Woodlea Playground, <a href=

 Woodlea is a new housing estate at Rockbank, in Melbourne’s outer north-west. It’s currently only a display village but the first stage of development features an awesome adventure playground and fabulous adjoining cafe called ‘Go West’ (more on that later). The idea is that this central park will provide a community hub for people to gather once the houses start going up.
