Love the park but the cafe is over priced and service there rude! Pity because there is so much potential for the cafe to be truly gorgeous! I would give the park a rating of 10 out of 10 if the cafe served decent coffee at a reasonable price!

Life is unfair? Yep, but this park was not handed out on a plate. Two years of community effort, and I mean effort, including massive fundraising and raising a volunteer army. Built over a 5 day period using donated time, a lot of donated tools and equipment, food, building materials and a LOT of community spirit. We had kids make decorative tiles, scrubbing tyres, helping to plant trees and sand and oil the timber. Schools, Scouts/Guides, Rotary, Lions, mothers' groups, you name it, we were there. During the build we rolled up our sleeves and mixed concrete, cut timber, lifted posts made sandwiches and salads, and cooked sausages.
As a clarification, the names on the fence represent only a fraction of the volunteers and all donated money to buy a fence paling -- it paid for the fence and provided additional funds for the hire and purchase of those things we could not get donated.
I strongly recommend other community groups consider doing the same.

Absolutely great playground, it's a shame the staff at the cafe downgraded my star rating on this park.

"A lot of people living in Malvern make a lot of money and also have this play park - life doesn't seem fair." That comment is a disgrace, you are supposed to be commenting on the park, if I choose to work hard, study and put all MY hard earned money into a house in a good neighbourhood why should my children suffer. Last time I will use ths site
Admin - It's (attempted) humour. Obviously not very good humour ;-(

It's not fully enclosed. There is an entrance to the wooden fort which has no gate, otherwise a great park with lots of room to run around and play in. If you have a wanderer, must keep a close watch.

The Community of Malvern East worked together to assist in providing this this park for little people and families to enjoy. As you walk along the outside of the fence line you can read the names of every person who donated time money or resources. There is a wonderful sense of community here and it not matter what the family income is. As a student Mum let me assure you not everyone has high incomes! What makes this park so special to enjoy with your children is the pride people take in looking after there local environment and and each other. The fort is a great way for parents to play with their children at the Park because its designed with you in mind to. The cafe is ok but over priced for some its a place to take a picnic and by and ice cream that's it library is great spot to hide later in the day with tired little people and read some stories.
