Booran Reserve, Glenhuntly

by Adventures with ACE (follow)
Melboune's best playground in the South?

Is this Melbourne’s best playground? Glen Eira City Council has put money on it - $10.8 million to be exact!

Only opened since April of this year, Booran Reserve really caters to all of the senses and kids of all ages will go wild for it. There is just so much to see and do, in a relatively moderate space that you could spend hours here, if not the entire day really. And best of all? It’s FREE!

On the site of on old reservoir, the park and community space gives a nod to its history with water theming throughout. We’re talking a huge water play area (bring bathers and towels for the warmer months), water pumps, fountains, dry creek beds and old machinery in the forms of sculptures.

Not only will you go for the water play, but there’s nature play, sand play and of course, general play, in the forms of swings, slides, roundabouts, trampolines, climbing walls, tunnels, and that’s seriously just the beginning.

The playground also boasts a 10-metre high, double dome rope climbing structure for the bigger kids and a giant birds-nest swing for young adventurers.
And don’t forget the double flying fox, the two-tier sand pit, horizontal climbing ropes, twisty slide and a super mouse wheel. Phew!



Aesthetically, it’s a beautiful, natural space, with plenty of young trees, rocks and grasses amongst the play equipment, as well as grassed areas to set up the picnic rug. Add to that covered BBQ areas and picnic tables and they’ve just about thought of everything.

Booran Reserve is seriously a playground on the next level, it’s awesome and is well worth a visit, or ten. Just not on school holidays or peak weekend times - at the moment anyway! It might be the new-kid-on-the-block factor, but we think it’s most likely because the playground is the bomb. This place is heaving and we wouldn’t be expecting it to slow down anytime soon. Don’t let that stop you though, there’s plenty of playground for everyone!

Pro’s
• See above! Too many to list.

Con’s
• It’s busy!
• It’s not fenced. This doesn’t mean it’s not safe, but it’s on the corner of two busy roads and whilst there’s plenty of space between the equipment and the roads it does feel … open!
• Parking is available on the surrounding roads, but it’s limited so on busy days you’d be best to use public transport

Features
• Sheltered picnic tables and BBQs
• Public toilets
• Water taps
• Picnic areas
• Basketball half court
