Murrumbeena playground


Discover the brand new Murrumbeena Park these school holidays. Your kids will love discovering all that is hidden within the playground that is suitable from toddlers up.

Our kids gave it a test run and the reviews were impressive, with so much play equipment to climb, swing, slide and run around they certainly didn't get bored and as soon as we got in the car the question "When can we go back?" was asked within minutes.



From a parent's perspective this park is well set out, firstly because it's fenced from the road, has toilets, shaded areas to sit under, 4 BBQ's, water, parking right out the front, sporting ovals behind it, all ability play equipment and two distinct play areas so the toddlers are catered for.

Flying fox


As for the play equipment it's difficult to know where to start, perhaps with the favourites, which were the flying fox closely followed by the climbing web and a contraption that looks a bit like a buoy out on the bay that's perched on a frame and swings in all directions.



In the toddlers area there is a small, low climbing frame with a slide, steering wheel, cubby house, swings, a maze, wooden bridge, naughts and crosses along with other things.

Part of the toddlers area


In the main area there is a rock climbing hill, swings, a twister slide, a dual slide, rope bridge, slide on a hill side, flying fox and spider web climbing frame.

Part of the bigger play area


The park has a lovely atmosphere with landscaped gardens, fun sculptures, a dry river bed running along most of the length of the playground which also includes a wooden bridge crossing it. A nice sheltered BBQ areas with tables and chairs and best of all lush green grass to sit and picnic under the deciduous trees.



Facilities include:
Playground, sporting fields, walking track, along with the previously mentioned toilet, BBQ's, shelters with tables and chairs, water, and parking out the front on Kangaroo Rd.



It's also possible to hire the Joey rotunda through the Glen Eira City council for birthday parties. For more information call the booking officer on 95243333 (fees apply).



So grab a picnic, get the kids and a few of their friends together and enjoy discovering the all new Murrumbeena Park.
