The best new Peninsula playground
Rosebud Foreshore Playground

The all new Rosebud Foreshore Playground has been officially opened and is an absolute hit with the summer crowds! The kids love it, the parents love it ... in fact they were having just as much fun as the kids were on the 'mountain' slide and the grandparents were giggling with amusement watching their grown up children and their grandchildren having so much fun.

We wanted to get in on the action and be one of the first to visit the playground. The weather was overcast with some showers and was quite cold but that didn't seem to deter anyone. The longer we were there, the more people came and the more fun was had by all.

The play equipment is fantastic, the views are sensational and the facilities are all that you need to enjoy a BBQ overlooking the water whilst the kids are playing happily.

My kids (aged between 4 - 10yo) were thoroughly entertained with the play equipment and we could have easily spent half a day there between the beach and the playground had the weather been better. The kids really enjoyed the 'mountain slide', the long flying fox, the spinning disc, the climbing nets and just running up and down the mounds.

The new playground is located on the water's edge next to the Rosebud pier and was built as part of the "Destination Rosebud" campaign to attract even more tourism to the area and provide the locals with a much-needed play space.

Out of all the playgrounds on the Mornington Peninsula, I would say this one is the best without a doubt and I can't wait to take the kids back on a sunny day.

Facilities include: three BBQ's, three picnic tables, 2 shelters, toilets with disability access, bike stations, plenty of bench seating, limited car parking (maybe 20 spaces) but plenty located a short stroll away, a walking path that stretches kilometres in either direction and a cafe about 50m from the playground.

You will find the playground at the end of Jetty Rd in Rosebud.

* My tip is to make sure you take sturdy shoes with plenty of grip for the kids as the steep hills can be slippery (especially when wet), take a towel in case the weather becomes inclement so you can dry the swings and slide and last but not least, make sure you pack some bathers and sunscreen.

Have Fun!
