Mooroolbark's newest playground: installed in 2012
Out with the old and in with the new: this innovative playground on Brice Avenue, Mooroolbark, was installed in 2012 after the tired old playground was demolished.
Older kids will love climbing up the rope ladders on the main equipment and squealing their way down the twirly slide. You won't need to worry about littlies trying to climb up after their older siblings, as they won't be able to make it past the first step.
Where older sibling goes, younger sibling may not follow
For the younger ones, there are coloured blobs to practise their climbing skills over as well as a little rocking kangaroo.
There'll be no waiting in line for a free swing with four standard swings available (two with toddler bucket seats and straps) as well as a huge rotating bucket swing which will fit several squirming kids at once.

The see-saws will really impress with a sunny see-saw which goes up and down and round and round. Grab your friends and try out the four-way see-saw, or give the swinging log a go.

The playground is just a few metres from the Mooroolbark shops and railway station, or ample parking is available at the park itself.
Pack a picnic and plan to stay a while as sheltered barbecue and picnic facilities are available on-site, as well as public toilets.
