Albert Park Community Playground

by Adventures with ACE (follow)
If you’re looking for a playground where adventure and the imagination can go wild, Albert Park Community Playground ticks all the boxes.



This huge wooden fort is what childhood dreams are made of. The entire structure came together through the beauty of community spirit back in the mid 90’s and even though it’s now pushing the quarter century, you certainly wouldn’t know it - the playground is well-built and wonderfully maintained.



There are turrets, bridges and walkways, as well as musical chimes and monkey rings, and of course some of the more standard playground fare like slides, swings and a sandpit. Also with plenty of hidey holes and nooks and crannies, trust me when I say, the kids will be entertained for hours.

With the Melbourne city skyline in the background and Albert Park Lake just over the horizon, the playground caters to a broad range of ages from toddlers to the older kids and best of all, the whole family can really make a day of it here. There are picnic tables, seating and undercover electric BBQ’s available for public use.



Or, if you haven’t packed the picnic hamper, walk a couple of hundred metres to Mart 130 for lunch (situated at Middle Park station on the number 96 tram line), or go a little further over Canterbury Road to the Middle Park Hotel or some of the fantastic restaurants and cafes on Armstrong Street.



Hot tip: If you’re driving, the best parking can be found next to the Middle Park Bowling Club – there is an access point from Canterbury Road via a small, blink-and-you'll-miss-it underpass (just as you approach the pedestrian lights opposite the intersection of Armstrong Street and Canterbury Road).

Features:
• Suitable for toddlers to older children
• Electric BBQ’s for public use
• Picnic tables and seating
• Some natural shade plus shade sails
• Away from roads and car traffic
• Toilet facilities
• plus lots of grassed area for the picnic blankets.
