More family friendly fun than you can imagine
Hidden away behind the Rowville Community Centre and behind the tennis and basketball courts is an amazing adventure playground.

Colourful and plentiful equipment.

There is so much equipment here from toddler slides and swings to flying foxes, high fireman's (fireperson's?) poles and net swings. The inclusion of equipment suited for multiple ages and abilities makes it a fantastic outing for family groups.

The main section of the park has a number of raised sections accessed by stairs, ramps or climbing nets. There is a high climbing wall, speak and listen equipment and several slides. There are also multiple swing sets in the park of the toddler and big kid variety.

High and low equipment at the park.

Other great inclusions are a music station with multiple musical instruments, a cubby house area, sandpit and some little bouncy bridges for smaller kids.

The playground has plenty of shaded areas and is set into a bit of a hill so it has a couple of levels. As it is not fenced, this can make keeping an eye on smaller children a bit of a challenge at times. However, the playground is well set back from the road on most sides, with some picnic tables near the car park so if you are concerned about escapees around cars you could set yourself up here.

Something to please every kid.

There are a lot of seats provided at the park, picnic tables and barbeques as well as public toilets on the higher level. The park is also very close to Stud Park Shopping Centre where additional toilets can be found as well as multiple coffee shops for those in need!

Although the park itself is not brand new, there are some really lovely touches here, which are becoming more common in modern park redevelopments, such as a water fountain set into a mosaic fish, nice decorative paving and some carved logs. There is also a bit of a creek bed to one side to aid nature play.

This is easily the best playground in the immediate area and one that is well worth a visit.
