Bollygum Playground

by Lorraine A (follow)


Bollygum playground would easily have to rate as one of the top 10 playgrounds in Victoria, if not Australia. It's a big call, but there is something truly unique and inspiring about this community play space that locals and visitors adore.



You see, Bollygum playground rose from the ashes after the devastating fires that swept through Kinglake in 2009. Most residents were left without a home and part of the healing process for locals was being involved in this community project.

It was decided that the playground would be based on the best-selling children's book 'Bollygum' by Garry Fleming. The book is a tale of friendship between Australian native animals that help return a lost possum home. Throughout the park there are references to the book, with giant pages to read and wooden sculptures of Wombat and all his friends.



The variety of play equipment is outstanding and includes net swings, toddler/kids swings, many slides, wooden adventure climbing frame, sand pit, cubby house, bridges, rope ladders, fishing rods, diggers and much,much more.



Facilities include a small amphitheatre, a shelter, BBQ's, picnic tables, park benches, toilets with disabled access and car park.

The playground is located at 40 Whittlesea-Kinglake Rd, Kinglake.
