The newly-opened Woodbridge Riverside Play Space is a delight for the senses and it's different to all the other playgrounds you've visited in Perth.
The concept of the plan was to create a playground for people of all abilities whether they be small, bigger, in wheelchairs or able bodied. And the result is a wonderful space for everyone.
Here are five of the best things you'll find there:
1. Flying Foxes Before visiting the Woodbridge Riverside Play Space, I hadn't seen a flying fox in years. This playground has two for different ability levels. For the younger or less able, there's a seat complete with seatbelt.

2. Signing signs Little details at this playground give it a wonderful sense of community. I like the 'how to sign' signs that you see around the grounds. They're a nice touch and inspiring for curious minds.

3. Equipment for wheelchairs and people with special needs Everyone can have a play at the Woodbridge Riverside Play Space. There's a whizzy dizzy that fits two wheelchairs in it, a special wheelchair swing and this 'sway fun' ride that suits lots of abilities.

4. Native plants I liked the very natural feel of the design of this park. It's in stark contrast to all the bright colours you get elsewhere. The Kangaroo Paws that are inside and outside the fence are stunning.

Not enough parking facilities especially during wknd or school holiday. Be careful parking if not in parking lot as city of swan is fast to give parking fine tickets. Great park but after my fine I will never go there again.
The signs are in Makaton a simple word sign language used for intellectally disabled people with poor word articulation. Great if everyone can learn it as you can then start to'talk' to these individuals in schools and community. Simple and logical.
