HOT: Rye’s Up Community Playground, Rye

Rye's Up Community Playground, 2387A Point Nepean Rd, Rye, Mornington Peninsula

If you’re visiting to the Mornington Peninsula don’t miss one of our favourite beach playgrounds on Rye’s foreshore east of Rye Pier. Rye’s Up Community Playground is a wooden adventure playground built by locals in 2012 and is great fun especially when the water’s too cold for swimming.

The fully fenced playground sits next to Rye Beach and thus has a seaside theme. The playground is in the shape of a boat’s hull and numerous wooden forts making up the ship’s deck have signs such as ‘Bait Shack’, wooden marine animals attached to the walls and lots of portholes where kids can pretend to be mermaids or divers.
