HOT: Safari Park, Werribee

Kids will go wild at the Safari Park Werribee playground, one of two play spaces slated for the new Cornerstone residential estate.

The playground is inspired by the residents of nearby Werribee Zoo. It’s also been designed by the developer PEET with the help of Mamma Knows West, who visit enough playgrounds to really know their stuff!

See how many African animals you can spot inside the bright space, from the large rhino climbing frame…

Almost everything is set out with tan bark or soft fall flooring and punctuated with rainbow painted tree trunks.

The Safari Park playground is set within a big grassy area, with lots of room for running around and some small soccer goals. Along the fenceline you’ll also be able to see the construction work happening through the animal peepholes.

There are picnic shelters but otherwise the playground is uncovered, making it susceptible to strong winds and hot sun. Hopefully when some of the vegetation grows there will be windbreaks and some shade.

There are no toilets or fences, though the playground is set well away from the street. Free parking is available on street.

If you still have energy there’s a free gated jumping pillow next to the the Cornerstone Sales and Information Centre at 383 Black Forest Road, Werribee. Note it’s only open for limited hours when the office is open.
