Situated in Keysborough is Parkmore Shopping Centre.
Parkmore has been around for a very long time and over the years, they have added new shops and food places, but have always kept its original charm and never tried to modernise it and make it super fancy, which I love.
Here at Parkmore, you will find many great shops such as Kmart, Big W, Miller's, EB Games, Spoils, and more. There is something for everyone at this centre and the place isn't too big that you'll get lost.
If it is food you're after, the food court must be checked out! You won't find your everyday takeaway shops here, aside from McDonald's, but there is plenty of great quality choices such as kebabs, fried rice, fish and chips, fresh sandwiches, Indian food, bakery sweets among others.
My favourite cafe at Parkmore is just off the food court called The Red Balloon, which serves amazing food like chicken schnitzel sandwiches, beef rolls, spaghetti, lasagne and more. The prices are very reasonable and the quality is always divine.
Having been going to Parkmore since I was a kid, it has always been a pleasant experience. The best part about this centre is the fact that there's is tons of parking and you will never have to fight for a space, not even around Christmas time or school holidays. Parking is free too.
Just outside of Kmart, there is a small playground for kids to play on if they need a break. It is quite spacious and gated to keep kids safe.
The only downfall that Parkmore has is that there is no entertainment places for kids and teens to utilise on weekends or school holidays. I believe if they added a cinema, bowling, or video game arcade, it would be a lot better and more people would flock to the centre. In saying that - who knows if it's a possibility for the future.
I would recommend Parkmore to people who prefer a low key shopping centre that still has plenty to offer. You will always find a close enough park, the staff are very friendly, and there is a lot of choice.
