Bundoora Park Playspace is a fully-fenced and accessible playground for all abilities located in Bundoora Park, the largest green space in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.
From the winding driveway leading to Bundoora Park Playspace you can actually spy two different and smaller playgrounds before you arrive at the main carpark for the Bundoora Park Visitors Centre and Cafe. So don’t get distracted!
The playspace offers play equipment for babies to school kids and is probably best for under 10s.
It’s spread out over a large area, with water taps, picnic shelters and several barbecues integrated within the play area. The flooring is a mix of tan bark and soft fall and the vegetation provides natural cover as well as sun sails over the sandpit.
A lot of the play equipment references the urban farm, heritage village and local wildlife.. Highlights of the play equipment include:
….a red tractor….
….a slide slipping out of a water tank…
….a wheelchair accessible merry-go-round with native animals on it….
….a large sandpit with digger…
….a spider’s web…
….the timber maze where you’ll find a farm visitor!
There seems to be a water play area with a hand pump and some jets on the sand table but it was all turned off during our visit, I’m not sure whether temporarily or permanently.
As the playground adjoins the Bundoora Park Visitors Centre and Cafe so there are several toilets, some with change facilities.
