Thomas Street South Reserve, Thomas Street, Hampton



Some would say "this is the mother of all wooden adventure playgrounds in Melbourne" Includes a huge array of levels, cubby holes, walkways (many of which unexpectedly move), slides, flying fox, fireman's pole and monkey bars. Four swings under shade cloth.

BBQ, shaded tables and seats, toilets and water tap. Set amongst lovely native trees and there is a large area to play ball games in. Almost entirely fenced in with the main gate being child proof.

Wow Margaret and others - not everything has to relate to terrorism... I can guarantee you that describing something large as "the mother of all whatevers.." has been around for ALOT longer than Hussein and the international war on terrorism... Seriously, I am totally shocked by these pathetic comments about a harmless description of a park!

My kids love this park and all of the little hidden stairs and nooks they can find. They always have fun. The only downside is trying to get them to leave! Oh..... and it would be nice if there was a fence around just the play area as due to the size of the playground you can often lose sight of the kids. My now 7 year old was a wanderer and would often run right to the back of the park and back along the open drain which caused me a few scares. Definitely worth checking out..... but watch those wandering toddlers.

Wow Margaret, describing something as "the mother of all .....) does not have to mean war or something bad. It just means something is big, like the park! like a big ice cream. I hope you realise you comments are the mother of all comments here, talk about put a damper on a nice bunch of posts about this fabulous park.

Great reserve for kids - plus even better that there is the lovely little cafe called Thomas St Grocery only a minute walk from the park. great coffee and food is tasty and well priced too.

We have been coming here from Rowville for years. We bring food for a BBQ or picnic - sometimes even buy fish and chips from Hampton Street. The kids love it here. A bottle of wine and a picnic rug - it's a cheap and relaxing day out.. Beats the joke of a playground we have at our local park!

'Mother' meaning biggest. That's all. Lighten up

And who is the lovely man who provides the pony hire. I must get his business details for a private party....

Such a fabulous playground where children and adults can explore and create their own little worlds. I remember coming to this park as a child and I just took my 3 children here yesterday! I am still impressed! I'm going to enquire about having one in my town put in place!

Yes, please rewrite the description! This is not amusing or clever.

Who cares about the comment, its a great park and I laughed at the comment too! People, take a more light hearted view as there is enough seriousness in the world to sweat the small stuff.

Yes I agree that is a strange way to describe a park what on earth does he have to do with it? We love the park at Thomas St however it would be great if everyone picked up their rubbish and if the bins are full take it home because ther is a major problem with rats and mice!

Agreed Margaret, I opened this page and was put off by such a ridiculous description. It should be removed.

Best park ever!, I remember my mum taking me here as a kid.

I do not understand the relevance of the first sentence of the paragraph describing the Thomas St Reserve playground. If someone could clarify the Saddam Hussein comment that would be great... Admin - It is a play on words from when Saddam Hussein threatened that if international forces led by the United States attacked Iraq, it would be "the mother of all wars"
