Sensory play surrounded by beautiful natural bushland
When my sister got married at Piney Lakes in Winthrop early last year, that was my one and only trip to this lovely park until now. I didn't actually know there was a kids' playground there either.

A very old kids playground, I might add, that has now been updated and modernised, although remnants of the old playground are still dotted around the park.

Piney Lakes is made up of bushland and parkland and has a lovely lake and fountain sitting adjacent to the playground – as lovely as it is, it's best to keep a watchful eye over little children, especially the ones who love to bolt, like mine.

The playground is sprawled over three sections – there's a sensory play area with a huge tepee, igloo, sandpit, water play and a bridge over a little lake. Watch out for the loose rocks, as children can slip over and fall, or throw the rocks – hopefully not at each other.

You'll find a couple of sets of swings, including one with an accessible seat and also a tripod swing.

The old wooden bridge and ramp still remain, and now leads to a new, modern rope play structure with a shade cloth and soft padding underneath. The old tyre play section is still intact.

There are a number of picnic tables to park yourself and the kids at, plus toilets just outside the playground. There is no café at Piney Lakes, and the nearest is a bit of a drive at the Brentwood Shops on Moolyeen Road or at Bull Creek Shopping Centre on South Street.

Piney Lakes is a gorgeous place to visit and now there is even more reason for parents to come down and visit the brand new play space.
