Valley Reserve Playspace

by Lorraine A (follow)
Nature playground in Mount Waverley

If you don't like nature on the city's doorstep, fresh air, adventure playgrounds, or a little sand for the kids to get messy in, than best you look away now.



Because this 15 hectares of unspoilt land with its walking trails and adventure playground, is AMAZING! And only a stone's throw from the city.

If you want your kids getting back to nature, enjoying imaginative play, challenging their climbing abilities on the aerial obstacles or being fearless kids, then this is a must visit playground!

You would not believe me if I were to show you these pictures and tell you this playground is in Mount Waverley, or rather 20km from Melbourne's CBD, but that's exactly where this hidden gem is!



The first thing I heard when we got out of the car? Birds! Not cars, not trucks or any other sounds that you might associate with being on the outskirts of the city. The next thing I heard was another unexpected surprise "Mum, I've caught a pet lizard, can I take him home?"



Then the race was on to see who could climb the highest, be the fastest on the flying foxes, become the next 'Master Chef' by cooking the best rock hamburger on the 'BBQ' in the sandpit, complete with 'fresh thyme and leaves'.

Our time at the playground could have lasted a few hours had we been prepared with a picnic or some sausages for the BBQ, but it's just a good excuse to go back again!

Valley Reserve Playspace is located at 80 Waimarie Dr, Mount Waverley VIC and incorporates nature trails, wildlife information, a fantastic aerial obstacle course, 2 huge flying foxes, a net swing, normal swings, lots of ropes, climbing frames, stepping stone challenges, a great sandpit and much more.
