Hays Paddock, Longstaff Street, Kew East




This is the original all-abilities playground in Melbourne. Great for young, old, disabled and able-bodied kids. A large enclosed area full of discovery. This has been feted as one of the best playgrounds in Melbourne for a number of years. It is a beautifully crafted Play Space rather than an Adventure Playground. It is adventure with a little a - certainly if you equate Adventure with adrenaline. Nevertheless it packs a lot of punch - many slides and swings, large butterflies flying above, large see-saw, ring of toadstools to jump across, springers, large rope climbing frame, large hammocks to swing back and forth, big sandpit and other additions.

One good aspect is that most landing zones have a soft springy base - landing on this was like being Neil Armstrong bouncing on the moon in zero gravity.

The playground area is fenced with safety gates. Outside is a wetlands area with a bird hide overlooking this area inside the playground. There is a also a learner's bike circuit. There are toilets outside the playground area.

The playground can get very busy at times which spoils your ability to really enjoy it properly (and makes you irritated trying to find a car parking spot).

Something for everyone. All fenced in to keep my run-away toddler in. Interesting activities I've not seen elsewhere. Adults (and prams) can easily follow kids up to the top of the wooden structure. Lots of shade. Kids love the sandpit structure. I love the large hammock!

Easily one of the best playgrounds in Melbourne. Lots of interesting things for the kids to do and play. Regardless of where you live, this is well worth a visit.
