Wyreena Community Playspace

by Lorraine A (follow)
A quick google search of Croydon playgrounds won't uncover this gem of a playground nor will popular playground lists. Type in the specific name and you will eventually find some information on it, but It's definitely one those places that requires word of mouth to initially discover it.

Less than 40 minutes travelling from Melbourne's CBD via the Ringwood bypass will have you at this delightful playground which also has a cafe and Community Art Centre.

The playground was built at the beginning of 2016 to replace the older style playground and has been very popular with the locals since reopening, according to one mum I spoke to.

Naturally as the playground shares its grounds with the Wyreena Community Arts Centre you will find lots of interesting detail in the playground and some lovely sculptures. I particularly liked the metal birds that could be spun 360 degrees, the clay birds on the fence and along the edge of the path as well as the timber carvings.

Wyreena playspace is a perfect toddler playground, it's secure, has some low equipment, soft fall matting and chip bark, lots of lovely shaded areas with nice picnic tables, a little 'jungle tree' area to explore and older kids aren't likely to visit this playground so it's pretty much perfect for littlies.

Equipment includes: a double wave slide, a tunnel slide, a toddler slide, 4 swings (one baby swing, one all-ability swing), a seesaw, a rocker, musical stompers, fireman's pole and more.

With the Conservatory cafe overlooking the playground it would be one of the best mother's group parks that I could think of. The cafe is very reasonably priced but can be very popular so it's advised to book a table if you wish to have a meal there.

The low down: Wyreena playspace is located at 13-23 Hull Rd Croydon. Toilets are only accessible during business hours. Plenty of car parking is available on site.

The workshop will include Welcome, group demonstrations of silk painting, artefact burning and a talk by Judith Young on the protocols recognised by various Aboriginal communities.
