Wally Tew Reserve Playground

by Lorraine A (follow)
Playground on the edge of the Dandenong Ranges

Wally Tew Reserve has a lovely playspace that's located just on the edge of the stunning Dandenong Ranges.

We stopped off on the way to the 1,000 steps picnic ground in Ferntree Gully for a wander up to One Tree Hill. It's literally only 2 kilometres away from this popular tourist spot, yet it seems like only the locals know about it!

It is a little tucked away, being located behind the library and near the community garden, so unless you know it's there, you could easily miss it.



When we arrived, autumn leaves were falling in the breeze and my little girl was having a great time chasing them, scooping them up and throwing them back up in the air. The trees tie the natural themes of the 'Forest Floor' playspace together beautifully.

There are so many elements in this playspace to capture the kid's imaginations. The feature pieces are the two giant bugs captured below.




One of the things that I particularly liked about this playspace was the artistic elements, combined with the practicality of it being fully fenced. Anyone with more than one toddler at a playground will appreciate that!

My little girl loved the net swing, had fun on the flying fox, unfortunately hit her head climbing up the inside of the structure to go down the slide, but luckily recovered quickly to explore the rest of the playground.



You will find a sand pit with a really cool little digger, 2 swing sets, a Liberty swing, several slides, a long flying fox with disk seat, climbing frames, a see-saw, fireman's pole, a spinning net cone (if that makes sense) and a few other things that I'm sure to have forgotten.

There are two shelters, a BBQ, drinking fountain, bike parking, picnic tables, lots of seats, good toilet facilities, lots of parking, a bike trail, sports ovals, a creek, lots of shade trees and plenty of green spaces for ball games.




Tip: We parked next to the library (enter off Burwwod Hwy opposite Ferntree Gully Aldi).

Other things of interest to do in the area include:
Trees Adventure ropes course and cafe
Or perhaps enjoy a 'Monster Milkshake' at nearby Koffee Bar
Feed the birds at Grants Picnic Ground
