Frankston Waterfront Playground

by Lorraine A (follow)

Apart from having one of the cleanest beaches in Victoria, Frankston also has a pretty good waterfront picnic/BBQ area and playground that is perfect to visit on a nice summer's day.

Pack a picnic and take the kids along to the Frankston waterfront for a walk along the pier, a frolic along the sandy shores, a walk along the trail/boardwalk, a picnic overlooking the bay and a play in the playground.

The playground although old is still in good condition and is based on the theme of sand-castles emerging from, and collapsing into the beach due to its proximity to the water's edge. The grounds here are large and consist of two main play areas surrounded lush green grass.

The two main areas consist of a toddlers section and a more challenging junior section. Both are wooden structures and offer climbing frames, ladders, lots of ramps, wave slides, tunnel slide, chain bridges, flying foxes, fireman pole. Other play equipment in between the larger structures includes monkey bars, net swings, toddlers/kids swings, a large sandpit, wooden boat and a liberty swing.

Whilst the main play structures aren't shaded, the swings, sand pit and picnic areas are covered by shade sails and there are a few trees that provide some shade.

Facilities include: car parking, public toilets with change facilities, BBQ's, picnic tables, water fountains, a cafe and information centre.

My only gripes about this playground is that on weekends it can become especially busy, making it difficult to keep an eye on children if you have more than one and second is ticked parking.

Overall however, I think the Frankston waterfront playground is well worth a visit and I think most families will enjoy some time here.

The playground is located in the Pier Promenade, Frankston VIC (accessed via the Nepean Highway).
