Ballam Park is double the fun!

The Eastern side wooden playground is a favourite with Frankston/Mornington Peninsula toddlers and babies, with an extensive network of ramps, climbing equipment and slides. The natural shade from the surrounding trees provide perfect picnic spots, as well as a sheltered picnic table and water taps.

On the Western side of the park the council has just upgraded the ageing equipment to transform the area into a fantastic skate park and adventure playground suitable for older children.

It’s so new that in fact only the skate park, swings and some parkour equipment are open at the moment while the finishing touches are put on the main structure (due to reopen 4 April).

The skate park includes a basketball/multi-use court with climbing and rebound wall…
