Batman Park, Arthurton Road, Northcote




Good sized playground which is fully fenced and has two main play structures. The bigger structure has a big scrambling wall, high fireman's pole, rope climbing wall, inclined high bridge, clock, wave slide, tunnel, hooped ladder, standard ladder, clangers to hit against bars and shop front. The smaller structure has a wave slide, curved slide, steps, abacus, tunnel, steering wheel, disks on a vertical pole and shop front.

There is a sit on carousel for three kids, wooden Thomas train, train platform, big sandpit, rooster springer, horizontal bars, see-saw for four kids, lots of stepping stones/logs, chalk boards and four swings (including one with harness).

The area is very nicely landscaped with a lovely shady tree in the middle of the play area plus unshaded table, unshaded and shaded seats.

Outside the fenced area are some unshaded BBQs, seats, tables and water tap. Also toilets and a grassy area close to busy roads without fencing. Unfortunately the HUGE spiral slide has been removed. Boo hiss Darebin council.

Are people aware Darebin Council is trying once again to change Batman Park once again and they are proposing to build a 2 storey hub. This will include demolishing the present kindergarten and building a car park in its place. There will not be any new kinder places offered with the new building. Please email mayor@darebin.vic.gov.au and voice your objections before we lose more of the parkland.

Darebin Council is at it once again. They have now announced they are removing the big slide at Batman Park in January 2013 (the spiral one in the pics above). This was announced in late December without any public consultation before the decision was made. They are claiming the slide is unsafe, but it has been there for (at least) 30 years. They have not said why they believe it is unsafe. As usual, very poor form from Darebin Council. Save Our Slide.

Terrible upgrade - now completely useless and unsafe for babies and toddlers. Council has promised to re-do the upgrade but we'll see.

Disastrous 2011 "upgrade" by Darebin Council to fenced in area. Less equipment, inferior quality. Less swings. Main equipment piece unsuitable for toddlers. Much loved wooden Thomas engine removed. Hard concrete path now bisects playground. Play area ringed by concrete rather than previous wood. Established shade trees removed.

Play equipment in fenced in area is being totally replaced and upgraded in July 2011.
