The glorious city views across Port Phillip Bay are just the same! Enjoy them while swinging high on the nest swing!

The new design was developed with local families and residents and North Brighton Rotary.

The wooden ship has activities suitable for kids of all ages – there are shaded nooks for hiding, slides and challenging rope climbs.

Smaller kids will enjoy the rocking yellow boat and the little spinning cup. The main play space is covered in soft mat flooring, handy for crawlers and toddlers.

Make sure you take bathers and a towel for the water play area as the sprinklers will be too hard to resist! The sprinklers are activated by the seesaws.

The three in-ground trampolines are very popular.

When you get hungry or need to lure kids away from the playground with the promise of ice cream, North Point Café is across the road. You can have a sit-down meal or just grab some take away from the kiosk window. The public toilets are also in that block.

While the playground is not directly on the beach the walking/bike path along the bay will take you straight to the sand and water!
