If you’re visiting Frankston Beach with kids don’t miss the Frankston Regional Foreshore Playground, an imaginative adventure playground that’s affectionately known as the ‘castle playground’.
The setting is part fairy tower, part Dracula’s castle, and there’s so much fun to be had that it’s a worthy drawcard away from the stunning sandy beach just a few metres away.
The playground contains numerous castles, forts, a sandpit with digger, numerous swings (including a Liberty swing), slides, climbing frames, monkey bars, flying fox. There’s even a pirate ship!
Note there are separate play spaces for toddlers and older kids so no one misses out.
The surrounding trees also make for perfect climbing structures!
A bonus is that it is shaded over the sandpit and the turrets provide a little shade within the play equipment.
The site’s picnic areas and barbecue facilities, as well its proximity to the beach, make Frankston Regional Foreshore Playground one of the most popular playgrounds in Frankston. On weekends it can be crowded with locals and visitors, so best to visit on a weekday. Parking can also be difficult on weekends and summer school holidays.
