We stumbled across the Montrose Community Playground by chance on Good Friday, after completing a walk in the Dandenong Ranges.
What a find! This park is an absolute child's wonderland, built entirely by volunteers in the local area. What an achievement for the hard work everyone involved put in. This park will be popular for many years to come with locals and visitors alike.
I would rate this park as my number one pick for variety of play equipment and it caters extremely well for all age groups. It was hard to coax my children back into the car. "mum can we come back again tomorrow and can I have my birthday here?"
Unfortunately, well for me anyway, this park is about 1 hour and 20 minutes from home.
