Ringwood Lake Playground, Whitehorse Road, Ringwood




Ringwood Lake has had a brilliant upgrade. The playground has always had the advantage of a lovely setting amongst the trees next to Ringwood Lake. Now some real excitement factor has been added.

A tall tower, which is accessible from the platform below by steps, stands high among the tree tops with a big straight tunnel slide dropping down to earth. At a lower level are two more, less heart thumping, tunnel slides curving down to the ground. The platform which the tower sits on has access via a ramp, steps, rope bridge and a rigid frame ladder - having so many choices may not be ideal for kids who can't make up their mind.

Around the base is a little flying fox, fireman's pole, area of suspended ropes with wobbly rubber steps, stand on carousel, poles with sculptures of an owl, ladybugs and frog, sit-in spinning cup and wooden carvings of a duck, fish, pelican and kangaroo on the ground.

Across the path is a climbing cube with climbing wall, ladders and rope net roof.

Close to this area are two shelters with BBQs, two tables, water tap and two circular unshaded tables. At the bottom end of the playground there are toilets.

Further up the hill is a climbing area with poles with climbing holds, stand on spinner and monkey bars. Fall down here and you'll come face to face with a giant gecko.

Across the path is an even bigger lizard which has a water tap with hand wheel to pump water which travels down the back of the lizard, through a sluice gate into a large sandpit which is surrounded by more giant lizards, snakes and worm. Keep an eye open for precious gems along the path of the water. Have a time out and play a tune on the large metal turtle drum. I'm sure the parents will enjoy the melodious tunes.

Ringwood Lake Playground

Go a little higher up the hill to find six swings in a row including one with a harness and another face-to-face swing for parent and child. There is also a Liberty Swing for those in a wheelchair, see-saw and fun musical instrument.

The only negative is that it is so close to Ringwood Lake and the busy Maroondah Highway so you need to be very vigilant.
