Being based in the Yarra Valley gives me locality to so much beauty, culture and activity while still being only an hour away from Melbourne. Please join me with my adventures locally and wherever else my travels take me!

Is this possibly the best park for kids of all ages?
Yes, I think it may actually be!

Montrose Playground and Park



With its wonderful playground suited to all ages, quirky and artistic miniature buildings scattered throughout and plenty of room for a picnic, Montrose Park is one of the best free family orientated places to visit.

Cute and Arty Shop Fronts!



Montrose Community Park and Recreation Reserve is located at 950 Mount Dandenong Tourist Road in Montrose.

Montrose is situated at the beginning of the Mount Dandenong Tourist Road which leads to the beauty of the Dandenongs.

It is also close to the gateway of the picturesque Yarra Valley and is approximately a 40-kilometre drive from the heart of Melbourne.

Slide Fun!



The miniature buildings are very popular and a great little shady spot for the kids to take a time out from their adventures on the play equipment!

Spinning fun!



The playground has lots to keep the young ones active and amused.

Slides, Swings, Climbing Activities, Ramps and Spinners are all spread throughout the park as is the main walkway which connects a lot of the equipment.

Beautiful painted miniature buildings are everywhere!



There are numerous picnic benches placed throughout the park as well as lawn areas to put down a picnic rug and set up your base while visiting!

Lots of Equipment



The Montrose shopping strip is a five-minute walk down the path, while Hahndorf's Fine Chocolates is a 2-minute walk up the path.

Both of these options are quite handy!

There are substantial car parking spots and Toilet Amenities are also located at the Park.

If you are visiting later in the afternoon and you have the time to do so, I would suggest a drive up Mt Dandenong Rd to the Sky High lookout point to view the Sunset. Alternatively, the views are still amazing from up there at any time of day so it is well worth a visit either way!

Swings are always popular!



In summary, as an avid park goer over the years with my children, I would rate this park as a 10/10 for layout, space, design, location and fun!
