Skinners Park, Dorcas Street, South Melbourne




Skinners Park is open in the late afternoons weekdays and on weekends. Staffed.

Recommended for children aged 6-12 but our four year old loved it.

Has a eclectic mix of things to do including basketball/soccer court (under shade cloth), chicken house, cubby house in a tree with large curved slide, very long chain traverse, pond, trampoline, various cubby houses, structure from shipping containers (now I know where our belongings from Holland went to!), old fashioned slide, artwork, swings, see-saw, climbing net and many other things to explore.

Set amongst trees so quite a lot of shade. There is so much colour splashed about that you feel assaulted by it. I was happy to enjoy a white wall afterwards.

Entrance between 209 & 211 Dorcas Street, South Melbourne

Went here on Saturday. Kids loved it. Rustic and rough - just the thing for today's cotton wool kids :)

It looks as though it's been shut down, looks pretty derelict. Admin - The playground is only open at certain times and according to the council is still active.
