Skinners Park, Dorcas Street, South Melbourne




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.

Skinners Park is open in the late afternoons weekdays and on weekends and is staffed. It is recommended for children aged 6-12 but our four year old loved it.

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.

Note: The playground was temporarily closed from 15 December 2016 to 31 January 2017 after preliminary soil testing indicated the presence of contaminants often found in inner city areas. Council has now completed works to minimise people’s contact with the underlying soil and the playground is now open again. See here for more details.

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.
