Doug Hull Adventure Park Playground, Carr Street, Coburg




Nice elevated position overlooking Merri Creek. This is the Doug Hull Adventure park. I think Doug must have been someone who suffers apprehension putting his foot into a bowl of sardines because this is not entitled to be called an Adventure park. Nonetheless, it is a very nice playground with the main structure forming a square which can be traversed without touching the ground (if you are good enough). Comprises wave slide, fireman's pole, ladders, climbing mat, walkway, chain bridge, monkey bars, horizontal bars, disks on a vertical pole, flying fox, stepping stones, balance beam, hanging rope traverse and climbing walls. Also stand-on spinning disk (broken), springers, train play area and swings. Seats with shade. Does pack a lot of equipment into a small area.

Hi. I'm Janine Hull. My father was a very active member of Coburg Rotary. He was a repetition engineer in Coburg. He died at 43 and because he was so loved and so very generous the Coburg rotary club decided to do an adventure park and name it after Dad. This was in the 1970s. There was a fort hull and amazing adventure swings and climbing area. They put his rotary pin into a rock with his name and within months someone had pinched it. It was an amazing area for kids. ADMIN - Thanks for telling us about the history of the playground

This is a lovely play area with lots of equipment in a small space. You can easily walk to The Coburg Lake Reserve playground and the De Chene Parade playground via the Coburg lake path system (looking for ducks along the way). All three playgrounds are well appointed (rating highly on this site) and visiting them all makes for a fun afternoon out.
