Brand new adventure park in Wellard is sure to impress
Every playground I visit with my little girl seems to have something that makes it unique to the rest, and the brand new adventure park at Wellard is no different.
This awesome playground was completed in mid-2016 and features a number of great attractions for kids, including a 7.3 metre high climbing tower that is only accessible by rope ladders, lots of rope play, including my favourite – rope hammocks, and a BMX and skate park. Clearly a slide and a set of monkey bars are no longer enough.
There are three swings, all of which have a back bar covered in garden hose material. That's different. I was a bit disappointed that there is no swing for the younger kids, but there is a small slide that smaller children will enjoy.
Up the hill from the rope play is the four-storey climbing tower. Each level is accessible by rope ladders and the slide is located on the second level of the structure.
Part of the park is set among natural bush, with picnic tables and a barbeque located within the park. There is a fantastic BMX and skate track, so don't forget to take the kids' bikes or skateboards along so they can check it out.
Parking around the playground is limited. The park is a short walk from the Wellard Square Shopping Centre, where there is more parking and food and coffee outlets, plus toilets and baby change facilities.
This new adventure playground is sure to impress kids of all ages with its ingenuity, great play structures and space to zip around on the BMX or skateboard.
