Get fit, exercise the pooch and play with the children
Sherlock Family Playground

Keeping on my theme of playgrounds in Mornington/Mt Martha, here is another popular park for the whole family, including pooches.

This park offers a range of activities depending on age, fitness level, and if you have a four legged friend.

My children love the playground with its little cubby house to sell ice creams from (in the form of chip bark). The tractor can take you to the farm to get your veggies (with some imagination), and apple boxes are available to climb your way up to the slide.

You will also find two sets of swings, see saw, rocking horses, climbing net, and much more.

It's great for exercising, with a running/walking track complete with exercise stations and instructions on how to use each station correctly. This park is popular with boot camp training and personal training sessions.

For the pooches there is a fully fenced leash free area, approximately 1 acre in size complete with obstacles and training stations.

As for facilities there are toilets, running water, car parking, and shelter with tables and barbecue.

The shelter can be popular for birthday parties. This park is great all year round, but it's very open to the elements so on really windy days I prefer Balcombe reserve playground where it's sheltered from the wind.
