has a bike track.


Well, it may be small but it's still got some fantastic features. First of all, it's in the middle of an idyllic little natural space, nestled between Albany Highway and a group of houses.

A great spot for little children learning to ride a bike.


Then there's the bike and scooter track, complete with a roundabout, stop signs and arrows, plus petrol pumps. My daughter thought these were the coolest things I couldn't drag her away from 'filling up' her little bike. The path is also suitable for prams and wheelchairs.

The little petrol pump was a big hit!


There's also an outdoor play kitchen, which is a unique idea for a playground and I can't say I've seen anything similar. There is a stove and sink for the little ones to cook up an imaginary storm, and then wash those imaginary dishes.

The playground has an accessible swing.


Lions Park has a set of two swings, one of which is accessible for all abilities and has a harness for safety. You will also find a couple of drums for the kids to crash and bash about on.

Surrounded by nature.


There are even toilets, drinking water and baby change facilities at the park, which is surprising given most bigger parks don't even offer this level of amenities.

A play kitchen!


Lions Park has a little creek running adjacent to it with a bridge over the top. The creek is great for older kids who might like to see what they can spot living in the water, but keep an eye on little kids around the water as it is only partially fenced. The bridge leads to an underpass which runs right under Albany Highway and over to the Pioneer Village. Along with looking in the creek, the kids can also explore the natural surrounds and see what sort of little beasties they can find.

There is also musical play.


There is limited parking directly next to the park but there is a bigger car park just a short walk away.

A small playground with some big features.


It may be small, but Lions Park has some big things going for it. If you're in the area, be sure to have a look and take the bikes and scooters for a whizz around the path.
