Wombat Bend Playspace, Duncan Street, Templestowe Lower




A cracker! Not a huge amount of play equipment but it is beautifully crafted together amidst a nicely landscaped area. There is a variety of play equipment for different sizes and abilities.

There is a wooden maze with mirrors and buttons to press. Our kids had a ball pressing the buttons and listening to the funny voices. Also musical bridge, sandpit, family sized see-saw, cube with rope climbing frame on side and top, two real flying foxes, stand-on spinning disks, double slides down a small embankment, hidden cubby and a fantastic bat wing carousel with hanging seats which parents push around. The thrill of the ride depends on how energetic the parents are!

The playground has a native garden with paths galore. There is a BBQ, water tap and a few sheltered tables inside but lots of picnicking opportunities along the river outside. Toilets.

Wombat Bend is fenced with a child proof gate and embraces inclusive designs to demonstrate best practice in providing a play space for people of all abilities. Finns Reserve connects to the Main Yarra Trail via a swing bridge and is also the start of the Ruffey Creek Linear Trail.

Awesome park and amenities, great for a child's birthday party - close proximity to bbq, sheltered bench tables and chairs, toilets and play equipment. Great natural / nature vibe. Very secured areas with fences and gates.

Quite sheltered even on this extremely windy day. Also worth mentioning one of the flying foxes has a swing harness.

Lovely park, better for younger kids though and gets quite busy. I like it because it has lots of natural trees and planting around with paths which makes it ideal for hide and seek. Nice sandpit as well.
