Edithvale Recreational Reserve, Fraser Avenue, Edithvale




This playground has had a complete replacement. Previously some of it looked old enough to remember the Russian Revolution. Welcome to perestroika and glasnost!

Huge high wooden structure with big dual wave slide, very high fast wave slide, high spiral ladder, tall scrambling/climbing wall, high rope net traverse and two large square nets; one at a high height and one near the ground (don't worry, the gaps on the high one are not large enough for little Johnny to fall through), ramps and steps to access the structure, tic-tac-toe, steering wheel, mirror, panels, clock and fireman's pole.

Also basket swing, rotating cup with hand-wheel and swings. There is an area with wooden frog and colourful toadstools. The frog is missing a leg - a local Frenchman is obviously still partial to frogs legs.

Shelter with BBQs and tables. Unshaded table and seats. Water tap. Next to oval and cycling track. Well protected from road by a fence. In general, best suited to older kids due to the height.

Hahahaha, "perestroika and glasnost". That was so true. When we first moved here the park was rusty and awful. Now this park is very good and the kids love it. Indeed even more improved with a decent cycle path around the greater park. Rosie (comment above) is correct. The toilets are about 300 metres away so not good for a last minute rush and there is not a gate. That said the street is a quiet back street and not a main road.

Not so greatly protected from the road if you have the sort of toddler who likes to run onto roads. There's no gate, and part of the fence can be ducked under easily by a small person. There's no toilets handy either. Other than that, it's an enjoyable playground. The kids want to go back next week :)
